Got my new CX-5 two weeks ago, in replacement of my 2009 Tribute GT 4WD, which was totaled in an accident in late June. By the way, I have to take my hat off to my Mazda Tribute, the truck did what it was supposed to do as far as safety and because of it, my 19-year old son walked away unscathed! What a great SUV the Tribe, gonna miss it. But on to the CX-5, great CUV thus far. I now am fortunate to say that I have one each of all three CXs and have a hard time selecting which one to drive every day, they're all so cool!
2008 CX-9 GT AWD - Liquid Platinum.
2010 CX-7 GT AWD - Copper Red (had the 2008 CX-7 GT AWD - Black Cherry Mica before this one).
2013 CX-5 GT AWD - Sky Blue (had the 2009 Tribute GT 4WD before this one).
Mazda makes great performing cars. Also at one time had the 2007 Mazda6 i-GT. Great car too.

I would like to see a picture of a bicycle fit without removing the wheel
#304 of 404 alignment
Jul 21, 2012 (7:10 pm)
I purchased a 2013 CX-5 GT about a month ago and have noticed a slight shake in the steering. It's been to the shop twice and they say the alignment is spot on and the tires are in balance. Is anyone else having this issue?

I have had my CX-5 for 4 months. The steering, ride, and and handling set a standard of pure enjoyment and excellence....I have experienced no shake. I would suggest that you go somewhere else like a tire supply business and have the tires rebalanced. This type of business "usually" can provide a better / correct balance. Good luck.

I have 5,700 miles on my CX-5 with no vibration problem. Good Luck with yours.

Find a dealer or tire shop that has a Road Force balancer....assuming there is no hidden problem, it should do the trick.
#308 of 404 CX-5 vs. Mini Countryman

My next vehicle will be a CX-5 Sport with the 6 speed manual transmission. I was pretty much set on the Countryman, but after driving both I decided to save thousands of $$$ with the CX-5, and have the flexibility of installing an aftermarket in dash DVD-NAV deck. Oh yeah, I can also tow 2K.

purchased a GT 3 weeks ago, having the same problem went back to the dealer balanced all 4 tires, still the same , the driver side mirror shakes so badly I think it might fall off. Back to the dealer again.

you would think for $30 grand on a loaded GT they would include a compass, I found out after I purchased the car that you have to purchase it as an accessory for about $275 ,what a rip.
#311 of 404 xenon lamps on cx5
Aug 03, 2012 (6:47 pm)
Just purchased the cx5 about 3 weeks ago. My wife drives the car. Tonight was the first time I had the opportunity to drive the car at night. I would love to know what others think of these lamps. The light cuts off abruptly on the "horizon" making it impossible to drive more than 25 or 30 mph on low beams, on dark roads. It gives me the same feeling you get when trying to drive in heavy fog.....
