Mazda CX-5: Problem with my engine

Answered by CarsGuide 29 Jan 2016

I’m surprised that they couldn’t find the cause of the problem, but impressed that they are prepared to replace the car. I wouldn’t be too concerned about the problem happening again, but I would be upset that it will take four months for them to find you a replacement car. That’s unacceptable. I would expect them to move heaven and earth to get you a new car, after all they’ve got your money and now they’ve left you without a car. I hope that they have at least given you a courtesy car for the time you have to wait.

Best mid-size SUV?

Answered by CarsGuide 18 Jan 2016

Kia and Hyundai are both good, with the Tucson currently ahead, but before he commits he should also drive a Mazda CX-5 as it's best in class today and gets The Tick.

What small SUV should I buy?

Answered by CarsGuide 11 Jan 2016

Putting ride-handling up against comfort will mean a compromise on one side, as sporty-feeling SUVs tend to be a bit harsh in the ride with tyre noise as well. The Mazda CX-5 is the benchmark in the class, but the Honda HR-V could be more comfortable and flexible in the cabin.

HR-V or Qashqai

Answered by CarsGuide 11 Jan 2016

The Qashqai is the right pick because of its bigger cabin, even if the Honda has lots of flexibility in its magic seats, but I would not commit without driving the Mazda CX-5, which is the class leader.

Best midsize SUV for retires?

Answered by CarsGuide 4 Jan 2016

The CX-5 is the sales favourite with people buying mid-range SUVs. It seems I’m recommending it every week but that’s because it is a great car that gets The Tick.

Best midsize SUV to update CR-V

Answered by CarsGuide 21 Dec 2015

For your needs, I would recommend the Subaru Forester. It is a great country drive, comfortable and safe, and gets The Tick. The Koleos is getting very dated.

What is the best SUV for towing and off-road?

Answered by CarsGuide 6 Nov 2015

It's becoming a broken record, because the CX-5 gets The Tick and is best in class. The new Vitara is roomy and well built, just flawed by an awful automatic gearbox.

Something smaller than a CX-5?

Answered by CarsGuide 12 Oct 2015

The CX-5 gets The Tick and is best in class, as is the CX-3 tiddler. But if you want something sized between them then I also give The Tick to the Honda HR-V.

I would not recommend a Captiva. At the moment, the CX-5 is best in class but the Tucson also gets The Tick.
