I just listed mine for sale...

I have had it 6 months and the fun factor wore off pretty quick... The car is small, and overall it has a cheap, plasticy feel to it, imho. The paint quality is absolutely the worse, too.

It's my mistake for getting into a car like this, as I have primarily owned rear-wheel-drive trucks, suvs and sport's cars, and I just can't get myself to like the feel of a front wheel drive. And it could use a little more power...

I am not trying to be a negative prick, so I'll list the positives - beautiful design, relatively functional despite being small, handles like a high end sports car, excellent transmission, and very cool looking interior!

It only has 1,100 miles on it and I have spent $5,000 plus on aftermarket stuff (most of that going to the audio), so I should be able to sell it for a good price... I hope!

Here are some of the highlights:

Too bad ... after all that work :-(

I'm right at 1.5 years and enjoy it more each day. Perfect size for me ... and once I get my new Recaro installed, I'll be poring over your posts for soundproofing and moderate audio mods.

Thank you!

For me, doing the work is the greatest joy in owning a car... I have no regrets regarding the work done to it and I hope the next owner appreciates and enjoys it!

I look forward to seeing the Recaro seat once you get it in!

One thing is for sure, whomever buys it is going to be pretty pleased with the work you put into it

I hope so!

I do like the CX-5, but I am not sure if I can do another fwd and Mazda paint...

My previous was a 2016 Jeep Wrangler and my wife and daughter both think I should get another one...

Shame to see you move on. Have enjoyed your skills in audio setup.

Hope you find what you in a car next time.

I note all these comments re paint but mine has been good.

In Australia they come from a Japanese factory.

Is that the same for the US or are the built locally for you.

Thank you! I think ours are built overseas, too, but I'm not sure...
