I did quite a bit of test driving and reading about the various cars and suvs in the similar segment. I was impressed by how far Mazda has come along to design and built good looking cars, engines, chassis, etc. The CX-5 is a 2.4 L 4 cylinder developing 185 hp. The interior design and quality is up market. The exterior design is smooth and sporty. The engine for its size and power is very peppy and responsive. The suspensions are stiff enough to give you great handling and making you feel like a semi sports car on rails. The model i bought was a Grand Touring variant which has a sports mode and also a trip Tronic gear box. The trip tronic gear box is sensitive to your input of up shifting or down shifting but half a second slower from our input. The sports mode is wild and makes the car up shift and down shift based on our tune of driving. The sports mode and the Trip Tronic shifting combined is pretty responsive. The automatic gear is pretty smooth. I also found the road noise is reduced, no wind noise as the cabin is well sound proofed. The engine grunt can be heard inside when the engine is revving at a higher rpm. The overall comfort is good, little bumpy since the suspensions are stiff. The fuel consumption is not the highest in the class and gave about 23.5 miles per gallon. This is should be fact that the engine is towards more responsive and quick compared to a economy mode engine. The 19 inch wheels with 255 size tyres adds to the handling. Overall, I am happy with the car and would recommend to anyone looking for a family suv/cross over that is powerful, conformable and handles well.
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.
Happy with the efforts of everyone involved in my deal.

Adam, Gregg, Ryan and the rest of the team at Star really put in time and effort to make me happy in the truck I wanted, with a rate, payment, and ext warranty that I expected. This is my 5th vehicle from Star, and I will continue to deal there, as well as send my friends.
Best car I've ever owned

I've owned this car for 4 years and never had any issues, never needed to see a mechanic - only to replace tires and do oil changes.
I bought a car in July from Bill, didn???t have the best credit, ended up leaving in a nice 2016 Elantra. A week ago I totaled that car so I knew 100% that I was going back to Bill! Today I am leaving in a beautiful 2016 Buick Verano! I couldn???t be happier with the experience and the car! Thanks again bill!! 10/10 recommendation

I bought it because it looked cool and I have never heard anything bad about Mazda. After two months of owning this car it has met all my expectations and then some! It’s teally fun and comfortable to drive. Really enjoy it and would highly recommend buying one
Although the vehicle sold before I could get there (didn't put down a deposit), this dealership accommodated everything that I needed. Price that I wanted was agreed upon via email, which some dealers won't do. No complaints.
One of the good looking SUV with great driving

One of the good looking SUV with great driving dynamics. Interior is upscale premium. I am using this car in my everyday's commute and I am happy with this car.
I went to Ray Price Volvo a bit ago in need of a new car, and came out successful. Gary Cox met us out front and was extremely helpful. He was very patient and informative, and helped me through the whole purchase. Even though I was only interested in a fairly cheap, used car, Gary sill put full focus on my needs and was extremely patient and accommodating. He wasn't pushy about selling the car to me, and I didn't feel any pressure at all. Greg and Brittany were also very helpful with the process. I purchased my new car for an amazing price, and I am very grateful for it. I'd recommend Ray Price to any used car buyer. The staff are extremely helpful and kind. Thank you Gary, Greg, and Brittany!!
Beautiful looks, some cheaply made parts.

The G.T. model is the one to get due to content. Lots of plastic, though. Had to find & fix various interior rattles (used felt pieces). Very sporty handling- nice highway flyer. Great MPG for size.
I went to Ray Price Volvo a bit ago in need for a new car. Gary Cox met us at the front and was extremely helpful through the whole process of my purchase. He was very patient and informative, and was completely understanding that I was unsure about making a purchase on the spot. Brittany and Greg were also extremely helpful with the whole process. Everybody that helped us at Ray Price gave us great service. I loved that they weren't pushy at all about selling the car. They gave me a wonderful deal and I am completely satisfied with my purchase. I would definitely recommend this dealership to used car buyers. My daughter made a purchase here last year and had a similarly great experience. The staff are extremely helpful and kind! Thank you again Gary, Brittany and Greg!
Most comfortable ride we have owned

This is one nice car. Rides sooooo well plus decent mileage. Love all of the GT features including the Mazda Radar range which automatically slows down while on cruise if someone inform pulls out without looking. Car is in great shape. No accidents. Awesome paint job. Been garage kept since day 1.Florida car
Best car buying experience ever!! This place has it going. I was an out of state buyer, the vehicle I chose to buy was accurately described, the price was fair and I got no pressure to purchase. The closing was swift and I was on my way in a very short time. They also followed up with me as I had a lengthy drive home. Ray Price took care of me!! A+++
My second Mazda 3
by Lulu from Orlando
December 13, 2018
Has the feel of a sporty car and handles very well. Smooth ride. Good gas mileage and little maintaince costs. Could have a little more legroom in back. Lip on trunk opening limits size of what can put in.
Would like a cup holder in drivers door. Husband has limited mobility and has difficult time getting in and out and adjusting the seat back tilt. He also feel the door handle is too far back and his elbow is stopped by the back of the seat. Like the backup camera and that it beeps when a car approaching from side, not just behind the car. Love the alerts on the mirrors of car in blind spot. Like GPS, but not always intuitive. Disappointed it doesn't seem to have moveable headlights.
Started helping my mom to find a 7 passenger vehicle for her and her grandkids. As usual, started looking at minivans. Started looking around on the old innerwebs and started looking at different vans and then a Pilot caught her attention. Found one on cars.Com that was near and had all the features she wanted, plus it was 8 passenger. Contacted Ray Price through cars.Com and had an email back in less than an hour with info and an invitation to visit. We visited a few days later and met with Mike who knew the vehicle well and made sure the buying process was quick and enjoyable.
Smoothest ride of any car I’ve owned.

Such a smooth drive. I drive a ton for work and I love the luxurious inner cabin. Great Bose sound system too. Great navigation system and blue tooth compatibility allows me to use Waze easily. As a realtor that is very important.
Great all around service and people. Facility is very nice, Advisor was very good and the service was completed in a timely manner.

I have the sport which is the bottom of the line but it is more car and style for the money compared to other choices in their same league. I absolutely love it!!! Sole Red ...complements all the time! Great on gas!
The Salesman Gee was very helpful. He explain everything to me and my daughter. The customer service was A+. If I have to buy another used car I will be going back to East Coast Car Mart.

Went to Ciocca knowing we wanted a new Forester. Milton Obando saw that we got the Forester we wanted at the price we wanted to pay. They did not have the car in the color we wanted on the lot, but he reserved one from their incoming inventory. When it did come in he even sent me pictures. He also gave us a tour of the facility so we'd be familiar with the service dept, etc. Also thanks to Drew in the financial department as he customized an extended coverage package for us and Gigi who did the 2 week post purchase review. I would definitely recommend Ciocca and Milton.
Very reliable and easily operable car.

I love it! I hate to sell it but expanding family means we are in need of a larger vehicle. It has kept me and my children safe during our use of it.
My vehicle was at the dealership for repairs, the dealership was in constant communication with me until the repairs were complete. The service was top rated and I would definitely recommend Cannon Motors to anyone.
