Since a member said he talked to his Mazda dealer and been told there's no tire pressure sensor with wheels for 2017 CX-5, I called my Mazda dealer from overseas trying to verify. Well, at least for US/NA market, there's tire pressure sensor with valve stem on each wheel for 2017 CX-5:
Part No.: BHA4-37-140 List $91.74 Each!
Now I'm really puzzled why Mazda made this change at least in US/NA market for 2nd-gen CX-5 as apparently in some areas the pressure sensors don't exist for their TPMS like the 1st-gen CX-5. There's no added benefit to have tire pressure sensors at current TPMS setup in 2nd-gen CX-5 without direct-read tire pressure display like Nissan Rogue other than expensive maintenance cost. Imagine how much more it'd cost for extra set of winter wheels with snow tire? And how much more it'd cost when we're getting a new set of tires?
Here's an example of direct-read tire pressure display TPMS utilizing tire pressure sensors on Nissan Rogue:
Yeah, that is one thing my Acura TSX Wagon had that I miss on the new CX-5. TPMS is not completely useless as Mazda deployed it, but nearly so.It*s a mystery that why Mazda doesn*t provide individual tire pressure info in dash or infotainment like everybody else with direct-read TPMS system when gen-2 CX-5 switched to such system * (uhm)
It'll be rolling out soon enough on all models. Just like with AA/ACP, Mazda is a little behind the rest.It*s a mystery that why Mazda doesn*t provide individual tire pressure info in dash or infotainment like everybody else with direct-read TPMS system when gen-2 CX-5 switched to such system * (uhm)
