Looking for your help! Need some help in making a final desicion on which one of these two I'm going to bring home. I won't go into detail on my own thoughts on each vehicle. I have test driven both. I'm just looking for your votes!

which one would you choose??
1. 23 cx5 sport design turbo in soul red. Damn gorgeous signature mazda color and that turbo! Quiet urban ninja!


or 23 cx50 Gsl package (can) non turbo. Sleek, beefier, more capable? modern, peppy naturally aspirated, but road noise, missing some options.


I am torn. The cx5 is about $4k more. These are the only two options I get my hands on within a week and I just traded my outback.

I didn’t vote. Honestly, I suspect by the way you wrote your post that you prefer the CX-5 but are hesitant to spend the extra $5k. If that is the case and you can afford the $5k, go for the CX-5.

Happy owner for 8 months, almost 6500 miles. Had one minor rattle in the center dash that I fixed with some foam. Other than that, flawless and fun as hell to drive.

IMO, get the 50. Don't let the statements of "don't get a first-year model" or "not assembled in Japan" deter you. The engine and transmission are made in Japan and have a long history of reliability in other models. Every manufacturer has its issues, no car is flawless off the line whether it is a first-year model or not. Look hard enough and read enough forums and you'll talk yourself out of any car. We, forum members, are the slim 1% who only write about issues we have and not when everything is going great. Test drive, test drive, test drive, and get the car that fits your current lifestyle and family needs.
