Where Did We Drive It?
We drove our 2018 Mazda CX-5 about 1,700 miles in September, making up for a low-key, low-mileage August. The CX-5 traveled everywhere, from Northern California's Bay Area to Universal Studios in nearby Hollywood. In the course of those miles, we found a workaround for a lack of cargo hooks, learned how easy it is to install a front-facing child seat, encountered a slight stalling issue, and heard the rumor mill churning about a much-need powertrain upgrade.
