A good buy, very pleased

Some years ago I wrote seeking advice regarding a replacement vehicle. Your response was prompt and valued. I followed your advice and purchased one of the vehicles you suggested, a Mazda CX-5 2.2D Skyactive, 2 wheel drive. I thought you might appreciate an update as it could be useful for the future. Now over 100,000Km and very pleased, a good choice. It drives and tows well and too date has returned an average of about 34mpg. At tyre change I switched to Michelin Cross Climate and though I do not yet know how they will last they are a quieter and smoother ride than delivery fit.

So far there has been one factory recall. One warranty claim; a new Throttle Box was fitted to solve vehicle hunting. Oil changes come round surprisingly quickly, less than 10,000Km per event. There are minor niggles with the entertainment system but I, for the moment, can live with these. One fairly major downside, if one of the front LED Driving/sidelights fails you are faced with a bill for €890.00 for a complete new Headlight - ouch. I pushed my case with Mazda and received a 90% rebate but it is still a very expensive sidelight and I do not think they will respond the same in the future.

Hope this is useful.
