Agreed. My plugs were just fine at nearly 80K miles, btw. My brake fluid had 3% moisture at around 97K. AWD diff fluid, I ended up getting a new diff at around 34K miles or so due to fording a stream. I never bothered to change it after that and it was fine. I had it checked around 80-90K miles or so and they said the fluid looked new and didn't recommend service.May need new spark plugs if those were never done. Coming up on the coolant change requirement (120k on the 2.5L?). You could drain and fill the transmission fluid, up to you if you agree with the lifetime spec or prefer to replace for peace of mind. AWD: see when the differential fluid was last serviced. Last thing to check would be accessory belt if that*s never been changed and the appearance of the water pump. Brake fluid flush would be great if that*s never been done too.
That*s all I can think of in the future for my 2013 (except for spark plugs, I changed mine at about 60k ahead of schedule). Very little maintenance required for these cars, mine is 2WD so even less to worry about). My Odyssey on the other hand..., lol.
I have just over 156,000mi/250,000km on my 2015 CX-5. No issues, but I did replace the battery last year because it was on its way out. Vehicle is oil sprayed every year since I live in the rust belt.
Otherwise, Ive done normal maintenance (oil changes, coolant flush at 125k miles, tranny flush every 60k miles) spark plugs, brakes and tires. I have front end links and new sway bar bushings that I will install shortly as the sway bar makes some clunking noises occasionally.
Have you had the vehicle since new? Have he transmission fluid changes just been draining the pan and refilling?
I hope you know that the SkyActiv transmission does not have the external lines to do a flush unless they are modded on.I have owned the vehicle since new and have been meticulous with maintenance.
Flushes for both transmission fluid and coolant. Always serviced at the dealership. For the price of the fluids, I cant be bothered just doing a drain a fill. Its easier and better to get a flush done so you know the fluid has been 100% exchanged. Its expensive, but given the price tag of a new engine or transmission, I believe it to be cheap insurance.

You should see how much fluid you were charged on your invoices. If it was around 4 qts, it was definitely a drain and fill.
Awesome! Good deal.Im good buddies with one of the mechanics there. They have adapters to complete the flushes through the dip stick and a pressure port. The last time I had it done he exchanged 12 quarts. I looked at my invoice again. It says Performed complete drain, flush-cycle and fill.
Drain and refills only for me... last time I had a flush on my '07 G35x I lost the transmission about a month later. Fortunately it was covered under my factory extended warranty on that rig. One of the few I came out ahead on. IIRC....$1800 but paid out almost $9K in repairs.
Transmission, steering rack and AC compressor.
Be that as it may, my fluid was out of spec at 71k miles.Drain and fill killed my G20, and introduced tq converter judder to my Jeep. 106k miles and never touched my last cx5 and zero transmission issues.
