can I use any type of grade petrol in my 2 litre CX 5 Mazda
I have a mazda cx 5 2016 sport maxx diesel awd. I bought it brand new. Initially the range of the tank was upto 990 km on a full tank, but lately I have noticed a decline in the range down to 700 km. Can you advise me what I can do?
Don't know why that is unless you were driving long distance on an open road getting great fuel economy. I have a 2017 CX5 diesel and driving around the city get about 7 liters per 100 kilometers which will show on your trip meter. The math is a 55 liter tank x (100/7) = 785 kilometers per tank.
Is the Mazda warranty for 3 or 5 years?
I have a 2017 cx5 KF series is the Mazda warranty 3 or 5 years ?
Has Mazda solved its diesel engine issues In the 2020 Mazda CX5?
For those complaining about the engine how much highway driving do you do?
Have the black cloth seats (CX5 Maxx sport) been treated in any way?
Just got my 2020 Akera. I have terrible reflections from the dash (where the HUD is) to the windscreen. It changes in different light conditions, so sometimes “flickers”. Incredibly distracting. It is resolved by wearing polarised sunnies, but this really dulls the heads up active display. It also occurs with at night with overhead street and With tunnel lighting. In these intances glasses can’t be worn.
I didn’t notice it when I test drove the car (May have had my sunglasses on) and now it’s so bad I regret buying it. Apart from the reversing camera, I otherwise love the car.
Who else’s Diesel engine has ceased to never work again?
I have a 2020 CX5 Akera diesel. Sometimes the reversing camera monitor stays on for up to 30 seconds after moving the gear shift into Drive. It's only nuisance value, but can the reversing camera be adjusted to make it turn off as soon as Drive is selected?
I just bought a Mazda CX-5 diesel and on car sales it says it should be doing minimum 892km to a tank but I’ve been only getting 530kms ish I’ve filled up twice so I’m just wondering what’s going on or if it’s because it’s new??
You just can’t read fine print Mick. Straight off the Mazda website “ Fuel consumption figures are based on ADR 81/02 test results. They are useful in comparing the fuel consumption of different vehicles. They may not be the fuel consumption achieved in practice. This will depend on traffic, road conditions and how the vehicle is driven.” every manufacturer has this disclaimer. I easily get under 7/100 in my 2.5L petrol on the highway.... if there’s only two people, no extra weight and only at 100k’s. Around town it’s constantly around 10.5-12/100. Learn before you speak
Can you retrofit the 360 degree camera into the 2017 CX 5 Akera?
have a 2012 diesal i put my foot on it going up hill and I lose some power and engine light flashes it fine to drive other wise
have 2012 diesel when I put door down going up a hill I lose some power and engine light flashes car fine any other time
I have a 2018 Mazda CX-5 Touring which has a 2.5ltr petrol engine with AWD. The fuel consumption is a fair bit higher than quoted at 11.4 L/100km and the tank empties very quickly. I am not happy with this. I'd be very interested to know what fuel consumption others are experiencing with this particular 2018 engine.
I've got 2.2 turbo diesel and fuel consumption is 5.8/100km on average. Very happy with the fuel consumption and I drive on the freeways almost everyday so diesel really suits me in terms of the performance and fuel consumptions. Can't comment on petrol and it's consumption though as I never owned one on mazda. End of the day fuel consumptions are based on where and how you drive, usage of battery etc etc.
Thanks for your response Masum. I wish I could drive a diesel as the fuel consumption is half that of the petrol engine I have, however, unfortunately I live on the Northern Beaches of Sydney and due to a lack of freeways most of my driving is at fairly low speed on 60k roads and not suited to diesels.
What consumption do you have on CX5 2.0 petrol?
I have a Mazda CX-5 2015 model 2.5 litre petrol . I would like to know how much load it is able to carry . Mazda can’t tell me, and there is no info on the compliance plate or in the manual .
I purchased my CX-5 second hand through a mazda dealership, buying a turbo diesel as i live in the Kimberley and it will be great for exploring. I recently was on a drive back to darwin where it looks like my turbos are not in good condition, The edges of the blades dont sit flush, with 80,000km on the clock they shouldnt be so worn. Anyone else experience the same issues??
My Mazda CX 5 is a 2015 model .it used to show around 8 litres per 100 kms . After it’s last service it is now showing 13kms per 100 kms. I have reset it a few times with no new result The mechanic says it is nothing he has done in the service that could have caused this . Any ideas ?
HI all, we currently have the latest 2018 CX5 AKERA with 7k on the clock, fuel consumption is terrible with an average of 13.8/100km. Anybody else experience this?
Hi Sal. I'd love to help you - but my new vehicle is the Diesel model. Its very fuel efficient, though I haven't done a long country run yet to see how it goes with fuel consumption in a non stop/start scenario. Do you have istop on? That helps save fuel too. This is probably a stupid statement - but have you called the manufacturer or your local Mazda Dealer to see if this is normal, as there may be an issue with the fuel workings. Always make sure too that your tyres are kept at 36psi always - that can affect your fuel consumption. Good Luck.
Has anyone experienced any problems with the 2.2 diesel engines in 2017 /2018?
