Mazda CX-5 buyer beware

published

My partners car Mazda CX-5 2016 KE 11. Regularly serviced by Mazda Penrith, 154,000 klms, 6 months out of warranty. Blown head gasket. Original owner. Will never buy another Mazda. Nil response from Mazda.Paid $48,000. Air bubbles in the videos are exhaust gases pushing thru into coolant, dirty brown coolant is exhaust gas contamination.

Mid 2021 Akera 140Kw/450Nm AWD 6 speed auto

published

My work car doing over 20k a year. Always perfect no matter the road conditions (80% bitumen/20% outback dirt). Never short on power whatever the circumstances. Highway under 5l/100km, average since bought spot on the 5.7l/100 indicated. Larger alloys on the Akera can be a bit harsh on rougher roads but certainly no worse than my previous Lexus NX (Mazda has all the same nice touches without the higher purchase cost or service fees - besides the NX still rides on the Rav4 platform). Auto braking can be a pain in the neck though as I've had a few false calls... however the auto cruise control matching the car in front and keeping distance is awesome. Will buy again.

Purchased in at Mazda Dealers for $54,000.

Mazda will not honour warranty

published

We bought a brand new 2020 CX-5 GT, and this clear plastic started cracking almost immediately. The dealership says you won’t cover it on warranty. Was told by mechanic at dealership that it had been happening to cars often.

Beware of this company!

published

Whilst the product has been good and generally problem free, once it failed Mazda Australia quickly washed their hands of the matter offering zero support, no discussion. Has made no difference that we are 15+ year customers and vehicle has a Mazda only service history.

Purchased in for $45,000.

Buyer Beware!

published

Beware Mazda do not honor the warranty you receive when you buy a new vehicle from them, they pick and choose what they want to cover note: don't rest your arm on the arm rest because if it cracks and caves in they will not replace it under warranty, truly poor quality cheap plastics used. High priced vehicle with sub standard quality in various areas of this vehicle, they ignore you hoping you and the problem go away. Well I will be going away....I won't buy another Mazda ever !

Good car but would prefer my old Honda crv

published

Recently had my car driven into a pole by family member and needed to get another car quickly as insurance only paid for several days. I looked for a used crv but could not find one at the time.
Bought a 2016 Mazda CX5. The car is quite good but has this istop feature that I cannot turn off most of the time and the icon flashes all the time., very distracting. Pretty happy other than that, (except that I brought a dark blue one and it gets extremely hot) just was quite attached to the old white car.

Great vehicle - but for road noise

published

Two vehicle couple (other vehicle is VW Touareg), we have owned this vehicle since new in 2015. Great car, smooth, gutsy, good road manners, reliable, diesel engine is economical (consistently 6/100 on country trip, 8/100 around town), good technology (but not as good as VW Touarag, our other car), roomy (friends late model Rav4 is much bigger inside) reliable, great Bose sound system, cheap to run. Only criticisms are noticeable road noise on open road and terrible headlights (like most Japanese cars).

Purchased in for $52,000.
