2016 CX-5, Sturdy Sporty Descent Drive
Pretty good sporty drive, the kicker switch is cool! Feels somewhat bumpy over potholes and bumps in the road. USB ports located in front of the gear shift knob. . . Hard to find and see. The cigarette lighter is under the armrest console, very dumb place. 5 yrs later at 51k miles I heard a noice of rattling like somethings loose. I believe it’s the plastic wings on the side of the rear window. Ever time I go over a bad bumpy road it rattles, very annoying!!!!!!!
High Tech and Reliable!
What an amazing car! I was looking at the CX-5 for a while for its reliability and safety, and when I got one I was blown away by its technology, safety features, design, and gas mileage! A very nice infotainment system that is very easy to use, controlled by a knob. It’s blind spot monitoring is responsive and only has a sound when using your turn signal. The gas mileage is amazing for an SUV, about 24-32 mpg. The car has a very clean design, even better than some of the 2020s. I would only recommend getting the 2.5 L I4 that is available in the Touring and Grand Tourings, as I’ve heard the 2.0 L I4 is a bit sluggish. Handles very well, very capable.
most reliable and best value car i've ever owned
