Speed camera warn, leather, electric seats, can heat up 3 levels.

The ride is firm because it has a tight suspension. The steering is easy to handle. Being short though means I can not put my foot on the pedals and have my right arm rest on the middle console. I think most new cars I looked at came the same way with armrest supposed to be on the middle console which does not move with you if your seat goes up. . I did tell mazda I liked the way the arm rest was on my old Honda which folded down from the seat on the right, so short people and tall people can rest their arm no matter where the driver seat is placed. The car has blind side warning, lane assisted warning, navigation, back up camera, wiper sensors, speed adjust s automatically on cruise control. After I got it I realized it had a speed camera warning sensor you can turn on. It will speak to you that a camera is coming up, but it is too sensitive and needs to be refined. It ends up warning you for cameras that are on nearby roads even if you are on a highway and there are no cameras on highways with speed limits above 55. If you blow a tire be prepared to spend $400 to replace it. They are 19 inch wheels. I like the grand touring package as it comes with all amenities like electric seat adjust, lumbar adjust, heated front seats, dual temperature control, leather seats which are not slippery because they have holes in them. You can control the radio channel and volume from on the front driver wheel. The car doors lock automatically when you go into gear. You can turn on or off smart features if you like. I have mine to automatically lock all doors when I leave. You can also lock it from remote control. Car has a key fob, you use a button to start it. I also got remote start which I use from my house mainly if it is too cold to warm it up. Three people can sit in back, but I a single user. When navigation screen is on, you can see the speed of the road you are on and it adjusts itself accordingly. It will turn red on screen if you go over. If you are tired at night and go over 40 mpg, you can set it to beep if you go out of your lane. It is a safe car, you can turn on any feature you want, or turn off any feature. You customize to your liking.

Ergonomic, comfortable, and smooth.

This vehicle has been great so far. Although it is a bit slow on acceleration, it seems to have enough power and can get you out of a tight spot. The sport / manual mode does have a bit more power, but it is just not as much fun as an actual stick shift. The feature that sold us on this vehicle over several others in its class is the fact that there's an option to get upgraded Audio / navigation / sunroof / etc. without being forced to have leather seats. Most vehicles only offer leather seats with upgraded interior, but 8 months out of the year in Arizona it is 100-118 degrees, and no one wants leather seats! Its bucket seats are very comfortable and although I haven't had to ride in the back seat, it seems comfortable. The interior cloth is easy to clean - again, very important in the summer. The back seat folds down almost flat, and our 2 large breed dogs can ride pretty comfortably back there. There's room for them to stand up, which impressed us. It is not very long but it has more height that you would think. I like the ergonomics, too; all the radio, navigation, and menu options for the flat screen are down near the shifter, so you can control everything with your arm resting comfortably on the console. The only other downside is that it locks after only about 20 seconds outside of the vehicle, so when gassing up or walking to it in a parking lot, I have to keep unlocking it. But, overall, this car has been pretty great so far.

Top notch safety features.

The only problem we have had with it was last winter when some rodents got in the engine and chewed through something that messed with the electrical functions. The repair shop said that it was because of the material that particular area was made of, which Mazda started using because it is better for the environment. Otherwise, I love this SUV. It is compact but roomy on the inside, and the safety features are top notch. The other day, when I was driving on the highway, a car switched lanes and was so close to my front bumper that the car began alerting, telling me to break immediately. Then, today, I was stopped at a red light, and when it turned green, the car in front of me started to go straight, then slammed on their brakes suddenly to make a right turn instead. Before I could even react to that, my car suddenly stopped and made a funny noise because my foot was still on the gas pedal (I guess). I still haven't fully processed that the car in front of me had a sudden change in plan, and my first thought was that the transmission in my car just went out. After a couple of seconds, I was back on my way though, and my car ran perfectly fine the rest of the day. Now, I think that it stopped to prevent me from hitting the car that was in front of me, and would not let the gas pedal function until the car had completely moved from being in front of any sensor.

Review of newly bought 2016 Mazda cx-5. Love this car!

I really love my Mazda cx-5. I bought the 2016 sport version new, so no 4WD, but the handling is still great. I live in a rainy state and even in our short snow season I am able to drive. The car drives smoothly, the gas and brake pedals are not too sensitive. It also fits different people very well, I myself am only 5"1' and used to have trouble reaching the pedals in my old car, but this fits perfectly. My partner also drives it sometimes and at almost 6" he fits well too. Maintenance wise it is super easy. I have only had to have the oil and air filter changed since getting brand new back in 2016. The only downsides I have noticed are - 1) there are not any air vents in the back seat. So on hot days I have to blast the ac so the people in the back do not overheat. Meaning myself and my front seat passenger are freezing! Since my car has been dubbed the road trip car I have had to purchase a portable fan for the back seat to refrain from driving in a freezer. 2) the trunk area is plenty big enough for shopping and moving boxes but not so roomy for a larger dog. I have 2 large dogs and I prefer to have them in the back seat rather than the trunk area. They would technically fit, but it is tight and does not seem all that safe if someone were to rear end me.

Fifth Mazda--I am satisfied.

This is my fifth Mazda. I have leased the last four. It is a reliable car. I did have to have the brakes replaced at 15, 000 miles. Luckily it was covered! I have not had many maintenance issues with any of my Mazdas. This Mazda cx-5 is a bit boxier than previous ones. I do not think it is a snazzy looking as my past cars. I have heated seats and a sunroof-which I love. The side lane changing feature is wonderful. The basic radio package is okay. I have found the navigation system is fine--once I figured out how to use it. One thing that has annoyed me to no end with this car is a plastic side piece located right where my right foot is. I hooked my foot under it every time and it falls off. I have had to have them put it back on several times as I cannot seem to figure out how to pop it back on. The back up cam is helpful. Other than that I do not have all the bells and whistles that were offered. Bluetooth works fine. I really love that feature. Overall the car is comfortable. I have driven the car on several long road trips and found the seats okay. Overall I am satisfied with this car and when my lease is up next year I will most likely get another Mazda.

Solid on the outside, cheap on the inside.

On the surface, the 2016 Mazda cx-5 has stylish good looks, great performance and if you go up to touring, adds nice features like blind spot, rear traffic warnings and navigation. I now own the vehicle for just over 2 years. I really do like this vehicle and have debated whether to purchase it at lease end in June. The issue here is what I call "fit & finish" which is terrible. Cheap plastic parts that easily fall off consistently (one by the driver's foot next to console & one by the lower back seat) a console locking pin that breaks easy and keeps you from closing your console cover, the trim around the navigation screen trim which bubbled up around the edges, the key fob battery which quit approximately 1 1/2 years into service. I'll also add in the tires where I constantly deal with tops lights going off probably monthly. So it is an actually well performing vehicle if you can deal with the nuisances of lousy cheap trim.

2016 Mazda cx-5 (basic edition) review.

I love the car, however, I had to lease the basic version of it without all the commodities because it was too expensive to add the additional features I wanted, such as leather seats, heated seats, sunroof, etc. Since leasing it back in 2015 however, I have not had any major issues with the car. It runs beautifully, it is spacious for the most part, it has a nice look to it, and it does well in all types of weather. Tires are quite costly to repair on it but other than that, I have really loved the cx-5 and will absolutely consider a newer one when my current lease is finished. However, if you are looking for more than a basic version, be prepared to spend much more money. It does not automatically come with too many features.

- Julianne M

Pros- spacious, blind spot indicator. Cons- reflective dash, short middle console.

Love the space capacity of this car. Have been able to move furniture quite easily. We traveled a lot and have needed the space this vehicle provides. Seat warmers are great. Hate the middle console for the passenger driver as it is not extended as the drivers side, but this can be compensated by putting passenger seat back further. Some trim work reflects the sun too much and can be distracting when driving/ riding in the car (on front dash). Blind spot indicator is now my favorite feature, very handy and now a non-negotiable for any future car. Have had this car for two years and put many more miles than average and no issues to date. Very satisfied with the car.

The design was based on the Mazda MINAGI. The Mazda CX-5 replaces both the Mazda Tribute and the Mazda CX-7.[14]

The Mazda CX-5[1] is a compact crossover produced by Mazda starting in 2012 for the 2013 model year lineup. It is Mazda's first car featuring the new KODO � Soul of Motion Design language[2] first shown in the Shinari concept vehicle in May 2011.[3] It shares a platform with Mazda3 and Mazda6.[4] It is also the first vehicle featuring the company's full Skyactiv Technology suite, including a rigid, lightweight platform, combined with a new series of efficient engines and transmissions resulting in reduced emissions and fuel consumption. The Skyactiv Engine and Transmission Technologies were first released in the 2012 Mazda3 compact sedan and hatchback.[5]

Mazda cx-5 is safe, reliable, and great on gas.

The vehicle is very reliable. I haven't had any mechanical issues with it, just normal maintenance upkeep. I love all the features my car came with. The blind spot detection is very helpful. I really love the screen size of the back up camera. The whole entertainment interface is really awesome once you get used to how it operates. It has had very good gas mileage, both city and highway driving. Overall, I am very happy with the vehicle. I will say that I am slightly disappointed in the key fob, the battery in it has already died after two years and from what I have read online, they should last about 5 years, but that is my only complaint.

- Elizabeth I

The Bose sound system rocks!

The 2016 Mazda cx5 s design is really nice and sleek. It has a look that is very appealing. The colors are also very nice. The car has a lot of practical features. I love the trunk button. You can open the trunk from your keys and when your done, you push a button and the trunk closes automatically. It also comes with the side mirror sensors. The sound system is Bose and sounds awesome! It is easy to navigate through the cars function. The only thing I wish it had was memory seats. The back seat vents have their own temp control! Perfect when the front people are hot but the back people are cold.

- Jane I

It is a very reliable car, as all of my previous Mazda's have been.

My Mazda CX 5 is a great car. I have had it for over 2 years and have had no problems with it with the exception of a few recalls. I love the blind spot and back up rear view mirror features, I don't know how I drove without them. My one regret is that I didn't get the navigation system. i do wish Mazda would be a little creative with the body design as it seems all midsize SUVs look alike. My car is silver and I can't tell you how many times I have gone to the wrong car. I know I am not the only one who does this as I have seen people confuse my car for theirs.

- Katie B

Cx-5, what’s not to love?

The xx-5 has a lot of pickup for a smaller SUV. I love the screen and navigation system and the Bluetooth option was extremely easy to hook up so I could tale calls while driving and be hands free. One of my favorite feature is the lane change warning signal. There are lights on each mirror that light up to assist with letting you know a vehicle is either in your blind spot and it is not safe to merge, Or that you are too close to them to change lanes. Also, when your blinker is on the system will emit a sound to warn you in addition to the lights on the mirrors.

- Megan Y

It is the basic sport size car for outdoor activities.

The car is the perfect size (not to big nor too small). It is reliable and the performance is great. Bluetooth is linked to my iPhone so calls automatically connect. I have had some issues with the Bluetooth, though, with spotty connection but it will then work fine. Another small thing is that my center panel inside on the passenger side. . The clips broke so the panel just kinda hangs. That upsets me since they said they cannot do anything to fix it. Other than these little things, I love it. Perfect for road trips with family and large dog.

- Jessica R

This is the best car purchase I have made.

I enjoy my vehicle very much! This is the first SUV I have ever owned and I knew Mazda would be a good choice since my family has had several Mazda vehicles in the past. The ride is very smooth and it's easy to drive, meaning I do not feel like it is difficult to turn the steering wheel or anything. It is also very safe and good in all weather conditions, but especially snow. The back up camera is a plus too when parallel parking or backing out. Would definitely recommend this vehicle to anyone in the market for a reliable SUV.

- Allison P

Cx-5 is fun to drive but a bit lacking in backseat space.

I really like driving my Mazda cx-5. It is zippy and cute. It has okay pick-up (zoom zoom), although it is not most pick-up I have had in a small SUV. The ride is fairly smooth but still sporty. The turning radius is nice and tight doe maneuvering smaller spaces. I really appreciate the blind-spot monitoring and backup camera. My primary complaint is the legroom in the back seat. Having a car seat in the back leaves little room for passengers, and my toddler has very little legroom while still riding rear-facing.

- Laura C

Best SUV I have ever owned!

I love my Mazda cx-5 not only because it is reliable but it is fun to drive! It is the perfect size, which makes it very easy to get in and out of tight parking places. Very easy to see above the steering wheel, no matter how short you are. I love the push button start, it saves time having to fumble for your keys. Even on icy roads, the Mazda cx-5 handles well. So far I haven't had any problems with it so I cannot say anything bad about it. I think for the price, it is an excellent deal.

- Elizabeth M

It is very fuel efficient for a near luxury all wheel SUV.

The ease and comfort of driving this near luxury car is made better when you factor in that it is very fuel efficient. I have driven cross country a couple of times utilizing the pre installed navigation system which was a godsend. I have gotten nothing but compliments on the exterior design which was one of the factors in my decision because I love design, but also for the interior size and the fact that even 2 years after purchase it still had a new car smell.

- Javier F

Reliable 2016 Mazda. Like most Mazda vehicles, the cx-5 has great performance.

No problems. Very reliable. Very good on gas per mileage. The 2016 Mazda cx-5 ranking is based on its score within the 2016 affordable compact SUVs category. Currently the Mazda cx-5 has a score of 8. 5 out of 10. The 2016 Mazda cx-5 is one of the highest-ranked and most fun-to-drive compact crossovers in its class. Precise steering and agile handling make up for the cx-5’s modest engine power, while the interior offers good passenger space and solid quality.

- Teresa F

My fifth Mazda lease-satisfied.

I lease my vehicles. This is my fourth Mazda. I have liked them all. This one is okay. I have all ready had to have the brakes replaced and I have less than 15, 000 miles. It is a bit noisy to drive with the windows down. It is reliable. Good in the snow. I have liked the "look" of my other Mazda's a little better. This 2016 model is not as sharp. It is sort of boxy. But over all when my lease comes due again--I will most likely go with another Mazda.

- Jane B

We love the sport detail in the car.

I just bought my Mazda cx 5 recently and I love it. So far no complaints. I get good gas mileage, and very comfortable to ride in. My husband is always wanting to borrow it. We like the rear back up mirror as well. It also has a beeper that goes off if a car gets too close in our blind spot. We had a Kia Sportage, which we liked as well, but my Mazda is a little more comfortable to ride in. We also like the color blue mica. Definitely a good buy.

- Nancy L

Great car with a few nit-picky complaints.

I have not had any problems with the vehicle. It looks nice and handles very well; almost sporty even though it is an SUV. It has a lot of features for the price-heated seats, sunroof, etc. I wish it had apple carplay and I do not particularly like the automatic start-it shuts off when you open the door to the vehicle, which defeats the purpose to some extent in my eyes. I also have had trouble with chase auto, who the lease is financed through.

- Sara B

It has a luxury feel and smooth ride without the luxury price tag!

I love almost everything about my vehicle. It has a luxury feel and smooth ride without the luxury price tag. It is very comfortable and has an amazing sound system. I wish it had an automatic liftgate as I'm short and struggle with reaching it to close it sometimes. Additionally, I wish the cup holders in the center console weren't so far back. Being short makes it harder to reach stuff in the cup holders with ease. Everything else is amazing!

- Marica V

The midnight blue Mazda cx-5.

I absolutely love my car. I have a 2016 Mazda cx-5 midnight blue with white leather seats which make the car look so nice. The only problems that I have are it started to make a beeping noise, but there are no warnings popping up. Even though it does have good gas mileage it is not where I would like it to be at. I would also suggest getting non leather seats. The leather seats seem like they will need to be replaced in the next 2 years.

- Caitlin S

A Mazda cx-5 is the best car for a long road trip.

I have never had any mechanical issues with this car. It runs great and it is easy to change my own oil and filters and whatnot because everything is so easy to access. It gets incredible gas mileage in town as well as on the highway. The interior is comfortable, spacious and functional. The reverse camera is my favorite feature as well as the slapstick manual and sport mode option. The cx-5 is fun to drive and I absolutely love it.

- Sarah J

Mazda is arriving in luxury while key safety features ensure you arrive alive.

I love my Mazda. The ride is smooth, the interior has leather seats and seat warmer for those snowy days. Standard Bluetooth, built in GPS, rear camera and alarm. Warning lights in rear view mirror when a car is to close. Warning alarm if you a drifting into another lane. Passengers has control of the temp that is comfortably to them. Cannot forget cruise control, and to always set it when driving through Georgia.

- Michelle D

Great car for our family!

We love this car for our family. The grand touring is great because we love the leather interior and the heated seats. One negative is that the screen display does not have a scrolling marquee and does not show the full name of the songs playing. It is not a huge deal, but it seems like it was an oversight. The ride is smooth and the car looks very nice. I feel proud of our family for owning this car.

- Sheens W

Overall review of my Mazda cx-5.

The cx-5 is a great family vehicle. There is plenty of room for kids and dogs. The ride is fun yet comfortable. Gas mileage is pretty decent for an all-wheel drive vehicle. I would say it is a very dependable car as I have not had any issues except for the infotainment center. I highly recommend attempting to update it yourself before spending over $160 for a Mazda tech to spend five minutes on it.

- Laura J

The great reviews on the car that I read before purchasing.

I love my car it does great in the snow, for long car rides every person in the car has enough room and is comfortable. There is a lot of space in the cargo area for lot of space for bags and baby gear. It gets great gas mileage in the city for day to day travel. The only issue I have is it seems that the driver side seat seems to be worn out like shows the wear and tear and it is only a year old.

- Haley S

The sport button was fun to have when you need to pull out fast.

I really enjoy the car however I got it when it first came out which came with some recalls down the road. Nothing major but with 2 kids and working makes it a little bothersome to have to go to the dealer for an hour. The car handles great in snow and rain which was nice since my last car was a Subaru. My cx5 was all wheel drive so I highly suggest that if you live in an area with bad winters.

- Jen P

Love vehicle size front wheel drive gas mileage and easy maintenance.

No problems, great performance and reliability. Have two car seats in the back, very comfortable and roomy vehicle. Great gas mileage too. Love the color it's a grey/blue. Opted not to have the backup camera. My sister has an older Mazda and the beeps were rather annoying. Not making long distance runs. Furthest trip was on vacation to jersey shore. Everything worked well with the Mazda.

- Pamela E

Mazda cx-5: built for adventuring.

We have not had any problems with this vehicle. We live in a mountainous area, and are people that enjoy being outdoors and adventuring so it has been great to be able to do this in a car we know we can depend on. It is very comfortable and has great features for us. We also know that if our family gets bigger, we will not need to worry about now having enough space. We love this car!

- Casey M

2016 Mazda cx 5 USA road trip.

Hello all. My 2016 Mazda cx 5. I bought the car brand new with 100k miles on it. Today the car has almost 80k miles on. Knock on wood, I have had no problem with this car yet. Just your occasional tire changes and oil changes and filter changes. Besides that there was no recalls on the vehicle so far. The car has traveled a lot. Long and short distances all over the USA. Car is great.


The interior is big enough for 3 adults and one child in a car seat.

I enjoy the interior of the Mazda CX-5 as well as the information system and how straight forward everything is. I dislike the fact that there is no Apple Carplay. I dislike the small cheap interior pieces and the not to sturdy windshield as it's cracked 3 times in the past year and a half of owning. The vehicle is also severely underpowered and feels as if it struggles going uphill.

- Steve C

Great performance, drives very smoothly. It has a very sporty look and feel.

I love my new car. Great performance. Drives well in rain or snow. I do not like that I do not have a sunroof. This model is a 2016 with no power seats and no blind spot monitoring. I have the sport edition. It has 30. 000 miles on it. I am currently financing. I do have power windows. Terrible gas mileage, about 20 mpg. It is expensive to finance. Perfect brakes, great pickup.

- Amanda R

Mazda cx-5 - the SUV that drives like a car.

It drives like a car but has all the space and convenience of an SUV. I love how easy it is to adjust the seats, move the back seats down, and how it feels when I drive it. The only issue I have is the Bluetooth can be unreliable sometimes, I have issues with it pausing while I am listening to things, and also the USB seems picky about what kind of USB cord works with the car.

- Stephanie F

This car does not get the gas mileage that is advertised on the window sticker. Also, the technology does not work 100% of the time. It averages around 70%.

I like the look of the car and the room it provides for my family as opposed to a smaller vehicle. The car does not reach the gas mileage it advertised, which was a selling point for me. Finally, the technology in cheaper vehicles (Hyundai for example) is light years ahead than the technology in the Mazda CX-5. Next time, I'll buy the Hyundai for less and have a cooler car!

- Amy S

Comfort. It drives smoothly, the turn radius is excellent.

I purchased my car in march 2019, and so far I have had no problems with it. In drives really well and the functions on this car are so nice. I have not tried it in sports mode yet, but intend to soon. I love the rear cameras, the comfort of the seats, the reliability of the car is outstanding. The only complaint I would have is the heaviness of the tailgate when closing it.

- Catherine R

Average driving experience.

The cx-5 is safe and reliable, but I wouldn't buy it again. The cabin of the car is extremely loud. The radio system regularly resets itself, and the thermostat is extremely temperamental. From a service perspective, the service we have received at Mazda facilities is average. I am constantly being up-sold and the synthetic oil is expensive to have changed.

- Ashley F

The car is very stylish and sporty. Very economical and provides an excellent value.

I love my CX-5. It gives me great gas mileage for an SUV at over 30 mpg. It is extremely reliable and is fun to drive. The seats are very comfortable even on longer trips. All of the features are easily accessible to the driver. The vehicle is easy to drive and provides good lines of vision while driving. I would definitely recommend this vehicle.

2016 Mazda cx-5 review: great daily commute vehicle.

No major problems so far, interactive screen is not the best/easiest to use compared to some other cars. Overall drives very well, good traction and control over vehicle. Relatively powerful engine for casual daily driving. Very comfortable seats due to a greater indentation. Quite spacious as well. Can fit 5 adults and plenty of cargo in the trunk.

- Justin D

Gorgeous and safe Mazda cx-5.

I absolutely love my Mazda cx-5. It is reliable and extremely safe. As a mom, I want nothing more then to have the safest care for my family. The leather interior that comes with the grand touring looks amazing and the exterior couldn’t be more eye catching. The drive is so smooth and I love having the feel of a luxury car for a great price!

- Lauren W

Reliable vehicle at lower cost than Honda/Toyota vehicles.

There are a lot of extra features - a rear-viewed screen for safer back up. Also, opening remotely. Easier to open trunk when needed - no need for separate opening. GPS is convenient. CD player is available, though we use a mp3 player. There are holders for cup for both front seats and also back seats. It has a roomy trunk, and safe for kids.

- Se L

Love the car overall, would only suggest small changes.

I don't really have any complaints other than wishing Bluetooth connected to the car quicker. When starting the car my phone takes a while to connect and if I am on the phone there is about a 10-15 second period where the call is dead and we cannot hear or speak to each other. Only other thing is maybe seats could be a tad more comfortable.

- Samantha R

Mazda is roomy and fun drive.

The cx-5 is large but not massive. Everything you need to fit in, will! The interior is comfortable and spacious. I love the smart console, particularly when there is maintenance required. It will alert when regular maintenance, like an oil change, is needed as well as when something unexpected comes up. This car is easy and fun to drive!

- Martha A

Reliable small SUV: Mazda cx-5.

This car is very comfortable. It is a small SUV that has heated car seats. This vehicle has been pretty reliable within the past year of my purchase of it. The only problem that I have with this vehicle is that I thought it was going to save me more gas than it was being advertised for since it is skyactiv. But overall this car is good.

- Tracy J

It has a backup camera. . Love it.

It's a great vehicle, perfect size and easy to drive. Gas mileage is awesome. The interior is nice, and having the extra space in the back is great. The hatch is easy to open an close. Not awkward to lift. The color is so nice, I have the blue gray color. I get a lot of compliments on it. I am so happy to have such a fun SUV to drive.

- Robbie I

Mazdas are very fun to drive, even the soccer mom models.

It's a great sporty crossover. Very roomy, comfortable, and has above average styling. Way more fun to drive than it should be. It would be nice if it had a bit less road noise, and the entertainment system is frustrating to say the least. Overall, it is one of the better cars I've owned and my next car will likely be another Mazda.

- Charles P

Longtime Honda switched to Mazda and loving it.

I love my cx 5. Stylish and functional. Great gas mileage. The seats are very comfortable. And the sound system is awesome. The console controls take some getting used to but I actually like them now. An SUV that handles like a sports car. The cargo space is ample for my needs. We are a family of four who fit inside comfortably.

- Rachael W

Roomy for a compact SUV, and with great gas mileage!

I love the cx-5. It is roomy enough to fit five passengers (or four passengers and a car seat) comfortably, plus still have items in the cargo area. It exceeds my expectations in terms of mpg. Plus, I really enjoy the Bluetooth connection so I can stream music (or directions from google maps) from my phone through the Audio.

- Carrie W

The Mazda CX-5 is a reliable, spacious and looks pretty!

This car has been 100% reliable. It still drives as though it is new, although it is 3 years old and has 35,000+ miles. The only thing that I don't like is that there are no air vents in the backseat so air circulation is a little tough when using AC in the summer. The heat works better than the AC in terms of circulation.

- Jordan E

It handles really well in weather conditions and is fun to drive.

I like the way that it drives and the way that it handles. There are a few things however for the high end version that I find annoying. The main things I dislike are the fact the back does not have an automatic open when every other car of this type does. I also do not like there is no seat memory for the driver seat.

- JT T

Great value for the cost!

2016 Mazda cx-5 is comfortable for driving long distances, although there is not much leg room in the back seat. Long front end/dash which needs to be paid attention to when parking. Base model has a lot of upgrades that you would normally pay more for such as rims (no hubcaps) and touch screen monitor with backup camera.

- Elise P

First Mazda and I love it! Great size for a new SUV driver.

This car has been great I love the drive. I did have some issues with needing my alignment done but that was after it had been driven for about 2 years. This car is the best, it is the perfect size to take my three dogs in the back. I love how it is a crossover and a good car to transition from a sedan to a small SUV.

- Samantha L

Cx 5 is a great vehicle all around.

It is a very comfortable and smooth ride. I love the heated seats when its cold out. Don't have any problems driving in the snow with it. I've owned a cx 5 for five years and haven't had any issues with it at all. When driving through the mountains its handles corners very well and almost feels like a sports car.

Sleek & stylish. Great for road trips or day trips...

My Mazda has been the most reliable and lovely car I have driven. It is comfortable, great on long trips & very versatile. I love everything about it. It is a great family car, easy to drive & great in bad weather. Safe & dependable. The interior is cozy & stylish. Great car for the dogs too!

- Elizabeth A

Dog says- must love Mazda

It's great! I commute over an hour daily for work and my CX-5 gets great gas mileage. I enjoy the smooth, comfortable ride. My passengers always compliment the back row, and my German shepherd loves that the seats fold down so he has lots of room to walk around on car trips. Would definitely buy another!

- Mary K

This vehicle is perfect for families, especially because it is so safe!

The safety features are phenomenal: reverse camera and sensors, side sensors to ensure no cars are in a blind spot when changing lanes, sensors to maintain safe distance when using cruise control, and even a sensor in the front that warns you to brake if a car is suddenly too close to your front bumper.

- Lindsay C

Mom Mazda. Perfect for cool on the go moms.

I love my Mazda. I tell everyone that. I have had it for 2 years now. It gets great gas mileage. Never has performance issues. Perfect size SUV. Not too big, but big enough to fit a good amount of stuff in. I love the back up camera and all the safety features it has for backing up and switching lanes.

- Melissa W

The Mazda cx-5 is amazing.

The Mazda cx-5 is one of the smoothest cars I have ever driven. It has blind-spot sensors which are helpful but do not always work. The rear-view camera is great but always make sure to look around. It has decent gas mileage and the stereo system is good. Comfortable seats and a decent sized trunk.

- Samuel B

Best little crossover SUV I have run across.

Mpg's, comfort and performance have been great. One thing that drives me crazy is the road noise. I understand the problem was addressed on the 2017 models, but I am hoping a different brand of tire will make a difference. I love the technology package and even with the road noise I still love it.

- Rhonda C

White SUV 6 speed, heated seats, Bluetooth capability, great in the snow.

I have not come across any problems with this car yet. It is a smooth ride, reliable, great in the snow, and comfortable. It is a perfect size for me and does surprisingly well on gas considering it is a SUV. It has heated seats, Bluetooth capability and rear view, all which are worth the price.

- Pam R

It's loaded with features, affordable and easy to drive!

The Mazda CX-5 is fun to drive, and has all the comfort features a driver would want, including air conditioning, power driver seat, power windows, cruise control, the list goes on. The seats are comfortable enough for a long drive, and the vehicle is affordable. It's zippy and easy to drive.

- Karen B

Very reliable m, great on gas vehicle.

Very reliable, I love this car! Great on gas and very roomy. Would definitely recommend to a friend. It is a great midsize car. I have the cloth seats which are easy to clean and maintain. Great on gas I do not have to fill up often and have had the card for two years so far with no problems.

- Courtney C

I like the radio and sport button and the fact that it is all wheel drive.

Brakes went out first week of purchase. Worked great since then. Mazda has problems with batteries lasting very long. Last car was a 2014 and had to have it towed 3 times in 14 months. This newer car seems to be better except the dealer was dishonest and sold it to me without checking brakes.

- Jan S

Comfortable SUV with decent gas mileage - makes for a great first SUV.

It has a nice ride and is pretty comfortable for long trips. It also has great features such as the infotainment center which provides maintenance information, mpg information, and others. And it even has decent gas mileage for being an SUV. For being my first SUV, I am pretty happy with it.

- Laura J

It is totally affordable for every household.

I like that it actually needs the cheapest gas. The monthly payment is affordable. It is just a nice car but what I don't like is it does not speed fast enough and when it needs some repair(yellow light turns on ) especially this light(!) It is not clear what is actually wrong with the car.

- Dea S

I think that anyone looking at the vehicle needs to sit in the back seat to confirm there is enough room. We have trouble with our car seat in the back as there isn't much room.

I like the vehicle as a whole. I really like the body style and the dashboard and display. The one thing I do not like is there is not much space for passengers. That is partially due to the size of the vehicle, but wish it was just a bit larger. I also wish it had a higher towing capacity.

- Jared C

It's fun for a lower power but lower price SUV!

It drives well for a compact SUV, especially compared to ones with a comparable price. All of the included features such as NAV work better than expected. There is more road noise than the other vehicles I tried at the time of purchase but I expected that going in. I overall like it a lot.

- Matthew P

It's a safe, fun good looking car to own and drive.

It's a small to midsize SUV. It gets great gas mileage, looks sharp and has lots of good safety features such as blind spot monitoring, backup camera etc. My only complaint is it is a 4 cylinder engine so only occasionally has a hard time speeding up when i'm trying to accelerate quickly.

- Megan C

Safety features are my #1 priority and Mazda did not skimp. Other vehicles charge extra for same features.

Mazda CX-5 is a great size, not too big, not too small. All the safety features were included in the sticker price. It included backup screen with side sensors, blinking and beeping side mirrors and audio safety with built in red light camera warnings. Excellent automobile for the price.

- Connie M

It has not caused us any issues and is super reliable.

I love my vehicle!! It is so reliable and a very good family car. We have taken it on countless number of trips and it has never once caused us any issues. I even had to share my car between three people, so We've raked up a lot of mileage from that but it is still running like a champ!!

- Kristen L

Mazda cx 5 economical and fun!

Car is fun to drive, easy to maintain, and good with gas. Side mirrors light up and emits sound when another car is in my blind spots. I wish the car had sound sensors in the back and the front instead of only rear camera. Carpet mats are difficult to remove dog hair from with a vacuum.

- Beth N

Comfort. Handling. Convenience.

Drives and handles nicely. Pick up is not as quick as I would like. Sport mode helps but uses more gas. Seats are comfortable, may seem hard at first. Leg room adequate for the average person. The cargo space is also adequate. Wish there were additional USB ports in the back cargo area.

- Samantha B

The rearview camera can be super helpful but is also dangerous to only use.

I have experienced no issues with my automobile. It gets fairly good gas mileage, drives unbelievably smoothly, has great vision out of the windows and has comfortable seats. The rearview camera is insanely helpful and it is overall an amazing car. On top of all that it looks good too!

- Bennett B

They hold resale value quite well, so when you find one you want for a good price, jump on it.

It's sporty and stylish. I love the way it looks!! I love the very high gas mileage, generally upwards of 25mpg. I have a standard transmission, so that adds a little "pep" to driving an SUV. My only complaint is that all black SUV's kind of look alike so it's hard to find at the store

- Alicia C

Its mine and it's all paid for.

I like the features in my car and the style of the exterior and interior. However, it does not have vents in the backseat, and it does not pick up as quick as other vehicles I have drive. I previously had a Mazda3, and the feel of the drive was a lot better in the Mazda3 than the cx-5.

- Alyssa H

A great SUV for newer drivers.

Smooth ride that feels like a luxury car, lots of space, great height. Biggest problem I have is that the pickup is slow and it takes a while to speed up. Safety features are also great, dashboard cam is a godsend. Very comfortable, good handling for a new driver. Decent gas mileage.

- Andrea B

Great price, good performance!

I have had no issues with my vehicle since purchased. It is reliable especially in the snow! One issue is the entertainment system. I do not find it intuitive and the GPS system is not perfect though I believe Mazda has since upgraded it! My car looks great and performs even better.

- Heather S

Nice Vehicle With Issues!

Well performing vehicle BUT "fit & finish" is horrible! Had glove box hinge break,bubbling around navigation screen,Interior parts fall off,navigation issues,trouble holding bluetooth pairing. Nice car that NEEDS far better attention to INTERIOR design.Feels cheap and breaks easily.

- Brad S

Sooth drive with lots of space!

Our Mazda has an excellent safety rating, drives smoothly, and has lots of legroom. I did a lot of research before we picked it out, and it is the best safety rating you can get without spending almost twice as much- it is a good value. We love it! It is perfect for our kids, too.

- Austin W

It is very dependable and reliable.

I like that it is bigger than an average care & that it sits higher up. I also like the extra space, and have more cargo room. The only dislike I have is, while the gas mileage is pretty good for a larger vehicle, I do like getting more miles to the gallon that what this provides.

- Melissa S

It fits my personality. Reliable, enough room to store things, and fun to ride.

It's a fun car to drive, with great fuel economy. This is a suit up version, so the add-ons are great. There are a few things that I have issues with... most notably, the windshield. I had to have it replaced within 2 months of owning it, and have had multiple cracks in it since.

- Mike D

It has new technology and it wasn't too expensive.

I like my Mazda CX-5 because it is big enough to put things in it. I also like all the new technology it has. My favorite 2 things about it are the back up camera and the warning when you put your turn signal on that someone is next to you. I really do not have any complaints.

- Pam V

Best car ever! Reliable, dependable, perfect.

I have not had any problems with my car. It runs perfectly and has been a great car! I have done general maintenance such as oil changes and tire rotation, but my care has not needed anything more than that. I would definitely suggest a Mazda to anyone looking for a car to buy.

- Patty H

It is just okay. Not awesome, not awful.

Good performance but it is a 4 cylinder and I have been driving a 6 so it has taken time to get used to. I find it overall to have good gas mileage and drives well. Though it is an SUV, it really is not as roomy as I thought it would be. Back seat is not extremely comfortable.

- Sandra W

Mazda cx-5, affordable sleek + great safety features.

My Mazda has a really luxurious feel for a lower priced compact SUV. The miles per gallon is pretty efficient and I also enjoy the safety features. The safety feature I enjoy most has got to be the blind side warning lights on the side mirrors. It's one sleek beauty, for sure.

- Mia C

The Mazda cx-5 is easy and functional.

Reliable, easy to drive, have never had an issue, although it is relatively new. I like the back up camera, child lock options, minimum blind spots. It is small enough that is comfortable to drive but higher than a sedan and has 4 wheel drive. Easy functions and good reviews.

- Teresa C

I already highlighted that info in the last question.

No problems. Very reliable, has just enough room for trips with a large dog in the back. Phone connects to Bluetooth for hands free calls. Never had any problems, so far. Exterior and interior look good. Drives smoothly. The dealership has been very helpful since my purchase.

- Jess R

The blind spot monitor, and the rain sensor wipers are interesting to me.

I love the Bluetooth features and the Bose radio. I like being able to talk on the phone hands free. No more digging in my purse for my phone. For an SUV it is a fun drive. It has plenty of zip, and handles nicely on corners. I like the fully loaded “bells and whistles”.

- Melanie W

The interior is quiet and roomy and comfortable and easy to use controls.

We like the gas mileage and the interior has a good amount of head and leg room it also is really nice and quiet in the cabin.the only bad thing is the stereo system and navigational system it leaves a lot to be desired needs to have better speakers and more powerful system.

- Fred H

Pros and cons of the Mazda cx 5.

Sport model does not have seat warmers. No sunroof and a lower quality stereo system. There were no cup holders in the back seats and no USB ports to use. The car is very comfortable. Lots of passenger room in back as well. The cargo/trunk. I would purchase this car again.

- Kris M

That a car like this one can look nice, but also be family oriented.

The vehicle is a crossover so I like that it is like a sporty car, but also a family car. It has more space than a normal size car has, which is ideal for my family. I also like that it has good gas mileage, which I prefer for the environment. I love the design of the car.

- Dan P

Mazda cx-5 is comfortable and safe!

The only problem I can think of is that the air pressure light is extra sensitive. Otherwise, I love my Mazda! It is very comfortable and has a huge back end for traveling and packing everything we need including the dog! This car is great for children and feels very safe!

- Abby F

I find the rain sensor windshield wipers interesting.

My Mazda cx-5 is a fun drive. It has plenty of “zip” for an SUV. I love the features it comes with such as Bluetooth. The Bose radio is amazing. The rain sensor windshield wipers are very interesting. I also love the blind spot monitor. It is a very comfortable drive.

- Melanie W

Rear view camera and side mirror lights to warn if a car in your blind spot.

No problems, smooth ride, plenty of trunk space especially when you drop the seats, holds 5 people comfortably,, this is my third Mazda and I drove the other 2 over 200 thousand miles before replacing. Looks nice. I live the design. Not boxy. Designs get better each year.

- Bea H

Mazda CX-5 is a great all-around vehicle. I've had no problems with it.

I LOVE the look of my vehicle. It's really sharp looking. It's comfortable and it performs well. The only complaint that I have is that the air conditioner doesn't do a great job of cooling. You have to put it on a lower temperature than normal in order to stay cool.

- Robin W

Great car for animal lovers with dogs.

Love this car and the reliability. The only issues I have had were that my brakes squeak and I took it in to get checked but nothing is wrong with it. I like the comfort of the seats and my seat warmers. The car drives great and the back seat is big enough for my 3 dogs.

- Sam B

Great ride in all conditions.

The car handles very well in all weather. All wheel drive, 4 cylinder with lots of power. Great clearance from ground to bottom of car (does not bottom out when going up and down steep slopes). Looks great and has Bose sound system. Also, moonroof and navigation system.

- Tania S

Mazda small fun SUV review.

Great, reliable, sporty car with enough room for our small family. No issues so far. Seats are comfortable both in front and back. Air and heating work well. Heated seats are nice for the colder weather. Hatchback is nice and has plenty of room for what we need to haul.

- Breanna R

Mazda brakes squeaking is a problem.

Great mpg but the brakes squeaking it wrong. I have taken it in for service several times and they still will not fix the problem. It started after the car had 7000 miles I checked reviews and many people have had the same problem. Maybe you could address this problem.

- Dana K

Find a good mechanic not associated with the dealership.

My cx5 runs smoothly and has given me few problems in 3 years. The gas mileage is decent but could be better. The worst thing about the car is the dealership. Both local dealers have service centers where I have been treated poorly and have had my concerns brushed off.

- Alan D

2016 cx-5 6 speed manual.

It is a fine vehicle. Nothing fancy. I have had the SUV for 2 years now, only has 23k miles, and already needed to replace the rear brakes and rotors. Wish it had a button on the doors to lock and unlock it. Overall I am happy with it, but not sure I'd buy another one.

- Joanne T

Love comes in the form of a Mazda!

Its reliability is great and very comfortable for long trips. We can carry cargo and passengers with ease. The fuel economy is great as well. We would purchase another cx5 again without any reservations. We share our happiness with our vehicle with family and friends.

- Susie S

My dog got a new car. . . Not me!

So far, I have not had any mechanical issues with my car, which is part of why I love it so much. It drives great and has lots of room for myself and my dog. He can jump to the floor, and then the backseat so he loves it too. The seats are comfy and it rides smoothly.

- Laura H

My great SUV which I love and will keep.

My Mazda is a very good SUV. I get good mileage and it runs very well. I love the red color and black interior. It is fun go drive and looks good on the road. I see many others and lime the looks. What else can I say about a good car. It looks better than other cars.

- Gordon W

My car is very sporty looking yet has a lot of space.

I haven't had any problems with my car at all. It gets great gas mileage and is very reliable. There is plenty of head room as well as foot room and plenty of room in the trunk for groceries. It is not as comfortable for long distances but is great for in town usage.

- Julie H

Warning lights and back up camera make the Mazda's cx-5 a safe vehicle.

The Mazda cx-5 backup camera alerts you when someone/thing is behind you. Side mirrors have a warning light and sounds if a car is next to you or in your blind spot. There is plenty of leg room, spacious, never feel crowded. The Mazda cx-5 is stylish and dependable.

- Sue G

We will be sure we will get together and meet him at noon and get him a ride.

Love the space potential and that it is all wheel drive. We will be sure we can get them tomorrow and then I can meet up at noon if I have time for lunch or something. We will be sure we can get them tomorrow. We will be sure we will get together and get some stuff.

- Nancy C

Mazda gets good reviews. . .

Performance is really good. Has nice pickup. A little loud in the interior though, with road noise. Very nice red color. Interior seating is posh, radio works well. Came with a roof rack for no extra charge. Expansive seating, lights work well, has a backup camera.

- Christine R

There really are no interesting details or highlights.

No problems, it is just too big. I also do not love the color but I needed to get a bigger car for the job at the time and I just took whatever color they had. It is fine to drive and I have gone on a lot of long road trips (ct to WY, ct to la, ct to ga, ct to ms).

- Ashlee T

Great safety vehicle in all kinds of weather.

Love the way it runs. Very smooth, love all the safety alerts. It cools off fast in the summer and heats up fast in the winter. It also drives great in snow and ice. Stereo system is also great. The only problem that I do not like is the GPS is not user friendly.

- Donna K

Quality of the vehicle is very acceptable.

My vehicle has performed very well. I have been having great mileage. It is comfortable to ride in. Does have some outside noise issues. The entertainment system and GPS are adequate. I appreciate the style. The cargo area is quite large for this size of vehicle.

- Dave B

That it rides very smoothly. Comfortable including backseat.

I love the way the vehicle drives. I love the way the vehicle drives but the driver side the front windshield is two slanted in the car is too short meaning when I sit on it I have to raise the seat up because I am an amputee and it does not have a trunk release.

- Gina M

2016 Mazda cx—5: reliable, safe family vehicle.

We have had to replace the transmission and front axle but it was all under warranty. Otherwise it has been a very reliable vehicle. It handles very well in all type of weather and the interior has worn very well. We have otherwise had no issues with the vehicle.

- Kelsey F

Mazda review: summary of 2016 Mazda.

My car is absolutely amazing! It drives so smooth and is very good on gas mileage! Before I had my Mazda, I drove a car so I was scared to drive a mini SUV but it has turned out to be one of the best decisions! It is very spacious, has Bluetooth and touch screen!

- Madison P

This is a great mid-sized SUV!

I love my car. It has great gas mileage and a very roomy trunk and front seat. It drives very smooth and is low maintenance so far. I wish it had rear cup holders and more room in the back seat. I like that the back seats fold down easily for transporting things.

- Brian W

Why consider buying a Mazda.

I haven't had any issues with this vehicle. It drives smooth, the gas mileage is awesome and the stereo system is awesome. The handling is very true and I would definitely recommend anyone who is in the market for a new vehicle to consider the Mazda SUV brands.

- Brandon H

Mazda vehicles are fun to drive and they look stylish

I love my car but I wish it came with all the perks. They need to make cars more affordable with all the perks. I would like it to have a way to open the hatch without touching the hatch and I'd like a navigation system. My car is fun to drive and it is sporty.

- Deborah B

Dependable, safe and enjoyable.

I love my vehicle, the reliability of it, the dependability, driving in bad weather conditions. I also enjoy the safety features such as backup camera and blind spot monitoring. I enjoy the audio system to listen to podcasts, stream music or use for navigation.

- Mar A

It is extremely affordable and for what you pay you are receiving a fantastic vehicle.

I like my vehicle and chose it based on its size and ability to navigate through the snow. I also like how it has enough space in the back to fit a dog kennel. It is a vehicle that I know I can grow a family in and still have enough space. I have no complaints.

- Jessica M

This car is everything I have been looking for. Modern and dependable.

I have had the vehicle for over 3 years now. It is dependable, has needed no repairs thus far. I really enjoy its features, the rear view camera is my favorite. It is very comfortable and spacious. It is a good car if you are considering having a small family.

- Dee K

With mixed city/highway driving, I have averaged approximately 24.5 mpg

My Mazda CX5 is very comfortable, peppy for a 4 cylinder vehicle and is stylish. Although the stereo sounds good, it is difficult to navigate. I have been told that the tires and brakes will need to be replaced soon, even though i only have 21,000 miles on it.

- Philip W

The blind spot monitoring and backup camera. I will never buy another vehicle that does not have this feature.

I like how dependable my vehicle is and it is pretty good on gas. I like the push button to unlock and the feature that doesn't let you lock your keys in your car. I do wish there was more space in the back seat , it's a little snug for my daughters car seat.

- Crystal H

It is incredibly safe and reliable.

Like all the safety features, great options for interior, good gas mileage for the city and highway, it is spacious but not overwhelming. Dislike a few aspects you can tell are cheaply made. A few interior body elements come up easily or do not stay in place.

- Haley H

Cx-5 love the car hate the windshield

Very reliable, very comfortable. Paint tends to scratch very easily and the windshield also cracks easily. I have had to cx-5s and both have had windshield problems which is frustrating because when it breaks you have to replace the whole mobile start unit.

- Dena R

The back-up camera system that it has. It's been very helpful.

I have loved my CX5 since the first day that I drove it off the lot. It's very responsive when driving it, I love the braking system in it and the lane changing warning system in it as well. And let's not forget about the back-up camera! That is a big bonus!

- Barbara M

Brief but to the point. Would buy again.

Just a rattle in the dash that the dealership took care of under warranty. Love the technology that comes in the car for under 35k. Sport mode is fun too, gets great gas mileage and does everything I need it to do. Have take in snow and performed really well.

- Erik B

Why I like my 2016 Mazda cx-5.

I have had no problems with this vehicle. It rides nice. Easy to drive. Gets good gas mileage. Comfortable. Good storage in the back and second seats fold down. I can drive about 300 miles on a tank of gas. The added features make the car a fun car to drive.

- Steve O

It's comfortable and reliable. It drives smoothly and it feels like driving a car.

I love that my car gets good gas mileage. I love that it's a small suv. I have a bad back so it's easy to get in and out of. It has enough room for what I need and I feel like it drives like a car. Gets great gas mileage. I don't really have any complaints.

- Melissa A

2016 cx-5 exceptionally reliable w Bose/moonroof package.

Mazda cx-5 is exceptionally reliable and comfortable. Three years in I have not experienced any issues other than normal maintenance. Very comfortable ride. Purchased Bose/moonroof package and love it. Performance is great and the ride is incredibly smooth.

- Mckenzie D

Fun, family car for travel, work or daily errands.

I love the great size, comfortable and fast car, I have. It is perfect for my family of 4. My kids have enough space for their bikes in the back. If we travel the luggage space is enough for all our luggage. We've had it for 2 years and couldn't be happier.

- Audrey L

Mazda CX-5 is a great vehicle for the price and all that is included.

It drives well in the snow. I love the push button start along with the Mazda app starter button. I love the heated seats, along with the navigation you do not pay for. The only issue I have is the egg smell that seems to be with all the Mazda's i have had.

- Sherry R

Good in gas comfortable to ride in.

No problems just perfect for me reasonably price good service nice color good on gas. Comfortable to ride I really do not know what else to say. I love driving the car. It has room for 5 my puppies can fit in the back. I have had no problems with the Mazda.

- Anne W

The touch screen is really great for making adjustments. It is really innovative.

The car drives smoothly, there are plenty of gadgets including the Bluetooth and touch screen, it is large enough to be comfortable but also not too big. The only real problems do not have to do with the make of the car but the tires lose pressure quickly.

- Ethan T

Awesome small SUV with luxury features.

This is a great car! It gets decent gas mileage. There is room for 5 people to sit comfortably. The ride so smooth. I haven't had any issues with my car. It is a lovely color of blue. There is a large area in the back for hauling whatever I need to carry.

- Gretchen D

Mazda cx-5: the car for life.

I have yet to experience any problem with the car. The cx-5 is stylish and comfortable, with ample space on the inside. Perfect for road trips. Back row of seat drop down for additional space in the event you have a shopping spree. Highly recommended car.

- May D

it's great, feels very safe, blind spot monitors that light up and beep when you're blinking in one direction and there's something in that blind spot

love it! sometimes I wish I could tell which direction I'm traveling (there's no compass, so it never says North south or east, etc.), and the back up camera doesn't beep or make any noise when you're getting close to something. other than that I LOVE IT

- kare t

Love the look of the car and the interior design!!

The car is fun to drive, reliable and good on gas. I am very pleased with all the amenities the car offers. I find it a very smooth drive and the car has great pickup. It has all the features that I love and would recommend this car to potential buyers!

- Christine E

It is both incredibly reliable and really fun to drive.

I have had my car for more than three years. It has been 100% reliable. I also love that it has high safety ratings, is comfortable and is really fun to drive. I particularly like the rear view camera, blind spot monitoring, and built in navigation.

- Jennifer K

Squeaking brakes. They need to change out the brakes with a different brand.

Love the car gets great mpg. Very comfortable to drive lane assist is a plus. GPS take a bit to figure out. After 7000 miles the brake have started to squeak and the dealer has not been able to fix this issue. Other reviewers have had the same problem.

- Dana M

Drive a Mazda and enjoy the ride!

Love the comfortable ride. The car has great pickup. It is very good on gas and mileage. The backup camera is very helpful. The car requires low maintenance and is very dependable. All in all the car is great and I plan on staying with the Mazda brand!

- Tina E

One of the Best Small SUVs

It's a CX-5. I bought it new and really like it so far. I've had it a little over a year with no problems to speak of so far. It has a moonroof and bose speakers. It drives great and isn't much larger than a four door car but has a lot more cargo room.

- Kate V

The wheels and grill are sharp.

I do enjoy the vehicle but the cmu infotainment went out after only having the vehicle for 2 years and the dealership would not fix it. The drive could be a little more smooth but it looks sharp and gas mileage is pretty good. Overall a decent vehicle.

- Bobby C

It is a Mazda and they make fun cars.

Drives great, easy to get around in, easy to handle and park. Fun vehicle. This is my second cx-5 in a row. Sporty looking and treks like a sports car. Comfortable to travel in with good back support. Sometimes to small when needing to carry a lot.

- Sharon T

The most important thing to know about my car is that as long as you drive it responsibly (not speeding or accelerating too quickly) it gets great gas mileage.

I absolutely love my car. It is large enough to accommodate a large group of friends, but fuel efficient enough that I don't feel bad driving it alone. The color is beautiful and it has held up for the few years I have had it. I have no complaints.

- Erin L

A relaxing and smooth ride, you always feel safe driving the CX-5.

I love driving my CX-5 which has not had a single mechanical problem since purchase and gets decent gas mileage. Also, the advanced safety technological features have saved me quite a few times. The one dislike I have is the limited interior space.

- Tracy N

The gas mileage is great for a small family vehicle and the ride is very smooth.

The Mazda CX-5 works perfectly for my family of three. There is enough room for all of us to sit and to still put a lot in the "trunk". The only thing that I dislike about my car is I have black leather seats and they get really hot in the summer.

- Stephanie F

Mazda cx-5 mid level SUV.

Great space, seats 5 comfortably with fold down seats for storage. Gas mileage around 29-33 with all wheel drive. Fun to drive and comfortable. Of its class I felt like it was a happy medium between all the other vehicles and the funnest to drive.

- Karl W

It does NOT have a trunk/tailgate release button, which is VERY STRANGE. I hunted forever for one.

I love my car! I regret not purchasing the LED headlight package and auto-braking system though. There is also a panel that is always getting caught on my pant leg and comes off by my drivers foot, which worries me - might cause an accident.

- Laura C

It is a great car for the price.

My Mazda looks great, handles well in snow and is fun to drive. However, there is some premature wear and tear and the black color shows scratches very easily. I would have gotten a different color and upgraded model if I had to do it again.

- Kate B

It's perfect for a small family, and seems to have had that it mind during its design

I love that it drives like a car, but is higher so you feel like you see a bit more of what is going on. The safety features, and back-up camera are AMAZING! Our year, apparent has squeaky brakes that has no remedy - so that is a dislike.

- Joan G

Feels like a top of the line luxury vehicle

I believe the Mazda CX-5 is a great car, especially for new drivers. The Mazda CX-5 GT comes with everything you could need in a car. It comes with leather seats and GPS, is very comfortable for road trips and definitely worth the buy.

- rachel m

Frequent pit stops but definitely road trip ready.

I really enjoy the way the car drives. The car is very comfortable and does well with long rides. My only complaint is that I wish the gas tank was larger. I feel like I am frequently filling up with gas despite the great gas mileage.

My Mazda cx 5 grand touring

Overall I like my SUV. Good gas mileage easy to drive. What I don't like is passenger seat is manual adjustments. Passengers in the back do not have heated seats. For the cost of vehicles these should have been part of the package

- Jac A

Our car is very reliable, and has been very easy to maintain. Our Mazda dealership has been providing excellent service.

We are very pleased with our Mazda CX-5. Very attractive, very reliable, very comfortable. Our only MINOR issue is the stereo/radio/phone/GPS is hard to use. i.e. it's not very intuitive. So far we have been very pleased.

- Rob c

It is very spacious, comfortable and is not very costly in gas consumption.

No complaints. Vehicle is very good to drive during harsh conditions such as snow and rain. It is also comfortable and spacious. It does not consume a lot of either. I hope to continue driving this vehicle for many years.

- Jessica O

Perfect size for my family.

My Mazda cx-5 is a great size for my family. It fits my daughter's car seat well and has great storage space in the back. It has leather heated seats which is nice in cold weather. I also love having navigation built in.

- Ann B

It is a safe, cost efficient alternative to a sedan.

I like how it handles in snow and wet conditions. I like the "cockpit" features and their easy access. I like the color. I wish my model came with leather seats. I especially like the functionality of the cruise control.

- Bob A

That it handles well, not as stiff as other SUVs and is fun to drive.

The car has a smooth ride and handles well, particularly for an SUV. It fits my entire family and has the amenities we were looking for (backup camera, etc). The only thing I would want is the foot tap to open the trunk.

- Nicholas g

It drives smoothly, great on gas, plenty of storage space.

I like my car because it has the notification system if someone is behind you or next to the car. I do not care for the set up of the radio. I feel it is distracting if you want to change a station when you are driving.

- Linda G

I feel very safe and comfortable when driving my car.

It is reliable, comfortable and fun to drive. I love the rear view camera. It makes backing up easy and safe. I wish it had the automatic hatch opener, but that was an extra cost and minor in regards to complaints.

- Christine Z

It is been a good investment.

It drives super smoothly compared to other cars I've driven. I have the touring and it has many great features. I have a gaps in my car and premium seats but my only complaint is there isn't a built in garage opener.

- Sara A

Mazda cx-5 is my dream car.

There is nothing I do not like about this car! I've had 3 cars and this is my favorite! Its drives smoothly, has great traction for rain/snow. Gas mileage is decent and the interior has everything I need and want!

- Rebekah B

It gets really good gas mileage for a car It's size. A few years back I had a different SUV with really bad gas consumption compared to this Mazda. I was pleasantly surprised after buying it that I only fill up every 8 or 9 days.

I love my Mazda CX-5. It's fun to drive and includes some really great safety features. One of my favorites is the sensor that tells me when someone is either in my blind spot or behind my car as I'm backing up.

- Joanne C

Wonderful car. The family loves it.

This car rides very smooth and feels safe. The only real issue I've had is with the navigation screen. Sometimes it locks up and I have to hit the Home button then go back to the navigation screen. Like a reboot.

- Jan H

It is lots of fun to drive.

It handles well, It has lots of safety features, rear view camera, blind spot alerts. in my lane alerts. Th vehicle has lots of room for passengers and anything else I want to carry. It handles ice and snow well.

- peggy s

Excellent mileage with a fun drive feel.

The vehicles is roomy and has a well designed interior. The engine has enough power without being an A6 and thus has very good gas mileage. The interior is more black and as such can be quite hot in the summer.

- Bill S

It has great value for the gas mileage and drives well in the snow.

It had great gas mileage and is a smooth ride. I love the backup camera and Bluetooth. I have a personal phone and work phone so I wish I could use Bluetooth for birth at the same time without having to switch.

- Stephanie E

The Mazda SUVs are great starter family cars.

My vehicle drives more like a car than an suv which is great. Has sport mode which is my favorite feature. The volume button is right next to you so you don't have to take your eyes off the road. Great in snow.

- Chelsea T

It is not too big, not too small. It is the perfect size for an Urban Adventurer.

This vehicle has good gas mileage. It also has higher clearance than cars. The storage in the vehicle is spacious. And it is very easy to maintain and keep working. No complaints so far with this vehicle.

- Brett W

Best car that is affordable.

Drives really smoothly, love the blind spot monitoring, nothing has broken down, comfort is really good, the only thing I do not like is that you cannot touch the screen as you drive but if you stop it works.

- Corinne H

Fun to drive, but if you are looking for satellite radio, you are out of luck. You will need to purchase an external unit. And what current car doesn't have automatic headlights in this day and age?

I love driving it but there are some annoying quirks. There are no automatic headlights; the radio never turns off - you can only mute it; there is a space for satellite radio but Mazda does not support it.

- Carolyn S

This car also has a sunroof, which is awesome.

I like the visibility I have. The way it drives is very smooth. I love that I have a backup camera. And with the middle version I still have heated seats, even though they are cloth. I have no dislikes yet.

- Megan C

Safe, comfortable, and fun to drive.

Drivability and comfort are maxed out with the Mazda cx-5. The sport mode allows for easy highway access, the infotainment center is intuitive and packed full of features. Cannot recommend this car enough.

- Kirsten T

The mid-sized Mazda CX-5 is a great value for the money.

I love that it has enough space for the family but is still small enough to get fairly good gas mileage. It is safe and has blind spot detection which I love on the highways. It is sporty and fun to drive.

- Misty D

It's fun to drive, comfortable, and trustworthy too.

I love this car. It's quick, has a good turning radius, and gets decent gas mileage. It's big enough for my family of 3 to go on trips like camping, but still small enough to parallel park in the city.

- Shannon K

It drives nicer than it look. Also, it might be more expensive than you expected.

I like how it drives and how it handle the curves when turning. The only complaint I have is it doesn't have heated steering wheels. I like the white seat covers. It was more expensive than I expected.

- Minh P

Stellar safety ratings, good snow performance.

I especially love how well it performs in the safety category as well as how it travels in the snow. I do not like the navigation display but that is a minor issue. I truly love everything else about it.

- Laura S

Mazdas are for people who like to really be in control of their car.

I love the color.. I love the tight steering.. I love the size.. But I wish it had a sunroof though.. I do not like the size of the backup camera display because it interferes with my view of the road..

- Marie O

It is a fantastic family car. We can load everything in it for a weekend get away and still remain safe!

I have not had any problems with my CX-5. I love that I have all of the safety features of a much more expensive car and the appearance of the mazda is lovely. Also, the infotainment system is fantastic

- Heather B

Mazda cx 5 is Reliable, nice looking and affordable

I love how reliable the car is, love the features like heated seats, leather interior, all the bells and whistles. Only complaint is it can be a little underpowered but I call it my luxury mobile. :-D

- eva f

Compact SUV without compromising space with a smooth drive.

I like the aesthetics of the car, very attractive. I enjoy how it drives. I enjoy the setup of the inside, where everything is placed. I like that it is a smaller SUV but still have plenty of legroom.

- Nicole M

It is great on miles and is a wonderful compromise between an SUV and car.

It was the first crossover vehicle I had and I absolutely loved the transition from the car. It is a good looking vehicle, very modern, with modern features such as backup camera and bluetooth, etc.

- Jon N

It is full featured & is much less expensive than similarly featured cars.

I love the way it drives, it is safety features, the driver assist features and the way it looks. I do not like that the side mirrors do not fold down to accommodate tight spaces like city parking.

- Nicole C

It is a very safe and economical vehicle to drive and to maintain.

The car feels very safe. It is quiet and drives more like a car than a truck. I love the back up camera and the signals on the side view mirrors that notify me when someone is in my blind spot.

- sandy t

It's a smooth ride but with a slight slower pickup.

I love the city assist brake feature. I love the interior as everything feels like it's in the right place. I dislike the sound the truck makes when the air conditioner is on, makes it sound old.

- Lela M

It's comfy and the features are awesome. It has monitor when you are backing up or it beeps when there is a car on your blindspot

I love the size and the design itself. I enjoy listening to music with bose speaker. What I don't like about my vehicle I have to open manually the trunk to put my groceries or things in there.

- maricris f

Reliable and no-fuss vehicle, with some tech, but not a lot of extras.

The vehicle is reliable and low-maintenance. I feel that for its size it could have better fuel economy. It also isn't necessarily "fun" to drive. Solid vehicle, some tech, not a lot of frills.

- Matt H

I love that it has a GPS and the speed limit shown on the car.

The center console just broke, but the good thing was it was under warranty. The warranty for Mazda is 3 year/36,000 miles which I would like a better longer warranty, since I drive a lot.

- Angela K

I love my Mazda CX-5! I purchased it used back in December since I was moving to Maryland and needed a car. I love that it is high above the ground, but yet not too big. It drives so smoothly, is great on gas and has nice features! I always feel so safe in this car!.

It is still very spacious for a smaller size sedan and I was able to pack all my belongs in it when I moved. The seats in the back fold down so it gives you more room to to pack your car!

- kelly i

My car is the perfect size, very versatile, and fun to drive!

My Mazda is a great car that I really enjoy driving. It's cute, feminine but not too girly, and just the right size. It also does great on dirt roads and in the wilderness for car camping!

- Michelle J

The safety features which includes the mirror sensors.

It has get up and go and is very reliable. The mirror sensors are a great safety feature. What I dislike is the cloth on the seats. I've noticed they seem to be stretching out somewhat.

- Tamela S

It is my car, and the color is exactly what I wanted.

I love that it rides high because I feel very safe. It is a sturdy and reliable car. The only thing I do not like is that my weather stripping along the top of car falls off all the time.

- Brooke C

It is very spacious inside.

I absolutely love my car. It is very spacious inside and perfect for a family of any size. The seats are comfy and the features are great. I have had great experiences with Mazda overall.

- Ashley W

It's a manual transmission. The sound system is very nice for a base model.

I love driving a manual transmission. It's one of the few compact SUVs available in standard transmission. I also love the style. It's a safe vehicle and the interior is very comfortable.

- Nicole W

Cool looking crossover for a great deal but be wary of the interior fit and finish.

Great size, gas mileage, and aesthetics. I like that it carries a good amount of cargo and has a hitch for a bike rack. Costs were cut in the interior finishes and parts which seem cheap.

- Tyler P

Great vehicle for a reasonable price.

I really love this vehicle. It is great on gas and drives well. What I do not like is how it has a dip when you get in and out of the car and the blind spot on the passenger side mirror.

- Sonia S

Good engine and technology used in to build it spacious leg room

Enjoy the built navigation with screen on the front glass helps me where exactly to make turns and especially with stop signs without looking but seat belts on the back seat irritates me

- Jyostna T

That the fuel efficiency is wonderful. The rear baggage compartment is very acceptable for this size of vehicle.

I dislike the fact that there is no air conditioning in the passenger compartment. I like that the fuel mileage is excellent. I do wish that the beverage holders in the front was better.

- David B

The most important thing is that it is a reliable SUV.

It is very easy to drive, it has great pick up, it is spacious, has comfortable seats, and looks sporty. It is pretty great on gas and is a very reliable car that I enjoy driving often.

- Megan B

It looks good and drives great. It's a great all weather vehicle for hauling both people and all the stuff that goes along with them.

I like how I can haul everything I need to in this car. I also like how both the front and back are just as comfortable to sit in. I also like that I can fold the seats down as needed.

- Stephanie R

The car drives great in the snow, sleet, or otherwise hazardous weather.

Love how compact yet how large the vehicle feels. Like how the steering is and how the vehicle drives so smoothly. I like the gas mileage provided by the car, even though it is an SUV.

- John M

The sport SUV that encompasses ease and comfort.

The Mazda CX-5 is a the perfect size for someone looking to have a small SUV. It is easy to drive, looks sharp and has many options for technology depending on the package of the car.

- Whitney B

Nice ride! Great size! Great on gas! Comfortable for the whole family. Trunk space is spacious.

I like the size of the car. It rides nicely. I don't like that parts of the car fell off in the first year. I think it was the cold weather and the pegs that attach items to the car.

- Junell B

Mazda CX-5 great vehicle great gas mileage.

I love the dashboard in the vehicle. It gets great gas mileage and drives well. I wish it was a bit more powerful and had a higher towing capacity but overall a great vehicle so far.

- Jared A

The most important thing that I would want people to know is that it is great value for the price.

Back seat is small with car seats, arm rest is worn out, piece falls off by passenger feet, good gas mileage, excellent commuter, comfortable seats, easy to clean, good back storage.

- Ashley S

The car has a very sporty feel which makes driving this car fun to drive

I love that it's so roomy on the inside its plenty of room for myself & my daughter. The only thing i don't like is the stereo integration with my phone. I wish it had apple carplay

- Amanda G

Big on handling itself in the snow.

I purchased my Cx-5 because I needed an all wheel drive option for winter driving but I did not want a big suv. CX-5 is a perfect compromise in performance on snowy roads and size.

- Klaudia L

It is a good car with a lot to offer.

It is a smooth ride, comfortable with a lot of space. Sometimes the screen does not always stare which song is playing on the radio. Some of the features do not make sense either.

- Allison C

Mazda cx 5. My first SUV. I love all the futures on it

Love my car. I used to drive a compact car. It is easy to get into just the right level. Love the futures on it. Hands free talk navigation system, automatic lock ,keys free ,....

- Sabrina P

The Mazda CX-5 is a reliable car and I haven't had any major issues with it so far!

Very reliable. I haven't had any issues with it. Great in snow. Comfortable interior. The only thing is that it doesn't have much power and I have to floor it for it to take off.

- Ariel R

The blind spot sensor is amazing.

I really like the backup camera and the blind side alert. I really enjoy the setup/layout of the car, it feels very roomy. I do not have any complaints at all about my vehicle.

- Jessica L

Love the blind spot and cross traffic monitoring

The Mazda CX-5 feels like a luxury vehicle. I love the blind spot monitoring, back up camera, and cross traffic monitoring. The red color is vivid and it sparkles in the sun.

- Hayley G

Just the right size compact SUV.

Back seat does not have a lot of room especially with car seats, with infant carrier the front seat has to be pushed so far forward the passengers knees are in the glove box.

- Alyssa W

It is modern and safe. The body of the car is very sheek but the features inside make it better.

I like the body of the vehicle, very sheek but safe and study. I also enjoy the color and features of the car inside such as the backup camera and ways to connect your phone.

- John N

Safety features including a back up camera, blind spot monitoring and alarms.

It is easy to drive, reliable and had safety features that I wanted. If I could change anything, I would like the back door to swing open from the side, rather than lift up.

- Laurel B

The car is very cost effective to own compared to others in the market.

I love my CX-5! It is such a nice vehicle to drive. When driving, the seats are comfortable and the ride is smooth. My favorite part of the CX-5 is the sound system though.

- Lisa L

Crossover that is the size of a small car, so it's still easy to get around in but has lots of space and sits up high for a more comfortable ride.

My Mazda CX-5 has been great! I bought it used but it had a Certified Pre-Owned warranty on it. It's gotten great gas mileage and is comfortable to drive in. No complaints.

- Michelle H

Mazda drives like pure liquid

I like my car very much because it drives smooth. I love that it has a sport feature to step up the speed. I like how there is a computer system. The sound could be better.

- Evan C

Good Everyday Vehicle With Enough Room

I really like the interior of the vehicle; leather seats, navigation, sunroof. The car handles nicely however the engine is a little weak and does not have a lot of pickup.

- David A

The vehicle has been very reliable. There have two minor recalls, but, otherwise, we have had no issues.

Our Mazda CX 5 drives well, and it is comfortable on the road. The back up camera is very useful. My one complaint is the stereo system which is unnecessarily complicated.

- Amanda N

Mazda's have great longevity if your the type who likes to keep their cats for many years

I like the way it handles in all types of weather. I like the way the car looks . I find the radio/gps dials are not easy to use while driving. Mileage could be better

- Mindi S

The fact that it drives like a car.

Drives like a car but with more room. It also has good gas mileage. I like that it is small and compact enough for easy parallel parking but has lots of room for storage.

- Rebecca M

The ride is very smooth. It is loud when it starts, but settles down when driving.

The CX-5 is the perfect sized car for me. It has been great while moving because there is so much space. My one complaint is that the windshield wipers are not the best.

- Christine A

My car is fun and easy to drive. Great for a family, college student, or new driver

I really enjoy the navigation and backup camera as well as the blind spot monitors. Sometimes the cabin noise is loud, which I dislike. Overall, I enjoy how it drives.

- Jen N

It is a good investment in a car, but know that there may be some work needed.

The transmission is a bit slow to change gears and "get up and go" even after having it replaced. But, it has a lot of room and I feel like it is a good reliable care.

- James S

Great value, well equity inside and the safety ratings are top notch

Wonderful vehicle with great gas mileage. The backseat is lacking leg room and can be uncomfortable for long distance travel. I love it as a daily driver around town.

- Stephanie P

Great suv recommend to anyone

Love my vehicle it has plenty of room in rear for carrying lots of items.easy access to put items in rear and remove .smooth ride like the room in front with storage.

- Kathy F

It's a dream to drive. Love the auto cruise control. Love this car.

I wish that it had the auto liftgate feature. I hate that it doesn't come with auto-start standard. I wish it had auto-windows for both the driver and passenger side.

- Ashley H

It handles great in the snow which is very important to me so if someone is looking for that capability in a vehicle, mine is a great option.

I love my vehicle! It handles great in the snow and looks sleek! My only dislike is the NAV. It is not user friendly and seems outdated for the year of the vehicle.

- Dustin Z

Good looking SUV - great on gas

I love the style of the car, it's good looking. Not crazy about the leg room in the back. It's a tight squeeze if you have long legs. Runs smooth and great on gas.

- Alise W

Reliable, easy to drive small SUV.

No exact problems. Just drives too much like a 4 cylinder car and had limited power. Decent gas mileage and overall reliable. Not very comfortable for long drives.

- Sandra W

It is paid for. It is a great survival vehicle.

I'd like a little more trunk room. I like having usb ports, aux cables connects to stream my own music. Hands free system is horrible. Will not sync with my phone.

- Amy K

Reliable and safe, many safety features.

It has AWD. It is comfortable. I am short, and can see well out of it. Is has nice features. Had to turn headrests backwards so they didn't push our heads forward.

The CX-5 is comfortable and reliable. It goes over 350 miles on a 12-gallon tank, which is great for the crossover size of the vehicle. It's sturdy and well made.

- Aidan S

I think people need to know about all the safety features Mazda has.

Like all the safety features as well as the sunroof. I have no complaints with my vehicle. This is my second Mazda and I believe I will continue to own Mazda's.

- Terri H

It is reliable in multiple weather conditions but it can get a little confusing to figure out what all of the buttons do

I like having a smaller SUV. I like that it does well in the snow and dirt. I don't like that you can feel how windy it is when driving, it's like an air bubble

- Sydney M

The car gets good mileage and has keyless entry.

It hesitates a little bit while trying to merge on the freeway. It has a backup camera that is great when you parked in a shopping mall. It gets great mileage.

- Claudia L

My vehicle is roomy and a smooth ride and something I can use for my entire family.

I love that it is great on gas. I have had problems with the original tires and getting flats very often. I love how easy my car drives and how spacious it is.

All wheel drive is excellent. Safety features are beneficial, including lane monitoring and blind spot monitoring. Smooth drive, good pick up, no complaints.

- Dana H

It is a great SUV, the right size for a coupe, not a great size for a family.

Black interior and I wish hatch window opened. The black shows everything. The window opening would be handy to put things in and hang longer things out of.

- Patricia C

It is a very reliable car and quite simple to drive

It is a SUV that is gas friendly and roomy for bigger items. It's headlights are slightly dim around corners but has smooth handling and is a quiet drive.

- Soc D

Fuel efficient and sporty. Nowadays people are looking for cars with better gas mileage, but the problem is is that the fuel efficient cars are too small and ugly. This car is beautiful and sporty!

I LOVE my car! I love everything about it. I feel so safe. It's fuel efficient and sporty! The only thing I dislike is the USB ports are not strong enough.

- Jessie L

It handles well and is a reliable suv for those that are looking for that type of vehicle.

Safe reliable vehicle but am not happy with the current gas mileage. Only getting 24 mpg which is lower than other people that I know have the same vehicle

- Joe O

It's very reliable and I don't feel unsafe or like it's going to nickel and dime me.

My vehicle looks great and drives great. It's very smooth and sleek. I like the black interior but it does look dirty very fast so I'm always vacuuming it.

- Stevie B

fun to drive but needs a little improvement

my car has many features that i like but a few that needs improvement. the red light warning is very annoying and the navigation system is difficult to use

- carolyn p

Like the electric seats and easy console controls

performance is great, reliability spot on perfect, and the comfort could be better, due to the fact with having a child in the vehicle (space is limited).

I think the main thing is it is very comfortable to ride in.

I love the color, red, and It's a very smooth and comfortable ride and has a lot of pickup and go to it. It's also a little sporty looking which I like.

It is a great family vehicle.

It is not as big as other SUVs. Which is one of the things I love about it. But, still fit 7 adults comfortably. Smooth ride. Multiple charger plugs.

- Dana G

Does not have a lot of space.

I previously had cars from another maker, which was better than the one I have currently. Not enough room for multiple car seats in the back row.

- Winnie N

Good mpg even around town.

I love the sizzle, ease of flattening back seats, durability, back up camera, and mpg. I was happy I could get it with dog lights and a sunroof.

- Abbey E

We loaded it up with virtually every option available, but still believe it's a great value for the price.

Zero problems with the car. Decent mileage for an SUV. Nice safety features. No the smoothest ride, but it's an SUV so you have to expect that.

great suv crossover that is great on gas

I have had the vehicle for 2 years now. I have not had any trouble with it. It is peppy and comfortable. It also is great with gas.


It is a very safe vehicle - that is the main reason I purchased it.

Like the color and sportiness of the vehicle.. Like the great gas mileage.. Do not like that it does not have an auto dimming mirror.

I love my Soul Red Mazda CX-5

I love my Mazda CX-5. It gets great gas mileage for being an SUV. I like the self-locking locks, especially when my hands are full!

Stylish, fun and reliable vehicle.

Very stable vehicle. Doesn't break down (So far) and runs smooth. Great style in my opinion and comfortable while still being useful.

Mazda’s are very low maintenance and last a long time.

I love the technology features. My Mazda runs smoothly. It is like a luxury vehicle without the luxury vehicle price. Love the color.

It is absolutely the best car I have ever had! Perfect for me.

Love the color, style and ease of use. It is dependable! The gas mileage is great! Needs usb ports for charging in the back seat.


The cost at less than $30,000 is reasonable.

Love it. Really no complaints.. There is a glare on the side back view mirrors from the silver mental on the air vents in the car..
