The 2018 Mazda CX-5 OBD port is located beneath the dashboard, on the left lower side of the driver’s seat.
Look below the lower left side of the driver’s seat area. The OBD port on a CX-5 is located below and behind the hood release and gas cap lever. That’s where you can plug in your OBD scanner to look for car OBD codes that could indicate a serious issue.
If you’re shopping for a used Mazda, you might want to check with your local Mazda dealership. They may have inventory that includes certified pre-owned vehicles. These cars are more reliable than the used cars sold by private sellers.

Does a 2008 MINI Cooper have Bluetooth?
I recently inherited a 2008 Mini Cooper from my grandfather. It’s my first car, and it’s a lot older than either of my parent’s cars (which are what I learned to drive in), so I’m still having some trouble adjusting. I’m especially struggling to figure out how to connect my phone to the car. The 2008 Mini Cooper has Bluetooth, right?
