The cx-5 is a reasonably affordable, well performing crossover vehicle.

As of this point, my vehicle seems to be reliable transportation. I have had very few problems with it although currently, the seat belt chime sounds for no reason even when the seat belt is fastened. I bought this vehicle at a time when I was commuting so it was a good combination of decent gas mileage and decent cargo space. My first choice was a pickup truck but none met my needs for gas mileage. My only complaint about the way the vehicle drives is it seems the brakes are a little touchy and sometimes grab harder than I think they should. I have experienced that same thing with other Mazda vehicles. The cx-5 is reasonably comfortable to drive and has plenty of legroom for tall people. When I bought the vehicle, I was looking for affordability so I do not have any special features you can get on other cx-5's.

Comfortable, easy to park - has a really short turning radius.

Love my cx-5, very comfortable for traveling, my only complaint is that when highway driving there is a lot of road noise. Wish they could insulate better so the ride was quieter. Have had no problems with reliability, and car is comfortable. Like nav system and route planning tools. Also like the that the rear seat folds down to allow for more cargo space, since most of our traveling only involves the two of us. Gas mileage is great and is good for in-town and highway driving. Wish that the passenger side seat had the adjustment features that the driver's side does would also help with comfort. Bought our vehicle new in 2014 and would definitely buy another Mazda SUV in the future.

The Mazda CX 5 Fits The Bill!

I just love this SUV. It fits the bill! It has room in the back (trunk area) for the dog, fits 2 child car seats, and is so very comfortable. I love that it sits high up. I was able to put roof racks on top, after market, to move the kayaks. I have a 6 speed, which is the only one in 3 states to have an SUV that I needed. The only think that I have a problem with is the blind spot on the passenger side. It may be that I sit so far up that I cannot see in the area. Other than that I love my car.
