Review

We leased this cx5 about a year ago and so far no problems at all has one of the nicest interiors in the class very luxury with features only found on more expensive cars great on gas handles great we look into the rav4 and other similar cars but this cars was the best also has a regular automatic transmission not a cvt and naturally aspirated engine many other cars with those while i was doing my research found had problems the only con i con i can find is the piano black center console gets dusty really easy and is easy to scratch other that that is a great car

Review

This cars paint chips everytime the smallest pebble hits it. I have owned this car for less than a year and the front hood is covered with about twenty paint chips! Before you buy this car be sure to google "bad paint on mazda cx 5". My understanding is that the paint is supposed to be some sort of eco friendly paint. I would estimate the immediate decline in resale value of my car to be about $5000

Review

we have the 2017 touring with nav... almost 14000 miles to date... the ride is composed and quiet, we had the transmission reset as up and down shifts were not smooth. have the snowflake metallic paint, very nice, but the touch up oem paint is horrid at best, even with shaking the pen til it gave me elbow pain, the color does not match at all. still a bit peeved that mazda did not include sirius xm capability in this trim class, however, using an xm receiver with antenna plugged into the auxillary plug, it works. a problem though, the manual lumbar support will not stay locked in full extension, the dealer is superb but the first two fixes did not resolve the problem. currently awaiting next potential solution by mazda, replacing the entire seat frame for the top portion of the seat. the mileage to date is average, with a few longer rides the average is 23.7, which does not match the honda crv's. oh, by the way, the oem geolander tires were god awful, and expensive to replace. due to bad luck, i had three tire punctures, one ruined the sidewall. so, i bought 4 new general altimax tires, which are superior in tirerack.com ratings, and much less expensive to replace.

Review

There's nothing awful about this car, but there's nothing special despite the reviews you might read. The visibility is pretty lousy. There are a lot of techno gizmos in the car that are mostly superfluous. I'd love my old radio back from my 2002 Jeep Liberty over the overly teched up, but difficult to use system in this car. Oh, sometimes the electronic ignition just doesn't work. That's why I'm writing this review right now, because my key suddenly does not function and the car is 11 months old and has just 8500 miles on it. Typical for this car. Too many modern appliances and not enough thought in making it work well. One good thing ... my wife hates driving it so much that she won't take it out. If I had to do it over again I definitely wouldn't have bought it. My advice? Neither should you.

Review

This vehicle is clearly better handling, and displays better overall sportiness over it's rivals. If you enjoy driving this is your vehicle. My only complaints seem to have been addressed in the 2018 model. Front seat comfort/ support was improved, road noise was improved to Best in class. Other than that seems to beat the competition in looks/ style inside and out, mpg and cost compared to Honda CRV, and Toyota RAV 4 , the two main competitors.
