    My car

    Most comfortable car I've ever driven. Excellent driving position, loads of space, top spec and excellent build quality. Reasonable economy but only £30/year road fund licence and reasonable insurance costs.

    My car

    I Have had this car for nearly 8 months and I find it a joy to drive. I changed to the Mazda from a Kia Sportage and not only is the mpg figures an improvement, couple that with 35 pound a year road tax compared to 150 then there is no contest. Customer relations are an improvement, too! The boot with the seats down will accommodate 2 sets of golf clubs including bags and three wheeled trollies with space to spare. Car is easy to drive and you soon forget the size of the vehicle, the front and rear sensors make parking a dream. Mpg is continuing to improve as the car beds in. No mechanical problems so far. Only gripe is playing the ipod thru the car audio system, it always goes back to the same song which is annoying as even with shuffle it plays them in the same order. That is my only complaint and in short this car is a good buy. Dealer in Inverness Macrae and Dick a pleasure to deal with.

    My car

    I have done over 52k plus in the CX5 2.2D and I'm very impressed with the car. My ratings are based on the type of car it is and the cost, so yes there are better handling cars with better quality cabins etc, but not at the price. The car is my company car and I have had to do 500m+ day trips (with meetings in the middle) and when I get home I'm not stiff as I have been in previous cars. It also a good load carrier so I have used it to get equipment to site when necessary. However I have just made it even better, just had my tyres replaced (Second set on the front, first at the back) and they could not get the Yoko whatevers that were it originally fitted. So I had some Dunlop Grandtrack V106XL fitted instead and the ride quality and noise levels improved noticeably.

    My car

    I bought this following glowing reviews and what is claim very low fuel consumption. Bought via Drivethedeal.com who I would recommend. The car lacks the class it should very poor quality in places, plastic trim that is easily displaced, not what I expected. It is very good to drive and tows well. None of this can make up for the diabolical fuel consumption which has average 35mpg over 16 months. I drive it carefully but it is miles away from what is claimed. Previously I have found that my cars are somewhere near the combined figure not nearly 20mpg lower! Then there was the rising oil issue, the dealer I took it to claimed to have no knowledge and charged me to sort it out. Mazda did refund the cost but why was this issue not known to the dealers? Sorry but I will not be buying another Mazda.
