Calling on 2017 CX-5 Owners - Reliability

Looking at a used 2017 CX5 GT trim with 45K kms/29K miles on it...can existing owners just chime in on so far how the reliability experience has been in almost 3 yrs of ownership. I know Mazda as a brand is reliable (having owned one) however would appreciate any real world feedback/experience. Thanks!

I'm at 35K and two years ownership of a '17 GS. Mechanically, the only issue has been the A/C "whoop" issue a couple others have had (expansion valve related).

From my owner perspective, the big miss in my 2017 (other than the 2.5T--it is underpowered, IMHO) is memory seats, which I think were buried in the premium package. Never thought it would bother me, but I struggle to find a neutral seating position in it.

I’ve had my 2017 since June of 2017 when it had 4 miles on it. Now it has a little over 41k as of today. I’ve not had any issues with this car other than some squeaking from suspension when turning at certain angles (same issue with my 2014 mazda3). Been very reliable. This car has been solid, no rattles even with 20” wheels. I’m sure my next car will be Mazda as well, they’re very reliable.

2017 is my second Mazda, alignment needs a little more attention, other than that the car itself is a very good and reliable for me, excellent freeway and city driving, love the car.
the bottom line is on how the car was taken care of.

I currently drive a "16 GT and love it. No mechanical issues whatsoever in 4 years. I will say, as a partsman for a German brand, regular maintenance (like maz5188 alluded to) and care is the best way to ensure no big repairs before their time...

2017 Mazda CX-5 Touring/Preferred
I've had a 2017 Touring since new and now has 45,000 miles on it. One issue I had was that the rear brake calipers froze due to inadequate lubrication of the caliper pins from the factory. I live in the "rust belt". I was out of warantee, so paid for new pads and rotors. The same thing happened to my 2013 CX-5, but was covered. The nav card just malfunctioned, but the dealer updated it and seems to be working. They said if it was still under warantee they could put an updated card in. Otherwise it would cost $500. I passed on that. The OEM tires were replaced with Michelin CrossClimate SUV tires, and have been working out very well.

i was one of the unlucky few, got a card from a defective batch. but the dealer replaced with an original new card (16Gb) made in Japan, map provided by "Here". couldn't be more happier than that.

Thanks for the feedback everyone! Seems like for most part mechanically reliable...yes only way to determine how it was looked after is to review the service history.

Just my two cents: Had my '17 over two years with no mechanical problems at all. Engine, suspension, electronics all work perfectly.

My only gremlin was a creak in cold weather and the occasional rattle inside. Solved by turning up the radio. :)
