- ‘21 CX-5 Sig
Yep. I’m keeping tabs to see if the issue ever ends up getting resolved.Yep I definitely agree that most people join online forums to find info/solutions regarding a problem they're having. The benefit comes from the owners who may be able to provide solutions, and who may be able to put the issue into a frame of reference.
Additionally, while online forums may not be the best way to find out how often a problem arises, they are a good way to find out what kind of problems people are having. As an example, previously the CX-9 had a low reliability ranking on CR for the 2016 MY. Hop on to a Mazda forum, and at the time most people were having issues with the infotainment. Someone worried about powertrain reliability would see that and probably get some relief from it.
You're right, it's tough to get a good cross section of all the people who own the car just from online forums, but if you combine it with other research/reviews, it can contribute to a better overall picture.
That limp mode issue sounds like a doozy. Are you a member on any of the Acura forums? Just curious, because if you are, I'd like to visit the forum you're a member of to see what other Acura owners were saying about your particular experience.
Here’s the link the the thread (it’s a long one):
