TrueDelta Reviews the Reliability And Durability of the 2015 Mazda CX-5

2015 Mazda CX-5 Reliability And Durability: Cons
YearComment
2014 Neither vehicle's long-term reliability is known at this point. But Toyota has a stronger record. My main concern with the CX-5 is that it might be prone to rust like older Mazdas. But the same wheel opening trim that makes the wheels look small should also help prevent rust. Around 2019 we'll find out. With this, I'm all out of reasons not to buy a Mazda CX-5. full 2014 Mazda CX-5 review

2013 4dr SUV 155-horsepower 2.0L I4
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
This last category was hard to choose because there are so many things this Mazda does well, but the brand does have a very good reputation for being built well and being reliable and I did have an older '89 626 that was very reliable and lasted until the trannie gave out at 165K miles. I'm sure it could've gone on for many more miles past that, but it didn't make sense to pay $3000+ to fix the transmission on a car that was only worth a little more than half that at the time. If this new car is as good as that one, I'll be a happy camper! full 2013 Mazda CX-5 review

The CX-5 has been a great performer for my small family (just the wife and I). It is our little adventure-mobile and doubles as my daily driver. I only have 20k miles on it, but it has been a great performer with awesome reliability. full 2013 Mazda CX-5 review

This is an unknown. I haven't had any problems to date, but the car has been on the market for less than a year. full 2013 Mazda CX-5 review

TrueDelta Reviews the Gas Mileage of the 2015 Mazda CX-5

2015 Mazda CX-5 Gas Mileage: Pros
YearComment
2014 In a bid to broaden the appeal of its cars, Mazda added a focus on fuel economy to its traditional emphasis on handling. The 2013 CX-5 earned surprising EPA fuel economy ratings of 26 mpg city, 35 highway--but with a manual transmission and front-wheel-drive. Add AWD and a six-speed automatic transmission, and the ratings fell to a less lofty but still competitive 25/31. This, though, was with the wheezy 155-horsepower 2.0-liter engine. Certainly adding a half-liter of displacement (and 29 horsepower) must impact mpg. It does, but not much: fuel economy drops by a single mile per gallon, yielding 24/30. For those who'd like to trade the extra power for one mpg, the 2.0 continues to power the base "Sport" trim. I don't foresee many takers. The larger engine feels much stronger. At least as important, it doesn't sound nearly as weak and buzzy. But you won't find powertrain performance among the reasons to buy a CX-5 because the improvement merely makes the CX-5 competitive in this area. The CR-V and RAV4, among others, are about equally quick. Even with slightly lower EPA ratings the CX-5 still bests the 22/29 RAV4, especially in city/suburban driving. But there's a new segment champ. The 2014 Subaru Forester manages 24/32. full 2014 Mazda CX-5 review

My Mazda is the AWD model, and, I'm pleasantly surprised that it's bascially hitting its EPA numbesr so far. I've done 3 long trips, mostly interstate, running 70 - 75 Mph, and, average mileage is running 27.5 - 30 Mpg. full 2015 Mazda CX-5 review

The number two reason I chose this vehicle was for the gas mileage, which has so far exceeded my expectations. According to the information screen, I've been averaging between 29 and 30 mpg. full 2014 Mazda CX-5 review
