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

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
