    Default Who has a Mazda cx5?

    Looking at getting a Mazda 5 used maybe 2012-2013 touring model. For those that have one, are you happy with it? Anything you don't like about it?
    Is it good for long drives?

    I do and love it!. Mine is the CX5 Maxx Sport Diesel. Thoroughly recommend it, it's smooth, roomy interior, roomy boot and very economical fuel wise as we have the diesel. The only thing which takes a bit of getting used to is the i-stop, but I disable it when I am driving anyway. Absolutely no problem on long drives as it's a very comfortable drive and has all the bells and whistles that you expect in a modern SUV. Great re-sale value if you buy one and sell it as they're one of the best SUV's on the market apparently.

    I have a 2014 model and really like it. You can beat it for fuel economy and it drives really well. My only issue with it is that it's deceptively small inside - we are about to have bubs number 2 and when we out the second car seat in the car, you will not fit an adult (& barely a child! In the back seat....) but overall id highly recommend!

    We have a 2013 base model. I agree with a PP, once you have the second car seat in you can't fit an adult in the back.

    We've done a couple of long drivers (12 hours and then return, 10 hours and return) and found it great on fuel economy and comfort. Fit nearly everything in. Not quite as big a boot as some other cars in its class though.
