Mazda CX-5 2018

The 2018 Mazda CX-5 range of configurations is currently priced from $23,965. Our most recent review of the 2018 Mazda CX-5 resulted in a score of 8 out of 10 for that particular example.

Carsguide Family reviewer Nedahl Stelio had this to say at the time: The CX-5 gives a fairly seamless driving experience once thought hard-to-attain in this price range. It ticks all those boxes I outlined at the beginning - it looks good, drives beautifully, has enough space for a family even with a smaller boot size, and it makes you feel good while driving, which is really one of the most important things about buying a new car.

  • Mazda CX-5: How to adjust headlights

    Take your car to the dealership, or your local mechanic, and ask them to do it for you. There is something of a black art to correctly aligning headlights and (if you get it wrong) you could blind oncoming motorists or not be able to see the road properly, which could lead to disastrous results.

  • How to change the oil on a Mazda CX-5?

    The principals of changing any fluid, including engine oil, in cars hasn't really changed in the last 70 years. Warm up engine, remove filler cap, drain old oil into a pan, swap oil filters, refill oil to recommended level using the oil grade recommended by the manufacturer. However, if you get something wrong in that process there is a real risk of injury or causing (financially) catastrophic damage to your car, so I'd suggest newbies take their cars back to the dealership, or a good independent mechanic, to have a professional do the job for you. They can also give your car a once-over to ensure nothing else needs repairing, or will wear out soon!

  • Is the Mazda CX-5 a reliable car?

    Yes, no and maybe! Mazda has sold a heap of their compact SUV in Australia and they have generally been pretty good reliability-wise, though there has been an increasing number of manual transmission failures reported at between 50,000km and 75,000km. Disturbingly, these are reported to only be fixed by replacing the entire manual gearbox. There have also been questions raised over oil consumption in the Skyactiv petrol motors, and the longevity of steering racks.
