    Gauge Incorrect!

    So, while my CX-5 is in the shop for service the dealership gave me a Mazda 3 hatchback as a loaner. Whenever I get a rental car, I always look at the little arrow near the fuel gauge so I know which side of the car the fuel door is on (which is why it's there). But low and behold, someone at...

    Question on AA Upgrade for 2016.5

    My understanding is that my 2016.5 CX-5 GT AWD might be able to have the Android Auto software upgrade from a dealership. I was just wondering, I currently have all my music on an old 3Gen IPod Nano plugged into the USB. If I go ahead with the AA upgrade and I'm using my phone for...

    Warranty Ending and Annoying Brake Issues / Noises

    I have a 2016.5 CX-5 AWD GT I purchased in April 2017 and the warranty is about to expire. When I first got the car, I had it in the shop 3 or 4 times trying to fix a squeaking noise that would occur when rolling forward slowly (foot off the gas and off the brake). That never really got...

    GT Tech Package....regrets?

    Ok, I already know a bunch of people will say the GT tech. package is worth the cost (I've already heard from some people in another thread). Is there anyone who regrets getting the GT tech. package? I'm holding back because I don't like the idea of SCBS malfunctioning on me or the cost to...

    UV Blocking Clear Window Tint?

    I'm considering a CX-5 GT with the leather seats but I'm worried about hot summer temperatures. I heard about UV blocking clear film for the front windows (dark tinting front windows is legal in California). Just wondering if anyone has used the clear UV window tint before. If so, does it...

    I need a quick answer from the group here. What driver aids come on a 2016.5 Grand Touring here in the US? Blind spot monitoring only? The brochure shows land departure warning as a package option, not standard. I thought it was standard on a GT. I actually hate all the beeping noises cars...

    Mazda CX-5 Splash Guards....Worth It?

    I'm going to be buying a 2016 CX-5 in the next few days. I'm wondering if the Mazda splash guards are really worth it. They seem so small in the pictures online, I'm not sure they would do anything. I do drive down dirt roads fairly often though. Are the Mazda splash guards worth it? Are...

    Questions for Red CX-5 Owners

    I'm strongly considering getting a Soul Red 2016.5 CX-5 and I had some questions for those of you who have this color. 1) Does the color fade over time? Is it too early to tell because CX-5s haven't been around all that long? I know older 80's and 90's cars had this problem but I wasn't sure...

    2017 Touring Seats (U.S. Spec)

    Has anyone seen a picture of the new Touring trim seats for U.S. spec. 2017s? Apparently they will be leatherette with faux suede inserts. I don't know much about faux suede, is it similar to "microfiber" you see on some couches?

    Mazda USA photo mix-up?

    So, I've been checking the Mazda USA website for new information on the 2017 CX-5. I'm actually leaning toward a 2016.5, but I'm waiting for more information to drop on the 2017 before I make a final decision. Plus, hopefully the prices on the 2016s will drop the same time information on the...

    Touring Standard vs Bose Radio (USA spec)

    I've decide to get a 2016 CX-5 in the Touring trim and I'm facing the choice of the standard radio vs the Bose/moonroof package. I really don't want/need the moonroof, so the radio is the determining factor. After reading various threads on here the general consensus I've come away with is...
