Is the 2013 mazda cx-5 a good car in terms of reliability? Is there anything I should be looking out for in terms of repairs?

Petrol yes, diesel no. It all comes down to service history & how its been treated.

You would be starting out with a well designed vehicle. That's why we all own them. That being said:
We have a 2014 (bought new) with 28,500mi on it now. Two long road trips and my wife's daily driver (14mi a day). Regular oil changes, one complete brake job (all pads replaced and fluid flushed and replaced) and regular cleaning and waxing. It lives outside and still looks like new. Oh, and I reconditioned those damned plastic headlight lens' which were beginning to cloud up. No biggie. In short, it's not the age but the mileage and

2019 is extremely popular in its segment now. I went with a Hyundai Kona which is not as refined, but is about $2k cheaper if you look. I am enjoying a 6 mpg improvement going from compact to subcompact, but the CX-3 gets slightly better mileage than the equivalent Hyundai. Mazda is better engineered too, but the Hyundai is a pleasant surprise. IT reminds me of those late 1970s and early 1980s no nonsense Toyotas.

We recently got a 2013 with custom leather with 73k miles, great car, car quality feels great, interior is simple and Bose sounds system is amazing!. If you are looking for a used one, check for a well maintained car with a lot of records. There are a lot of leases and rentals out there.
