I'm selling my gorgeous single-owner 2015 Mazda CX-5 Sport. I love this car and I think you will too. In addition to its good looks, it is in pristine condition and is a ton of fun to drive. With great gas mileage (33.5 mpg) to take you where you want to go, top-of-the-line safety ratings to help you get there in one piece, and Mazda-level reliability to help you sleep at night, what more do you need in a vehicle? My wife and I no longer need the extra vehicle so we decided to pay it off and sell it slightly below market value to get it off our hands.
Owners: Just me. I purchased this new and have babied it for its entire life. Given it has a manual transmission, you can believe me when I tell you that I have been its sole driver. Too few of my friends and family know how to drive a stick. The vehicle history report says there are 2 owners because my wife is a co-owner on the title. I purchased this vehicle new and have never sold or transferred ownership.
Transmission: This SUV has a 6-speed MANUAL transmission (please note that this is not an automatic transmission vehicle). It shifts more smoothly than any standard I've driven. If you are not familiar with the joys of regularly driving stick, here are a few:Driving is more engagingManual transmissions are cheaper and easier to repairYou become a more aware (read: safer) driverNo one asks to borrow your car
Fuel Efficiency: Rated at 26mpg in-town and 35 mpg on the highway. The lifetime average fuel economy of my car is 33.5mpg (see dash photo).
Mileage: 74,500 miles. Most of these were highway miles commuting between Rochester and Buffalo.
MechanicalEverything works great mechanically. The vehicle has no known or suspected issues.The car rides smoothly and quietly, with no unusual noises.Great acceleration. 155 horsepower, 150 lb-ft torque.AC works great and blows very cold.No warning lights on (see dash photo).It has never missed and oil change and has received regular maintenance at the dealership. I purchased this car while they were doing a free oil change for life promotion, so I always kept an eye on when I was due for one and had them do their full multi-point inspection each time I brought it in. They kept the fluids topped off and let me know any time something needed to be tuned, flushed, or replaced.I have a complete record of the maintenance history.
ElectricalThe electronics all work great. There are no known or suspected issues with them.Push-button engine start! As long as your key is within the car, the push-button starter will work. I was skeptical at first, but it's amazing to be able to leave your keys in your pocket while driving. Try forgetting your keys in the car when they never have to come out of your pocket in the first place!AM/FM/CD/MP3 4-speaker audio system with USB aux audio input and charging. My long daily commute was made much more enjoyable because I could play audiobooks from my iPhone while it charged.Audio controls and cruise controls on the steering wheel. I can't understate how great it is to have a vehicle with steering wheel control buttons.Power locks, windows (with driver one-touch), and mirrors

Tires: Four Continental Cross Contact LX20 225/65R17 102T all-season tires (purchased new on 2/24/18 at $587). They have seen little mileage as I stopped commuting 2 months later. See image with penny for tread.
BodyThis car has never been in an accident! It is in fantastic shape.There are some ever-so-thin scratches on the paint from highway driving. The metallic (Meteor Gray) paint makes these normal scratches unnoticeable unless you are very close. There are also a few tiny paint chips (no rust) from normal highway driving that are easily repairable and are not noticeable until you get close.The rear bumper has a tiny dent in the middle of the plastic section from I assume someone's failed attempt at parallel parking behind me. It is a black bumper with no markings or discoloration at the dent, so it's barely noticeable. I cared more about the fact that I never got a note than I did about fixing it.There are a few minor scratches on some of the interior panels. I don't think anyone riding with me has ever noticed them. The only reason I've noticed is because I clean my car very carefully and get close enough to see everything.There is one small star on the windshield which was just professionally repaired with a lifetime guarantee to not spread (I was told by the technician however that the guarantee is not transferrable). There is one additional mark that looks like a star but when I brought it in for repair the tech told me that it would never spread because the mark is only on the surface.The pocket on the back of the driver's seat has a small tear in the top-right stitching. It is easily repairable with a small sewing kit and black thread, though I suppose you could pay a small amount to have it done professionally.*I specifically mention the above flaws for the sake of transparency, but really none of them take anything away from the beauty and quality of this car.
Also comes with:19-foot jumper cableFour heavy duty all-weather floor matsTwo keys (with remote lock/unlock/alarm)Trunk cargo netOwner's manualsIce scraperAn emergency donut tire (stored in the trunk under the floor panel)A jack (also stored in the trunk under the floor panel)If you want them, I have two Continental ExtremeWinterContact winter tires with great tread on them
