So i fitted a Sabat 649 stop start battery at R1350 because the oem battery was kaput and continuesly i was getting battery management error.
1. I had to reset the windows one touch power down and up for all windows.
2. Set the clock again and that is it.
3. ISTOP reset itself and is working again after a few days of the wife driving the car as she daily's it.

Car also received a new set of tyres in oem spec even though i wanted to fit 235/55/19 but budget would not allow.

Still happy with thr CX-5.
Happy motoring

Yeah, it has full franchise service history.

Any concerns with breakdowns at higher mileage with these cars?

From what i heard no issues with that motor and it has extra oomph plus the individual spec has extra features.
Check its service history that all maintenance is up to date and Where are you buying it, link to ad?
