I have been a Mazda owner for many years, from the 626 to the Miata (two), to the Tribute and now my beautiful new CX-5.

20 May

but i hate the transmission.

21 Mar

The Mazda bucked at low speed in city driving and the automatic transmission whined in gears 1-3 at low speed.

1 Aug

First, the engine / transmission combo is barely adequate.

19 Jul

For others, the acceleration and shifting issues may cause some hesitation.

1 Feb

Concealed engine and transmission problems on brand new Cx 5 Mazda lie and have not repaired.

26 Jan

the shifting by this automatic transmission is so smooth you have to put window down so you can hear the engine to even detect it.

28 Jul

It is nice because I am coming from a cvt transmission that I don't like its a Corolla.

15 Jul

I will be taking it back to see if they can reset the transmission.

3 Jul

Very jerky during shifting which seems to be all the time.

16 Jan

But the shift points are crazy high.

1 Jan

Finally dealership maintenance advisors don’t seem to be up to speed on the meaning of failures/posted codes.

1 Jun

Engine failed and Mazda replaced the intake manifold.

1 Feb

Bad deal Mazda’s they have transmissions fail a lot on new cars.

24 Oct

N/A

1 Oct

Mazda asked the dealer to perform a software issue which failed to rectify the problem.

3 Feb

but I suspect better tires could bring road noise in the cabin down even further.

1 Jan

Engine noise is excessive under the most conservative driving conditions.

19 Sep

One complaint - the factory equipped tires are noisy.

22 Jan

All safety features or warning can be changed to sounds, vibrations or off.

16 Jan

Go with a Honda and Toyota at least they won't tell you they built the car to make noise when you have a passenger in it.

6 Jan

The engine is more efficient; I recently got 32 miles per gallon on a road trip, and that given the car is heavier due to additional noise insulation.

11 Oct

Very little road noise.

22 Aug

The road noise is very low.

18 Aug

These tires are so noisy that on a very uneven road, you cannot even hear the radio.

6 Jul

After doing research and driving my wife's CX3 I decided to trade in my noisy rattling 2015 RAV4.

23 Mar

Cylinder deactivation technology doesn't creates enough oil pressure, or algorithm of light is wrong.

12 Feb

PROS: STYLING, INTERIOR STYLE AND QUALITY, AWD, BOSE, DRIVE CONS: MISSING SLIDING HAND REST, AUTOSTART, STEERING ASSIST, NO TIRE PRESSURE GUAGE.

23 Jul

Also, I realize I can't check the tire pressure from inside the car? Why?

3 Feb

The only disappointment so far is the Yokohama Geolander tires that are not well rated.

20 Jan

There is really not much to say wrong with this car see the gas tank is only 12 gal.

7 Dec

my only complaints are the very small gas tank and the engine is slightly under powered.

7 Dec

my only complaints are the very small gas tank and the engine is slightly under powered.

2 Nov

Cons: so, so fuel economy, smallish fuel tank, Small cargo area and generally lack of storage since all the storage areas are not very big.

24 Jul

I'm not sure if it eats up gas or the gas tank is smaller than my Rav4 was,

3 Feb

The only disappointment so far is the Yokohama Geolander tires that are not well rated.

11 Sep

oh, by the way, the oem geolander tires were god awful, and expensive to replace.

26 Mar

If one is looking for a soft ride, this isn't the right choice as the low profile tires and sporty suspension give a lot of road feel.

20 Jan

but there needs to be more views to it like the tire pressure of each wheel or the navigation steps.

2 Jul

I wish the driver’s seat would move a few more inches back ( I’m 6’2”), and it has older style tire pressure monitors that just tell you if a tire is low (as opposed to showing you the exact pressure in each tire).

3 May

Cons: tires (run flat) a bit noisy, seats could be a bit more comfortable, and the radio controls could be a bit more intuitive. All in all, I love my new car :)

22 Apr

AC vents are too high to effectively cool the passenger cabin.Front seats are not adjustable to provide comfortable ride.

29 Mar

The heated sets are great my only complaint is the heating and cooling system very hard to figure very backwards and and put very low hard to use.

25 Jan

I am driving a 2017 CX5 and I like it very much,It does almost everything very well, the only real problem I have is the fact that in very cold temps the engine does not warm up to operating temp correctly.

17 Nov

Climate is traditional dials and the vents are at body level (not eyeball drying level) and the display for stereo/connections is at eye level.

7 Jun

No light in the glove box, no center vents' flow control are strange things to be missing at this mid-trim level.

5 Feb

Also, I would like to have had the side mirror defrosters,

4 Sep

The only down side for me so far is that there is no temperature control for the back seat vents and for the price paid, a dual power seat should have been included (standard on the entry grand touring is driver power seat).

10 Aug

I upgraded from a 2015 CX5 Grand Touring to the 2017 model for the following features: auto rear cargo hatch, much lower noise in the cabin, and rear air conditioning vents (needed in Florida).

"Tired of the issues with my previous vehicle (Subaru), I traded it in for the Mazda CX-5.I had a Mazda Tribute several years ago and I liked it very much.

19 Dec

Plus, the sight lines for this car just suck- especially compared to the Tribute.

8 Sep

I bought this car after owning a 2005 Mazda Tribute for past 11 years and so far I love my CX-5 Touring SUV.

5 Jun

5 yrs later at 51k miles I heard a noice of rattling like somethings loose.

14 Feb

Interior noise on the highway is acceptable, could be quieter.

15 May

The cons: I wish mazda did a better job at muffling the engine noise from the cabin, it's a bit loud.

26 Jan

They are a little noisy in the cabin,

9 Jan

I also found the road noise is reduced, no wind noise as the cabin is well sound proofed.

1 Jan

Had to find & fix various interior rattles (used felt pieces).

13 Dec

Road noise at higher speeds is so bad that the Bose sound system's volume has to be cranked up pretty high to be heard - making conversation virtually impossible.

7 Jul

It does have quite a bit of road noise.

23 Feb

Heres an update: Ive been getting excellent gas mileage, nothing broke or even rattles so far, and I like the Nav system, the automatic HVAC, and the heated seats.Dont like the occasionally harsh cabin noise (engine noise, tire hum).

10 Jan

but there was a lot of annoying road noise that came along with it.

23 Sep

The other knock on this car is the sub-par stereo and the radio controls.

9 Jun

N/A

12 Feb

Although the radio is not the greatest.

28 Aug

Sometimes interferes with the sound of the radio.

15 Aug

even though the radio menu shows XM.

14 Jun

Road noise around 50+ require you to push the radio volume up alot.

1 Jun

Highway noise is so bad it is difficult to hear the radio unless you raise the volume really loud.

23 May

Forget trying to listen to the radio while driving over 40mph.

21 May

So far I've had only a minor issue with my radio losing all my presets and resetting itself, was reprogrammed by dealer under warranty and fix it like 80% of the way.

2 Apr

My ONLY complaint is the subpar BOSE radio,

21 Nov

Bottom line, don't count on SBS / SCBS ( dont buy it)  to slow down or avoid collision when the car in front applies a sudden brake or there is imminent collision.

9 Jun

10 Apr

Now I am very annoyed with the fact that the brakes will need to be replaced, including one caliper in the rear left brake that is frozen.

10 Dec

Noisy on road, direction shack when is cold, direction trouble , emergency electronic break stock and GRIP pads , worst Bluetooth , skyactiv noissy , poor power , original tire bad quality.

22 Sep

My only complaint right now is that I just returned from a spring break road trip and I had two alarms/light go off or light up my dashboard.

26 Sep

- The brakes seized and I had to replace pads/rotors after the first winter.

16 Sep

The only minor complaint is that the brakes are a little weak as compared to the excellent acceleration.

20 Apr

The center console has killed the manual parking break and that created a smoother and more elegant centerstack.

14 Feb

--The rear brakes wore out before the front, which is really odd.

13 Dec

at the dealer to have this checked out and ensure nothing is wrong with the brakes, engine, etc.

2 May

Very disappointing that Mazda does not take responsibility to recall this and fix it.

4 Oct

Windshield is faulty.

20 Aug

This is a very expensive repair that involves removing the dash, or having an AC refresh done every year (though now related equipment is failing) Mazda will not notify nor help with this if not found within the warranty period.

5 Apr

The curved DRL portion of the headlight will fail, headlight assembly is sealed and requires the entire headlight assembly to be replaced to fix it, they are not cheap at around $1000 each and there is no other option.

6 Aug

Transmission failed just under 5,000.

11 Jul

The combination of it's location high in the instrument cluster, the black color of the dash, and summer sun makes it prone to failure when parked in even the slightest bit of sunshine.

8 Jan

The service advisor aked me to leave the car and informed me that they actually did not know what caused the engine failure and had to confer with Mazda again.

4 Oct

Windshield is faulty.

24 Dec

Please note I have not officially complained and I'm not one of the ones on the complaints for either the windshield or the headrest.

22 Sep

Also the front windshield has a blind spot on the right side , due to the slant of the exterior body.

18 Jun

My critiques thus far are few: The ignition switch is hidden behind the bulky windshield wiper control stalk.

30 Apr

The only things I've had happen have been a bit of fate/bad luck - a semi threw a stone at the windshield and cracked it.

14 Feb

--The original windshield had to be replaced in under a year of having the car.

31 Oct

Wiper & light controls do not illuminate. 3.

19 Oct

I purchase a 2016 CX5 the council bubbling the material around it and the windshield has velcro coming out the top of it very poor quality.

Mileage is 27.3 mpg average, Effortless driving, Power is more than adequate, Previously owned a Mazda Tribute for 3 years.

2 May

I don't know if it's an insulation problem or a minor air gap (there is no noise so thinking poorly insulated.

23 Feb

Heres an update: Ive been getting excellent gas mileage, nothing broke or even rattles so far, and I like the Nav system, the automatic HVAC, and the heated seats.Dont like the occasionally harsh cabin noise (engine noise, tire hum).

24 Sep

Somewhere in the back end body metal wise it creaks and rattles, I'm thinking it's the rear covers over the glass in the hatch, go over 60 or in a strong wind and they rattle like mad, with only 25 miles on the car.

16 Jul

Very loud when started (but will quiet after about 30 seconds) and acceleration produces more noise than actual power.

25 May

I would like it to be quieter with road noise, and a little more comfy seating.

9 Feb

Now honestly after 6 months I am use to the noise and it doesn't bother me at all.

14 Dec

I was surprised to hear a grinding noise from rear at about 2 years and a few months after ownership.

17 Jun

but i checked a squeaking sound in my rear brakes and found they were completely worn down and scoring the rotors.

4 Apr

The only negative I would give to the CX-5 is road noise.

3 Feb

The back of the driver's seat squeaks, the navigation is totally ridiculous - doesn't even begin to work.

20 Aug

11 Sep

Watch out for the transmission version of the car, TSB 03-008/15 states an “improper bearing configuration” that will fail, right after the 60k powertrain warranty and set you back $5200!

14 Jan

took to dealer and was informed the heater core was clogged and replacement was nearly 1800 dollars and not covered under warranty which is unacceptable being mazda owned up to putting corrosive coolant in system when it was new.

14 Dec

my fears were confirmed when the dealer confirmed that my rear brake pads and rotor has to be replaced at ~ 34K miles and these things are not covered under warranty.

3 Sep

Replaced rear differential (covered under warranty - no loaner car, multiple day repair).

24 Jun

There is no reason they should have failed and Mazda Customer Service said "Too bad not under warranty".

28 May

but CVT went out at 120k (and Nissan didn't want to cover it under their extended warranty because it was 4k over).

12 Sep

And rusted body parts and peeling paint are not covered by the manufacturers warranty or the extended warranty I purchased.

11 Mar

This particular make, model, and year has a notorious flaw, a defective shifter switch.

13 Jul

One problem I have had, when shutting off car sometimes the electrical system doesnt shut off so I have to turn car back on use the shifter and sort of slam it in park before hitting the

I've been a fan of manual transmission vehicles for a long time and after owning an automatic for ten years I decided to go back to stick shift.

15 Apr

The tranny also tends not to upshift when driving uphill, meaning you the driver have to manually shift or keep playing with the gas pedal. Lame.

26 Feb

but I'm not crazy about all the interior changes they have done, specifically to the center arm rest and radio control knob by the shifter.

23 Nov

The transmission shift gate has been greatly improved to a straight up and down shifter with a leather boot and chrome surround.

2 May

Very disappointing that Mazda does not take responsibility to recall this and fix it.

11 Mar

I bought the car a month ago not knowing about the issue, and already the shifter switch has begun failing.

After software updates failed, replaced entire radio/bluetooth/nav system (covered under warranty,

24 Jun

There is no reason they should have failed and Mazda Customer Service said "Too bad not under warranty".

4 Apr

several years back the "Bluetooth Module" failed and had to be replaced.

14 Mar

The dashboard and controls should have been better designed, it seems that their design was left for a young team that tried to copy state-of-the-art cars and failed a little bit in everything.

12 Feb

The bluetooth audio system crashes, malfunctions, refuses to shuffle music - it's like driving around with a beta version of an audio system constantly.

12 Sep

The first repair was for chipping and peeling paint on the front of the vehicle.
