    2017~2021 Disable power folding mirror?! - 2019 CX-5 Signature

    Anyone know how to turn off the automatic folding mirrors? I don't have a spot in the garage at the moment so my vehicle is parked outside. We just got an inch of snow and some cold weather through Cleveland this week. I went out this morning to drive to work and my driver side power folding...

    2017~2021 What is the best fuel for longevity of the 2.5 Turbo?

    I know Mazda says the car can run on either regular or premium octane. I'm not worried about the added HP or MPG. I'm more curious about which octane would help the engine/turbo last longer since I plan on driving this car for a long time. I also buy "top tier" gas and have been using Shells...

    2017~2021 Speedometer/Dash Screen Glitching ('19 Signature)

    Here is a link to what was happening on my drive to work this week: https://vimeo.com/368098693 Didn't seem related to vibration or anything. Happened a few weeks ago for my wife and then again a few days ago. It got even worse than the video shows for awhile and lasted about 15 minutes...

    2019 Sig Clicking Noise From Front End and Brake Squeal

    Any chance you can take some video/audio of the issue and link it here? I've not heard anything like what you described on my Sig.

    2017~2021 Mazda Sales.... Not So Good

    Mazda tops the list of auto manufacturers struggling to make money. I really hope they start gaining traction again. Some articles rumored Toyota buying them out. https://www.autoblog.com/2019/08/01/mazda-profit-disappointment-weak-sales-us-china/

    2013~2016 Machine Gray Chip Repair

    Pulled a bonehead move and while washing/waxing the new ride... I lifted my hood up while my wiper blades were lifted. Long story short I chipped the back of my hood with the metal wiper blade arm. I don't think it's down to bare metal, but I wanted some advice on chip/scratch repair. I dont...

    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    Rolling $6,700 into a brand new car would definintely mess with the LTV, like you said, that's above 120% LTV OTD not considering depreciation. Finance Managers have access ti LTV percentage guidelines that banks will accept, and maybe it didn't fall within' Chase's guidelines, but your credit...

    2019 Signature - Rear seat (driver's side) wobble/jostle

    Not sure how else to describe it. Basically I decided to sit behind the driver's side to check leg room and the seat jostles a bit when applying pressure (sitting) back. When I lean forward and back again I can hear a noise and feel it move slightly. The noise sounds hollow (and kind of cheap...

    What have you done to your CX-5 today?

    Nice!!! Looks great! I've only done cargo matts and a slew of detailing products so far. Did you order this all from your dealer or online?! I plan on getting some.of the same accessories (door will trim, splash guards). Could you send a link to the items you purchased? Thanks!

    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    Congrats on the new ride! Any penalty with the early lease turn-in or did they buy the lease out? I was debating on doing something similar but ended up keeping my lease (only had 2 more payments). When I called Chase they said I'd be penalized for turning it in more than 30 days before lease...

    Which fuel is better for 2.5 Turbo engine longevity?

    I'll have to check and see if I'm getting Top Tier, I think Shell is considered this? It's been awhile since I've had a car I didn't lease so I wasnt as concerned in the past 3 years. I'll have to double check if it's E-Free. Appreciate the feedback, thanks!

    Which fuel is better for 2.5 Turbo engine longevity?

    Awesome! Premium is almost $1 more in Ohio (in my area) and they just introduced a gas tax to increase the price further. I'll likely stick to regular then since I don't plan on racing it all the time. I always purchase Shell gas (don't belong to Costco) since I've read it's better than most...

    Which fuel is better for 2.5 Turbo engine longevity?

    Picked up a CX-5 Sig over the weekend. I understand using regular fuel (87 octane) will reduce the horsepower (I think to around 227HP) and using premium fuel (91-93 octane) will increase the horsepower up to 250. My question is, what is the best fuel for the longevity of the engine? My...

    What did you pay for your CX-5?

    Selling price is really good. Just playing devil's advocate here but are you getting a good value for your trade-in, as well? Dealers can low ball a trade-in and use that by discounting other areas of the deal. Like offering you $2k less than they would pay for your trade-in and putting some...
