Checked Edmonds for the specs on the CX-5. Noted the Tech Package and when talking to the dealer found out I must take the Bose/Moonroof package with the tech package. Your build it page does not note this requirement. Why was this very important add on omitted from your spec summary?

Picked up my cx-5 Sport on Thursday and LOVE it....worth the month it took for them to locate one!!!!! I thought the horsepower was lower than its competitors? Regardless, this vehicle goes!!! Anyways, my sideview mirror really vibrates with wind/medium speed. I see this is an issue with Mazdas design. Should I just get used to it given its not mechanical?(not bothering me too much) or bring it up to my salesman? Is there really something out that they can put in to support it? Also my HD is working fine EXCEPT for one station. It was in HD when I got the vehicle Thursday....Saturday evening I got nothing on the station which led me to believe the station had problems and went off the air. When it came back on that night and since then it no longer comes in HD. Given everything else is fine it appears it would be a station issue yet its been over 3 days.??? On the menu of stations it still says 102.5HD. Thanks for any help!

This has not been a problem on my Touring. Go see the dealer.

I've read this complaint somewhere before but my touring model's mirror does not vibrate.Talk to the service manager and tell him about it,sometimes service bulletins come out to deal with manufacturing defects.

The mirror shaking is a known issue and I've read that Mazda is working on a fix. I also recommend going to the dealer.

Have you still got the slight shake in your Cx-5? I have had mine CX-5 for 2 months now, and I have also this problem, but not only in the steering, but in the whole car. I have checked both wheels and tires, but nothing is wrong there. It started with slight shaking in steering but after a while I noticed that it also started to shake from 97 - 112 km/h in the whole car. Itís hard to notice but itís there. If one put a glass of water in the car, it can easily be seen. I will once more contact the dealer. . There are too many small issues to this car, that I almost dont like it anymore. Such as when you connect your Iphone to the AUX at the same time you have bluetooth connection on, it has some problems. And what is it with the electrical warming in the sidemirrors that only work when you heat your frontwindow etc etc...

Just an update in case anyone is having the same issue.....I was first told by the dealer that my side view mirror vibrating is basically the way it is and I am welcome to test drive a CX-5 on the lot to see its the same. Uh no thanks and not acceptable! Told him if he or his mechanic did not get a dizzy feel looking at the mirror then apparantly they didnt see it at its worse AND that I researched it and Mazda is aware of the problem. Well lo and behold after service contacted Mazda they did tell him they're working on a fix. Dont know what the fix will be or how long I'll have to wait. Would have been nice if they would have contacted Mazda first before basically asking me to accept it as is. Perhaps because I'm female and blonde they thought I'd cave??....nope!!! As far as the radio station it appears it may be a reception issue as all my other stations that are in HD do come in HD. Other than that I still LOVE my CX-5!!!

With smallest available U-Haul trailer (4x8 foot size), drove from Apple Valley MN to San Antonio TX. Set cruise control to legal speed limits (or occasionally less if winds etc. demanded it), and averaged 21.5 MPG. Not surprising that MPG would fall while towing, and I am quite satisfied with the result, compared to the 12-15 MPG I was getting with a Lexus RX 300 pulling a trailer between MN and TX previously. Now that the trailer has been returned to U-Haul, I am lookking forward to returning to the 28+ MPG that I was getting without a trailer.
Of course, the CX-5 was not as Zoom-Zoom when hauling a trailer, but I never felt an unsafe drop in performance. Gotta love that SkyActive technology and excellent performance from the little 4 cylinder engine. Much to my own surprise, if Mazda offered a bigger 4 cylinder or a V6 engine, I would no longer be interested in it. I am so happy with the car as currently configured. My *ONLY* disappointment to date is with the navigation system. It does not work as well as the navigation provided by my Android smart phone.
