    Infotainment rebooted on its own, is this normal?

    Easiest test is to just remove SD card & see if it continues. This happened to my son's Mazda 3 & the SD was the culprit. Happened mostly in extreme cold. There's a thread on here that details this issue at length.

    Realistic price discount for a 2023 CX-5?

    Agreed. I compared everything in this category and went for the Mazda. When my first CX-5 was rear ended & totaled at 4 months I replaced it with it's clone. My youngest son has a Mazda 3 & loves it. He's had no problems whatsoever. My older son lost his car in a flood & wanted to replace it...

    Realistic price discount for a 2023 CX-5?

    Yeah, my brother is shopping RAV4 & the Toyota dealer who just acquired the Mazda/VW dealer I've been dealing with is advertising $2k ADM on a normal RAV4 & $4k ADM on a hybrid. So far they haven't advertised that on any of the Mazda's & VW's. At the 1/2 dozen or so Toyota dealers my brother...

    August 2022 Map Update Available

    I have a 2019 GTR. The latest map version for mine is August 2022. The email I got from Mazda stated that as did Mazda Toolbox when I did my latest update. If you take a look at posts #2 & #3 above apparently the newer CX-5 with the redesigned non touchscreen infotainment system use a different...

    Realistic price discount for a 2023 CX-5?

    It never hurts to ask. The worst they can do is say no.

    Except this year. This is the first time Mazda emailed me that a new map was available. I saw a few other members mentioned this as well.

    Considering purchasing a new CX-5

    FWIW, I cross compared The CX-5 to all the similar competition. My wife has and loves her 2018 Outback. It suits her needs & has also been a decent vehicle. I find my 2019 CX-5 GTR more fun & satisfying to drive. My first CX-5 was rear ended & totaled at 4 months. My son & I walked away with no...

    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    I love to respond to those emails with a "You had the same chance as everyone else to give me your best price & now you're too late".

    Realistic price discount for a 2023 CX-5?

    They have a car buyers program where participating dealers agree to sell at a fixed predetermined price. At the time (pre covid) I was able to get a better price sending emails to a bunch of dealers requesting their best prices. The Costco participating dealer would not budge off their...

    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    My local Mazda/VW dealer was recently acquired by a group with several other franchises. My brother was looking at RAV4 so I perused the new owners Toyota website. All their RAV4 stock lists additional dealer markup of $2k & $4k on hybrids. So far their Mazda website list CX-5 at MSRP. I've...

    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    3 years of Mazda recommended maintenance as specified in the owners manual or 3 years of typical dealer highly recommended maintenance?

    Need advice with potential dent removal

    Since the paint appears to be intact, I would get an opinion from someone who does paintless dent removal. They could tell you what is possible especially along the fender crease. It's still going to cost you but not as much as typical body work. I was skeptical the first time I had it done &...

    JDM rear low profile headrests

    I believe that's correct. I replaced my rears with JDM CX-5's. I kind of remember "borrowing" one from a CX-3 in the show room just to see & it did not fit.

    Got into a accident yesterday

    Good to hear you are getting a decent payout. As I mentioned earlier in this thread, I also was rear ended & totaled. I was stopped in a line of cars waiting for a red light. An elderly woman in a MB SUV hit the gas instead of the brakes & rear ended me, pushing me into a brand new Charger in...

    2017~2023 Anybody know the date of the latest Nav update?

    March 2022. I'm in the same boat & your post prompted me to check mine. Mine says version up to date March 2022 with my 3 years ending 10/16/2022. I'll check it again right before it expires.
