Yesterday the Twin Cities area of Minnesota experienced our largest same-day snow event in 8 years. Officially 12.4" of relatively wet, heavy snow which started around 10am. Our business released us early and the commute home was 'interesting'. Wife and I took the CX-5 and I'll have to say it performed splendidly with no vices whatsoever using the OEM 19" TOYOs.
The stock wipers also performed adequately. We didn't notice any icing until almost home about 60 minutes later. Snow was coming down about 2" per hour and MSP airport was forced to close all 4 runways twice that day.
I'm appreciative of the heated area of the lower windscreen as it does seem to keep the buildup of snow/ice to a minimum in that area.
Costco sells Michelin blades here in Canada at least that claim to work on the 2017 CX-5. Has anyone tried those?
What model? The ones I tried at Wal-Mart we're the Optimum-XT. They were terrible.The OEM blades weren't stellar on the 2018 this morning. I had to pull huge chunks off off the blades when I got to work. Has no one tried the Costco Michelin blades or are those not available south of the border?
Shouldn't be long before you can test them out in Chicago, eh?
Please let us know how they perform.
