Love our Mazdas!

We have owned our 2022 CX-5 Turbo for 10 moths and it is a great vehicle. Our previous SUV was an Acura RDX Advance. It too was great but this Mazda is of a higher quality and $10-$15,000 less when purchased new. Every once in a while the doors don’t lock when I walk away (I have it set up to do so) and that is the only issue I have had in 10 months and 10,000 miles. I highly recommend any Mazda product. We also own a ‘21 Miata RF, have owned several Miatas along with a Mazda6 Signature and a CX-9 Grand Touring. All have been great vehicles.



Have had our 2022 for 8 months now. It's been great, the fit/finish and ride are superior, IMHO, then my previous CRV and Rav4 vehicles. The only thing I would like to see is a touch screen entertainment center rather then the manual knob. The interior is well laid out with quality accents, feel and quiet, again far superior to our previous SUVs. So far it's been mechanically sound with no issues and we are enjoying it very much.


Good value

Great gas mileage. Interior is not overly cluttered. Exterior is stylish. Great value for the money. Rear seating has plenty of leg room. Would recommend



DO NOT RECOMMEND. This car has given nothing but issues. It has break system failure, screen glitching, and a pinhole in the engine due to Mazda failing to remove all bubbles from the molds when putting the car together. I have spent over 8,000 in repairs so far and its a 2019.


2022 Mazda cx5 Premium Plus Package

Outstanding Features in the Premium Plus Package. A sporty model, fun to drive with Automatic Transmission with Auto Manual Shifting, Steering wheel paddles and a Sport Mode. The Heads UP Display not only features speed but also Blind Spot warnings, lane warnings, Speed Limit Signs, hand on wheel warnings and programable Variable Speed Cruise Control. Safety features are numerous including side, front and rear crash mitigation, automatic braking and Rain sensitive Windshield Wipers. Interior appointments are numerous including both simulated manual shifting mounted on the center console gear shift and paddle boards on the heated adjustable steering wheel. The Mazda cx5 Premium Plus Package includes easy to use center console-controlled display, heated steering wheel, heated and airconditioned front seats and heated rear seats as well as Memory controlled seats, mirror and Heads Up Display adjustments for 2 drivers. The Door and console trim is designed to match the Leather appointed seats with matched stitching. The 2.5 Liter engine offers the power and acceleration you would expect from a premium model. Sport Mode is available with the push of a button. The control panel for the Display are center console mounted to scroll through options with the touch of a Game Console type mechanism. Audio is fully customizable. The Mazda App alerts you of tire pressure, oil level and service warnings as well as a remote start and remote lock features. Front seat leg room is better than expected, though rear seat leg room is limited. Rear seats with a 60/40 split fold easily without removing the leather appointed head rests. Control your variable speed control, audio options and phone integrated into the heated leather appointed steering wheel. The Dash Board display includes your safety features, maximum mileage, current mileage per hour, speed and RPM displays as well as several other warnings including speed limit signs. Built-in Navigation is available as well as Android and Apple Play. Set your lighting options in the auto mode as well as adjust the rain sensitive windshield wipers. An awesome Premium Ride at a Moderate Price, with appointments typically found in omly Luxury vehicles. I recieve approximately 22 miles per hour city and 32 miles highway for a 28 miles per gallon mixed driving.


2021 Carbon Edition

I own a 21 Carbon Edition. Great vehicle. And worth every penny. I came from owning only Hondas. Traded in a 2021 Accord Sport SE with 7000 miles. I have 22k miles and have not any issues so far. I love the color, step in height, the look, the interior, the exterior. Average 29-31 on the highway. Best decision I've made concerning buying a new vehicle


Excelente highly recommended very good performance

Best and transmission is normal excellent interior is very luxury for the model, excellent quality interior and exterior, recommend for family small, motor is high performance in sport drive mode


Great Car & Great Dealership

Everyone at Empire Mazda in Huntington was wonderful from start to finish. AZ & Mike Farina were both very helpful and patient - 10 stars for service :)


Very Happy with my 2022 CX5!!!

Very Happy with my recent purchase of my 2022 CX5 (preferred package). Although I haven't had it for a long time yet, I can feel this compact suv is built well and runs smoothly. The interior (white parchment) is very classy with plenty of accessories and features. The seats are very comfortable. The exterior (in my opinion) is two-fold. The front is very stylish and sleek, whereas the rest of the body is just rather ordinary. But I like that. I don't like cars/suvs that overdo it with exterior styling. Engine wise, this vehicle has adequate acceleration. It will not beat a porsche, but that's okay. I need the taming after driving my Acura RSX for many years. I opted out of the more premium packages because I did not want a turbo engine. The maintenance and repair costs are more for those engines. Overall, I would definitely recommend this vehicle. Do your studies. Plenty of reviews/test drives on Youtube. Compare vehicles, costs, packages. You'll find that this one is rated highly.


Excellent service added bonus amazing car
