    Dead CX-5 battery and related problem

    Idk, you might get a ticket for speeding if they stay stuck.

    Have you weighed your CX-5?

    I'm curious about the real weight too. I find it hard to believe that it is as heavy as they publish.

    CX-5 Off Road Question

    I wouldn't go for a joy ride on an off road trail with my CX-5. I would go on gravel roads with minimal ruts and rocks to get to a fishing hole or exploring. The CX-5 has ridged low mud flaps, a low plastic nose, thin sheet metal. It isn't an off road SUV. It will go fine off road but expect to...

    2017~2020 Strange Oil Change problem - can't read the dipstick properly, low oil level warning

    You might want to check that oil is not leaking from the oil plug on the pan. There have been instances in which the dealer forgot to tighten it, or the crush washer 'broke'.

    CX-5 Bolt Question

    Can't you clean them up with a wire brush and reuse them?

    '16 CX-5 Sport 2.5L Drive Belt tensioner is leaking

    A few people had that issue. From my recollection the job didn't look that hard.

    Circles/squares on your Mazda are not for towing or pulling onto flatbed

    I didn't know there were tow points behind the front tires. Thanks.

    Circles/squares on your Mazda are not for towing or pulling onto flatbed

    As per this video, the narrator explains that the 'tow bar' access areas through the bumpers are not to be used. Ever. They were used for securing the cars while transporting them to the USA.

    New Car - When Should I really get my first oil change?

    I wouldn't wait to go 7.5k on the first oil and filter, but I guess people do wait that long. I suppose if one only plans to keep the car for 5 years or so then they can do minimum maintenance, the car will easily last 5 years.

    2019 CX-5 stuttering wipers

    That report describes a condition in which the wipers no longer move. Yours are functioning.

    Did Anyone Get A Tie Down Hook?

    I believe what yrwei52 says, it only makes sense to make the same part, unless one is made really cheap out of plastic. If an eyelet is strong enough to hold the car, why can't it be used for pulling the car? At what force will the frame bend? I can push my car without bending the frame on a...

    Did Anyone Get A Tie Down Hook?

    I find it strange that Mazda did not put anchor points on the car to use for recovery but put anchor points only for tying the car down. The tow hitch can be used for recovery on the back, for those people who have one.

    Extended Warranty - Turbo?

    "Well do ya punk?"

    Extended Warranty - Turbo?

    I never buy an extended warranty. My thinking is, if one is unlucky and got one of the cars that was made with defective parts or not put together right, the defects would show up under the factory warranty. But it's a gamble. Some defects will take a longer time to show up.
