    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    I do have to agree with you on the issue of running 87 in a run-of-the-mill Mazda. If memory serves me correctly, this will be our 5th Mazda vehicle. A Mazda 5 GT, then a Mazda Tribute and now going on to our 3rd CX-5. Always run them all on 87 or whatever was the standard "cheap" gas at the...

    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    I cannot speak of the purchase price as our's was a lease, not a purchase but our dealer gave us a great deal, as far as I know. I had previously owned a 2014 CX-5 GT and thought I'd keep it for at least 8-10 years until my wife and I switched over to a leased 2018 CX5/GT in Oct. 2018 which was...

    Mazda CX-5 Appreciation Moment

    Wife and I live in a condo complex with unground parking. Our neighbour who is 3 parking spots down from us has a loaded 2019 Mercedez GLA250. A month ago we gave him a ride back home from his dealership where he was having his MB serviced. By the time we got back home, he was totally pissed at...

    Trade-Up? 2021 CX-5 or 2023 CX-5 (or CX-50)?

    This thread is couple months old now but just wanted to add my 2 cents worth. I used to be the owner of a 2014 CX-5/GT, (owned) then traded in on a 4-year lease on a 2018 CX-5/GT but our local Mazda dealer called us in just a few days ago and talked us into a new 2021 CX-5/GT (again leased) for...

    Transferring GPS "Favorites" from one CX-5 to another

    Thanks for the replies guys! I kind of had a gut feeling that I may be SOL with this quest but I'll just sit and scroll through my Nav list manually and jot the names/addresses manually on a pad and eventually reenter them in the new vehicle. Not hard but just a pain in the butt.

    Transferring GPS "Favorites" from one CX-5 to another

    Happily, the 2021s now come with Apple Car Play and Android Play which will allow me to link my smartphone's google maps wit the car's system which I haven't been able to do up until now. Still; if anyone knows how to save the GPS's saved data, that would be great as I do plan to wipe the GPS...

    Transferring GPS "Favorites" from one CX-5 to another

    Have not been able to find my question already answered on forums so here we go. I presently have a 2018 CX-5 Touring/GT model with the built-in GPS Nav feature but I'm presently in process of exchanging it for a new 2021 CX-5 with Touring/GT package. Is there any way of moving all my saved...

    Poll Did you choose the CX-5 over a German SUV?

    Our daughter and her hubby took possession of a brand new 2018 Lexus NX with "Sport" package 2 years ago and were bubbling about all its neat features. Two weeks later, my wife and I showed up at their place with our brand new 2018 Mazda CX-5 GT with 'Tech' package upgrade and promptly burst...

    Has anyone bought a CX-30 yet?

    The Q3s are a smaller vehicle, more in line with the CX-3. Cargo space is minimal. I live near Ottawa, Canada and presently drive a 2018 CX-5 GT with Tech Package. Our daughter and son-in-law have an Audi A3 and I recently tagged along with them to their dealer where I was looking at Q3s and Q5s...
