    Apparently, lol! This is why I use CR's reliability data and not MT's.

    Just saw the mag; MT considered over thirty SUV/CUV's, but not the CX 5! What's with that?

    That's why I say the rags like MT are good for entertainment and maybe some test results against the clock. Cars people purchase have to meet their needs of the buyer AND they need to look at long term results combined with company history. As an example; I still wont buy a Hyundai/Kia because of the shit they put out in the '90's ...LOL

    To be fair, my Dad's 2006 Kia Sportage is still kicking. It's been solidly reliable for him. I know another person with a 2008 and they likewise have nothing but good things to say. Is a Kia for me? No. But they are certainly a far cry from what they were in the 90's.

    This long term company history you speak of is why people just blindly buy Hondas and Toyotas and ignore Mazda and other brands like that, assuming that the history of reliability they had decades ago is still the same. Hell, before I bought my CX-5, my impression of Mazda was that they were pieces of Ford shit. Things change.

    Except when it is.
    Hate to tell you, Sig, but the Koreans have caught up to the Japanese in most areas. And they've got better warranties to back it up.

    This is true, if only their sales tactics would also evolve. I was very close to purchasing a 2019 Santa Fe Ult. 2.0. The VIN etching, Ziebart, Scotchgard, etc... (must haves) ruined it for me. Not to mention the 2% sales tax error in their favor, which would have been "corrected" in the finance office. I literately had to pry my old car keys out of their hands to leave. The Mazda dealer experience was so much more professional. Easy negotiations and no up-sells that couldn't be easily refused.

    [QUOTE=Sig cx-5;6624730]They seem to be more concerned with fuel economy than anything. Not really what I expect from a car magazine.

    "Despite the CR-V's slower acceleration, we'd still recommend comparing the CX-5 2.5T against the Honda, which is EPA-rated at 27/33 mpg with all-wheel drive and a 1.5-liter engine. Thing is, the CX-5 2.5T's extra power and torque will tempt you every time you get behind the wheel, meaning you may not achieve the EPA's 22/27 mpg estimate in the real world. Even if you did, however, that's less driving range and lower fuel economy than the CX-5 2.5 AWD's 24/30 mpg. Depending on how you feel about your role amid increasingly serious news about climate change, owning the gorgeous and entertaining CX-5 2.5T also comes standard with the guilt you may carry from driving a compact crossover with the fuel economy of a larger vehicle. Put another way, the quicker CX-5 2.5T merely manages EPA-rated fuel economy on the highway what the CR-V 1.5 AWD achieves in the city (the more challenging rating for non-hybrids)."[/QUOT

    Not only is MT cheerleading for Honda, but they could spare the reader their political views presented as facts: no need for climate change and suggesting feelings of guilt over it to be mentioned in a car review. Let the reader come to his or her own conclusions about the new CX-5s mpg ratings and whether it is a deal breaker or not...the reader doesn't need a lecture on climate change or made to feel guilty for driving a " compact crossover with the fuel economy of a larger vehicle. "

    Sounds like a stealership problem more than a Hyundai problem to me. There are Mazda and all car maker stealerships trying the same sales tactic bullshit...Sad, but true.

    Agreed. Mazda dealer tried to add 2 percentage points to my finance rate on the way out. Wasn't having it and they relented.

    So they rag on the CX5 T mpgs via climate change but wank off to every AMG, RS, and Porsche that consumes gas like a redneck chugging Budweiser’s on a Saturday night? Mmm-Kay

    They are what the Japanese were, in this market, basically. I won't lie, if Hyundai came out with something I liked, I'd buy it. The Kona for example slaughters the CX3. Absolutely tears it up like soft bread, when you get the performance model. It's on par with/better than the new turbo CX5.

    Holy crap! I only pay 2.8% on my used CX5. If they had tried to nearly double the rate!?
