    My apologies, I don’t have a Discount Tire location near me, I ordered from Discount Tire Direct, to be shipped to me to take to an installer. Sorry for the confusion!

    Tire recommendations needed for 2016.5 CX-5 GT AWD

    Yeah, I had printed it out and showed it to my service advisor. Wasn’t really interested in taking a look at it and told me there wasn’t a problem, just wear. Rear pads and rotors, at a cost of $490.00 for them to do it. When I get my tires, I’ll have the installer take a look and give me a...

    Tire recommendations needed for 2016.5 CX-5 GT AWD

    Awesome, I think I've settled in on the LX25s. Again, thank you so much! Just waiting for a deal right now, until then my car gets parked in the driveway. One tire this morning (before I took it in for my 30K service at the dealer) was at 6 PSI, and I'm noticing I can peel the rubber off that...

    Tire recommendations needed for 2016.5 CX-5 GT AWD

    Thank you so much for your help (and everyone else!) After going through the options, I've keyed in on the Continentals. I do believe in spending more for quality tires, plus I'm really looking to retain as much as the dry handling characteristics from stock as possible. Would you happen to...

    Tire recommendations needed for 2016.5 CX-5 GT AWD

    Hello all, Long time since I've posted here. I hope all of you and your families are doing well and staying healthy! I am going in to my local Mazda dealer for my 30,000 mile service with my 2016.5 CX-5 Grand Touring All Wheel Drive. Due to the pandemic, I'm quite a bit overdo for service...

    ...That's why we want AA/CP, chief.

    New AA \ ACP Thread (with Poll)

    Well, Toyota just announced that they will be offering CarPlay in the US on 2019 MY vehicles with EnTune 3.0, coming to US dealerships in Spring 2018. I don't know much about the Mazda/Toyota partnership, or whether that forebodes well for Mazda or not. But I do know that this leaves Mazda all...

    Any SiriusXM opinions?

    HD Radio on FM stations sounds a million times better than Sirius, which isn't saying much about HD Radio tbh. The programming on the stations I enjoy became hyper repetitive about 3-4 years ago (so, no different than FM sans commercials). Stern Show is lame these days. I can make a better music...

    Toolbox cannot connect to server error

    You wouldn't happen to have a Mac that's on the latest point release of Sierra, would you? (10.12.6) If so, it doesn't work. This happened the last time Apple had a point release of Sierra (10.12.5), the Mazda Toolbox app just stopped connecting to the server, and it took about a month or two...

    Bad luck continues with my 5-month old 2016.5 CX-5

    Hey all! I was the guy who posted a couple of weeks ago about someone hitting my car in a parking lot. I was able to get most of it detailed out at a cost of $100, although a small paint chip and some scratches on the unpainted black portions of the bumper remain...

    Someone scraped up my 4-month old 2016.5 :(

    Detailer charged $80, and I tipped another $20. I was figuring around $100 anyway

    Someone scraped up my 4-month old 2016.5 :(

    Update: Detailer was able to get 99.8% of it out. Only thing that's left is a small nick that's really hard to see, where the paint is actually nicked. I could try covering it with the OEM paint pen, but overall I'm very happy with the results. I have to see if I can get some of the marks off...

    Someone scraped up my 4-month old 2016.5 :(

    Thank you all for your advice and helpful comments. I'm feeling a lot better about it now! I examined it more closely in the sunlight yesterday. I noticed that if I rubbed what looks like that deep scratch on the right, it starts to come off. Since I have no idea what I'm doing with car body...

    Someone scraped up my 4-month old 2016.5 :(

    I'm really not sure. When I move my finger over the affected areas, it feels raised/rough in nature, rather than nicked. I think the big spots of white are paint transfer, those two white lines *might* be scratches, but I'm really not too sure. I can try to take better pictures outdoors. I have...

    Someone scraped up my 4-month old 2016.5 :(

    Happened while I was parked for literally 20 minutes. Quickest one of my vehicles has gotten ruined. My question is, does this look like it can be buffed/detailed out? Or am I going to need paint/body work? I'm not too knowledgable about auto body

    vs Forester?

    I should add that Subaru also seems to be having a quality problem with the 2.5i motor where some are burning through oil really quickly. Doesn't happen to everyone, but it's a noted issue.

    vs Forester?

    All I know is, I have a 2016.5 CX-5 GT AWD. A family member owns a 2015 Forester 2.5i Premium. There is a very prominent difference in noise levels on the highway from my experience. If the numbers do not support my experience, that's fine, but it's something I have experienced and have also...

    vs Forester?

    One thing I didn't see mentioned is that, combined with the cheap interior, the mostly-glass enclosure, while it makes it like a neat little sunroom, introduces SO much wind and road noise. The noise levels of the Forester at highway speeds annoy me as you cannot have a conversation with someone...

    Carplay and Android Auto coming soon? Crossing fingers..........

    How, exactly, did they misrepresent anything? Mazda the company has never mentioned anything regarding AA/CarPlay availability in the US/Europe before they did so yesterday. Are you talking about the dealer? Because the dealer will tell you anything to get you to buy the car. That's their job. I...
