    Are you content with 19” Toyos or replacing them ASAP?

    Just wondering what owners with 2019-21 models with 19” wheels and tires think of their stock tires and are you “sticking“ with them? I bought a 2019 Signature and my lease will be up in early 2022. There were a lot of complaints about the 2019 Toyos at the time so I had the dealer upgrade to...

    Did Signature brown leather change betweeen 2019 and 2021?

    I have a 2019 Signature with dark "Caturra” brown leather. I saw a mention that the new leather colour is slightly lighter/different tone? Has anyone had the chance to compare?

    2023 CX-5 AND CX-50 to be released?

    So the rumor-mill (on Google and YouTube) has it that Mazda will release both a new CX-5 and CX-50 in the same 2023 model year. One would be very similar to the existing CX-5 and the other larger, RWD and inline six, aimed to take on the luxury brands. Seems a little far-fetched to me but what...

    2019-21 CX-5 infotainment screens

    Interested in comments on the quality and utility of the interface on the 7” 2019, 8” 2020 (in Signature) and 10.25” 2021 screens. Does bigger in each case mean better?

    Black paint on CX-5?

    When I was getting my CX-5 mirrors fixed yesterday, I looked around at the other paint colors. My 2019 lease is Machine Grey. On the lot, I thought the all black model looked sharp. I've had black cars in the past so I know all about the problems keeping them clean. But I just wondered if...

    Mirrors not folding completely

    Before I call my dealer, I wondered if anyone else had this problem. I have a 2019 signature and just noticed the folding mirrors are only partially closing. Any easy fix?

    What does 10 lb-ft of torque get you?

    Curious about the small torque boost in the 2020 turbo. What’s the benefit? Better 0-60, faster off the line? Or ???

    2019 HUD with Polarized Sunglasses?

    I have a 2019 CX-5 and find that my polarized sunglasses dim down the HUD a lot. I read one review which claimed the new Mazda 3 HUD was a lot better in this, but would like to hear some real life feedback from people here.

    Strange Traffic Sign Recognition Readings

    I think the Traffic Sign Recognition is a handy tool though it misses things like school zone speeds etc. What's just happened to me, though, I can't explain. The speed limit indicator is giving me totally random (and incorrect) numbers eg 19 km/hr in a 30 zone or 37 km/hr in a 60 zone. I...

    BSM brightness?

    I find the blind spot indicator in the mirrors fairly inconspicuous, especially in bright daylight. I didnt see a brightness adjustment in settings. Is there one?

    No GloveBox Light etc. on Canadian Signature?

    Just got the 2019 Signature in Machine Grey and generally love it. I think the Canadian model has cheaped out on a couple of things parking sensors, 360 camera or glovebox light. I had a glovebox light on my 1996 Integra. Anyone (especially Canadian owners here) have an explanation?

    Next CX-5 FMC?

    What are the best guesses for the release of the third generation CX-5? From what Ive read, Generation 1 (MY 2013) was unveiled at the LA show in November 2012, and Generation 2 (MY 2017) at the November 2016 LA show.

    What to expect from a touchless car wash?

    Close to buying a 2019 CX-5. In an ideal world, Id hand wash my car twice a week, and apply or reapply Maguires. But in my real world without a lot of free time, I like to keep my car clean and looking nice so I run in through a good touchless car wash. What can I expect as a result on the Mazda...
