Best car I have owned.

by Frank from Cincinnati | March 23, 2020

This vehicle is comfortable even for long drives. It gets excellent gas mileage and performs as expected. Just returned from putting on 4000 miles over 2 weeks and got 30 mpg overall. This included mountain driving.

Smart and reliable

by JenB from Mission Viejo CA | March 21, 2020

The style is elegant but drive like a truck! It is excellent in merging on and off freeway during heavy traffic, powerful yet easy to manipulate.

Combines the reliability and comfort I need

I am tall and have a bad back, which makes buying comfortable cars difficult. Mazda CX-5 is the one that fits and is lovely to look at. Oh, and the fact that it always works, has a roomy interior and lots of how do you say zoom zoom is a nice bonus.
