Engine Oil Bad Issue

If you use your car on 15 min trip, don’t buy it!! Mazda technicians say it is normal for Mazda have a high oil level if you don’t do long trips everyday. I see as a very bad issue, but they say it’s the way it is. So think twice before taking your car to service every 4 months to fix what they call normal! It’s very annoying, frustrating and a complete waste of time, once your warranty runs off, you’ll be paying it from your own pocket! Show details

Love it

Traded in a car we were having ongoing issues with. We've never owned a brand new car, but had heard good things about the Mazda CX-5, and the price seemed good, so we went for it.

So glad we did!

It feels great to drive. Low noise and handles like a dream. The touch screen takes a little getting used to (as you can't use it while the car is in motion) - and we're not great at reading the big manual that comes with things - so we worked it out ourselves. It's great.

It’s easy to see why these cars are so popular. Roomy inside, nice finishes throughout, easy to drive and just reliable as all heck. Show details

Awful

All of the Mazda CX5 have a bowed dashboard. It has a large gap where it it not joined properly. It is an obvious ugly fault and gives me anxiety every single time I get in it to drive it. Mazda have refused to fix it stating it is a mass produced car and nothing can be done. 58k for a terrible interior finish. It looks awful and broken. Not happy. Would not recommend. Show details

Close to Perfect

2.0 litre 6 speed manual has done over 130,000 kms with little to no issues at all, very reliable, power is not a problem driving around the city and the 6 speed gearbox is great on the country roads, mechanic loves my petrol power car and after each service there are no problems. Show details

Practical SUV while still being fun to drive

Recently purchased my CX-5 Maxx Sport, after test driving 3 other popular medium SUVS. I found the CX-5 to have the best designed interior, best build quality, and to be the nicest to drive. My commute to work is 85kms each way and the CX-5 eats up the hwy and is nice to drive around town, I’m getting great fuel economy, it varies between 6.4-7l/100kms, while being comfortable, quiet and refined on the hwy. The thing I preferred most with the CX-5 over the competition is that it has a 6 speed auto rather than a CVT. I much prefer a regular auto transmission. I’m very impressed with it so far. Show details

I recently changed the vacuum pump on my mazda CX-5 2015 diesel AWD and after that the consumption looked like it's going back to normal. But at a moment, everytime after I start the engine, the consumption suddenly increases... Why is that happening?

The Akera model, which front Brake calipers does it have, Sumitomo Calipers or Akebono Calipers?

Front seat headrests are not adjustable except for up and down. This means my wife who is smaller than I has her head uncomfortably pushed forward or just can't use the head rest. A very poor design. The rest of the car is fantastic itself tho.
