Had it for 3 years with growing family

The great: car is beautiful, felt like driving an expensive Audi or BMW. The good: never had a mechanical issue with just oil changes. Bought it new and it has performed as expected for 23K miles. The not so good: back-seat is tight if you need to carry a rear-facing baby car seat. Not recommended in this circumstance as the combined space of front and back seats will force a very uncomfortable position for either driver or front passenger or for both! The ugly: brake pads and rotors had to be replaced at 17K miles. Very annoying: as I expected a much longer durability on these components, I didn't bother to check very frequently and when I did check, it was too late for the rotors... Felt really upset about it.


Mazda CX5 - Fantastic Car

So far, we have no regrets. Actually, it was the best car we ever purchased. Very comfortable. Lots of space. It's indeed a mix of crossover and SUV.


Satisfied and filled with joy!

I've been searching and decided to go with the CX5 instead of a Honda CRV. Two great cars, but I love how the inside makes me feel, more legroom, the interior parchment color brightens the car and makes me smile each time I'm behind the wheel. The added features in the grand touring make the ride more manageable and relaxed knowing I have a car that is aware of its surroundings. Glad I chose my Mazda!!!


Just bought it, but love it so far.

Great styling. Good fit and finish on exterior and interior. So many luxury features that I haven't learned them all yet. Drives great, better than competition from Toyota. Nice power for a fuel efficient crossover. Love the information system. Need to wait a few months to see what the reliability will be


First time with mazda

it's a very good suv. Feels smooth on the rode and definitely safe with all the safety features in the car. Car does feel like a luxury vehicle without luxury price.


High quality vehicle

Very quiet on the highway with minimal wind noise. Good gas mileage and suspension. Solid on the road with great styling. Perfect size for most requirements


Solid Little Car

Reliable little vehicle and pretty cute for SUV. Rides nice has a few comforts and sits up nice and high so you can see the road better.

Very safe, good in snow. Great on gas for an SUV. Comfortable. Lots of safety features. Great value. Has been very reliable, w/o any issues
