Your responses drip of attitude. I know resetting the ECU on my 2014 Ford Mustang improved performance (acceleration at wot and mpg) but have not tried it on my CX-5. Has so little hp cannot imagine it would help much.I just watched the video.
No. That's not going to restore your car to being faster. I call bullshit. The guy in the video says you should reset the ECU every "few 1,000 miles" (wtf) beause it becomes sluggish over time as the car learns how you drive. Resetting will return the car to it's like new and peppier self.
If I already drive spiritedly and the car learns that, resetting would set me back then,no?
My car is not one ounce slower then the day I bought it. Going on 2 years.
You think yours is sluggish now? Guessing not.
Here's the thing though, OP: if it's really that easy, just do it already. It certainly doesn't hurt a thing.
And report back.
I was always told pulling the battery cable is how you reset it, also very easy.
In the time it took you to post, you could have done it. Not trying to be a dick but if it's really "press the brake 20 times" and the rest of that: just do it.
