Given the number of posts about CX-60 faults, I thought it about time we focused on the positives.

So, what do you like about your car? What flicks your switch or tickles your fancy?

No miserable sods please 馃ぃ

I鈥檓 thrilled with mine too, collected her last Wednesday and, like Oxonian, still have well over half a tank of fuel. Not brand new, 1800 miles, registered 30th Dec, used by one of one the dealership directors. Has the revised suspension and all software updates. Driven on motorways and country lanes, currently not a single complaint, hope it remains like that. The big test will be driving to Greece in the autumn!

To Greece......that will certainly be some test! Can't wait to hear how it goes.

I'm mainly doing trips under 30 miles, which is ideal for EV mode if course, plus one 200 mile journey mainly on motorways over the weekend. I've done about 5 charges so far

1500km, none of the major issues seen in other threads, and very happy with my Homura PHEV.

The interior design is one of the best in class The exterior design is one of the best in class The 3.3 diesel engine is a peach in performance and noise and with low emissions with mega MPG

wow that colour is really nice
Generally, I value the improvements over my previous (20 plate) Mercedes E350D AMG Line Premium Plus.....

1. Much more comfortable than the Merc's sporty seats. I no longer suffer from cramp in my knees.
2. Far better equipped, HUD, Radar Cruise Control, I-Activsense etc.
3. Better ride (no low profile tyres thudding over every minor bump), yes I have got the superior factory fitted shocks.
4. Easier parking, the Mazda cameras are much superior (the Mercedes had Park-Pilot - far too scary!).
5. Incredible economy and lower costs (here, I include purchase price compared to the equivalent Merc PHEV).
6. Real leather and luxury, not faux leather and black plastic pretending to be 'premium'.
7. Far better all-round vision.
8. It doesn't look a black taxi - Soul Red Crystal - I haven't noticed as many heads turning since I sold my Italian

I am finally beginning to like my CX-60. But only after the car spent two days at the dealer.
  • The 12 V battery problem is solved with updates to electrical management system
  • Mazda is able to let the gears 鈥渓earn鈥 how to behave. This was done in the garage and gear switching is now much smoother and less abrupt
  • And a pleasant side-effect: the oscillating vibrating sound has gone!
  • Mazda is also able to re-align the sensors of the Active-sense cruise control. Also this was done
  • My doors have been given extra insulation (no more tin sound)
  • The tow bar was clumsily fitted, but is now working okay
I like the interior (Takumi), i like the seats, i like the driver personalization (adapted to my settings), and it recognizes me well.
The amount of petrol and electricity are OK for me (5,3l/100 km, 25,5 KWh/100 km)
Sound of the radio is excellent.
I have tried Android auto and it works OK (my wife does not like it, so we don鈥檛 use it).
Color is fantastic.

So all in all, I am finally becoming satisfied with the car.
Next week will be the test as a caravan towing vehicle, when we go to France with our caravan.

Nice (y) - I hope they sort mine next week
Did a 600 mile journey across UK the past weekend.
Liked:
  • averaged 38mpg on Petrol alone (I couldn't charge in between as most service stations only had the instavolt DC charging)
  • it definitely got the pace and love it when accelerating away from roundabout.

New issues:
  • A creaking sound when turning slowly, probably suspension
  • driver side mirror wobbling. On rough motorways/Aroads driver side mirror got this wobbling issue.

Disliked:
  • if EV is not engaged and when accelerate hard after a roundabout, the engine feels really rough.
  • High road noise in motorways
  • Fuel tank is really small, maximum I could get is 260 miles from petrol alone with full tank. May be I have refuelling issue?

I just did a 200 Mile run in mine and got 49.7mpg out of the 254hp diesel (couldn't get to the magic 50mpg) - my suspension moans and groans at low speed - mirrors seem to be OK though - its in the dealers next week to hopefully get its issues sorted

Changed to a black houmora CX60 on May 16th, cannot stop admiring the vehicle, it is stunning to look at and drives brilliantly. Is the ride firm, yes , but no more so than the Volvo xc60 i changed from with their poor google infotainment system.
I do wonder sometimes if forums and faults go together and resonate problems or at least minimal issues into potential significant problems.

I agree it's not a bad looking car and the mpg is straight double of what I was getting from my q7 - it does have issues though and some very basic features that are missing - mine is at the dealers now having some of its problems sorted - I'm going to get a Clifford alarm fitted that will get me remote start, global opening/closure and the ability to open the car from the app, I might swap the shocks and springs over but to be honest the ride is slackening off the more the car gets used. What's the black like to keep clean? I've got the soul crystal red and it needs washing about twice a day 馃ぃ馃ぃ馃ぃ

I think that's often the case, although I'm certainly not knocking the value of forums so that people can better understand the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of the car.

The reason for this particular thread was to lift us out of the gloom 馃槂
