This car has exeeded all of my expectations. It is comfortable, quiet, and has great acceleration. All of the features, including radar cruise control and other electronic safety devices are awesome. To get these features in other cars you need to buy a top of the line package, but, in Mazda they are in all of them. I love my car.
Had a fantastic experience here at Mazda Escondido!! Barb was an absolute pleasure to work with!

It shouldn't be compared to the normal Honda CRV or others it is typically compared to. smooth drive and luxury features - it's the highest value for your $ - compare it's features and drive vs Audit, BMW, and Mercedes - Mazda wins!!!
Happy deal! Beautiful car.meeting all expectations with lots of new toys and gadgets
Love my 2018 CX-5 Grand Touring

I traded in my 2014 Touring CX-5 (fairly high mileage) for a 2018 Grand Touring CX-5. I loved my 2014 CX-5 and was actually surprised by how much more excited I was about the 2018 CX-5 after I made the purchase and drove it a bit. It feels like a luxury car without the price. The upgrades in styling and comfort were more significant than I realized. More importantly, the upgrades in technology are incredible! The engine is more efficient; I recently got 32 miles per gallon on a road trip, and that given the car is heavier due to additional noise insulation. Features like the rain sensing wipers, radar adjusted cruse control, and lane sensing are terrific. I'm still trying to learn all the features of Mazda Connect. Finally, the car is a smooth, fairly quiet ride and seems just as nimble as my 2014 model.
Good quick and informative service. Service manager was polite and efficient.
Told me about issues that will need to
Be addressed in the near future.

An amazing vehicle!

I am rather new to the Mazda family but I purchased a 2016 Mazda 3 which I had no issues with so I took advantage of some early incentives and traded up to a 2018 Mazda CX-5.
What an amazing vehicle. Similar features as my previous vehicle but with lots of updates and new looks. Also a bunch of newer features like heated seats and individual climate control.
Oh man, what an awesome experience! I woke up at 4am on 10/27/18 to start my walk to Carlsbad from Pacific Beach. Upon my arrival, I got the pleasure of working with Paul Guardino who is in the Internet Sales department. Btw, kidding about the walk . Paul helped me in buying a new 2018 Mazda6 Touring. This man knows his stuff. He was very knowledgeable, patient, and transparent throughout the whole transaction. He also went above and beyond with his hospitality and giving me information on which I had no idea of at the time. They need to give this man a promotion!!! Also, throughout the process, I met Ron Pitkin, the Sales Manager and Mike Lauzun the Finance Manager. These guys were friendly, helpful, and I'm glad they had a sense of humor. Let's not forget to mention how friendly the rest of the staff was either. Between meeting these three superb individuals, and the rest of the staff. I felt like I fit right in with these gentlemen and almost forgot I was buying a new car. Without a doubt, this was the best car dealership experience I've had.
Nicer than my RAV4

I had a 2015 RAV4 Limited and find the 2018 CX5 Touring to be a much nicer car. The fit and finish is excellent, it exudes luxury. The safety features are excellent. Legroom all around is very good. I like the lines of the car better than the Toyota. I cannot comment on this model's reliability but am trusting to Mazda's very good reputation. I am very happy with my purchase.
Stephen Back and his crew did an amazing job giving me a great deal on a trade in that I also got from BOB BAKER Mazda!
Feel like I’m driving a luxury car

The look and feel of this car is great. It rides smooth and quiet. The infotainment system is easy to navigate. Has great features like blind spot, cross traffic, lane departure alert and voice command. Our youngest is still seating in his car seat rear facing so it does take up a bit of space in the back seat and doesn’t dive the person in the front seat much leg room plus we wish the trunk space was a little bigger but it gets the job done. Once we flip the car seat around it will add much more space to the front passenger to lean back.
As a women buying a new car is always a bit overwhelming. It seems that a lot of dealerships still have that good ol boy attitude. This is my second purchase of a new car/SUV that I have purchased myself as a single women. I have always felt he need to bring a male with me to be taken seriously While on the search for the SUV I purchased the proof was in the pudding, as soon as we got on the lot of most of the dealerships the salesman went straight to the man I was with and started asking him what he was looking for. That is so very frustrating as a women. However I went to Carlsbad Mazda and David Salow
was great, start to finish. He really listened to me found what I was looking for and we made the deal. He even would make a house call if needed regarding you vehicle . I bought the Mazda SUV CX5 Grand Touring 17 and love it and the way everyone at the dealership I dealt with.
Ren was extremely professional, helpful & friendly

Ren Smith was brilliant throughout the whole process. Attentive to my needs both on the phone prior to my visit to the showroom and during my time at the dealership. I am extremely happy with the car I purchased. Everyone worked as a team to help me drive home in the car I was looking for.
I recently applied to several local Mazda dealers online for a quote on a new Mazda CX5 Grand Touring and while I received an email from all of them, Don and the Ren from Bob Baker Mazda were the only ones that followed up, with Ren helping me to schedule a test drive that same day, a Friday evening, even though it was a 40 minute drive from downtown San Diego to Carlsbad. The entire team was great.. from the service manager, who was getting ready to leave but helped them locate, put the fuses in and pull the protective wrapping off the hood, top and wheels, to the detail guys that stayed late to fully prep my car, which was fresh off the truck. But Ren was amazing and went above and beyond helping me to get the deal I wanted, staying until almost 11:00 pointing out all of the finer features on the vehicle before I drove off the lot. Absolutely the best! I love my new CX5 and would recommend Ren and Bob Baker Mazda to anyone in the market for a new vehicle. Zoom Zoom
