You guys don't have warehouse style stores there? Here, at Costco you can get a battery for ~$75(US).
His CX-5 has i-stop which requires a special or bigger battery. Group 35 we usually get won’t work.

I traded in my 2017 GT =( It sucks because I loved the hell out of the car and expected to drive it into the ground, but I have 3 kids now so I needed a third row. Ended up getting a 2016 CX9 GT. Feels very similar to the CX5. I barely feel like I'm driving a third row vehicle.

I finally took my front door panels off to check out the buzzing speakers. I added some silicone caulk on the back side which I hope will reduce the buzz for good. My initial test passed. I can't believe it took me 3 years!!! I probably should have gone to the dealer to complain before my warranty expired! If you remove the door panels be sure to have some extra clips. I broke 3 on the passenger side, yet none on the driver side??

What model year of CX-5 do you have? (One of the bad things for new website, it won’t show member’s vehicle and location info; and much more hassle to do the search in a long thread with minimum forward and backward buttons.)

There’s a TSB on these Bose 9” door woofers for gen-1 CX-5. The revised woofers have better water-resistant protection so that it has less chance to develop rust which causes rattles. Although I had not heard any rattles as my volume usually kept at the minimum, but I showed the TSB to my Mazda dealer and they replaced both door woofers with revised ones before the new car warranty ran out.

Yrwei52, I have a 2016 GT. I did not notice any corrosion on the speakers although the door design does let water into the speaker area. I only noticed it with bass heavy music turned up loud which I do frequently. If it continues, I'll probably just replace the speakers themselves.
 
Installed a set of those 3D all weather front mats for my 2019 GT. From walmart online they came to $62 shipped. VERY happy with the purchase. The pricing was way too good to pass up.

Hi @yrwei52, you can set your vehicle and location information if you go to your Account Details. Click on your username at the top of the page, then click on "Account details". On this screen, about halfway down, there are two fields. The "L:" field is your location, and the "V:" field is your vehicle information. Note that there is currently an 18 character limit for each field. Click "Save" at the bottom of the page to save your changes, and you're good to go.

I believe you may also be able to edit what is currently underneath your username, but if not, you can send a message to @Antoine who can assist.

Thanks for the info. I guess I still prefer the old website where it’d show vehicle and location info underneath the user name automatically for each user if you’re in full desktop mode. Right now we have to go into a couple of levels in user detail to get such info.

The worse part on new website to me is to search posts in a long thread. It used to have several page jumping buttons to go forward and backward or in-between on pages, but now we can only go one page at a time, or the first and the last page.

Whatever you put in the L: and V: fields will show automatically under your avatar (see my info to the left for an example).

For the search result navigation issue, could you please PM Antoine with your concern? It's possible that he and enry could figure something out.

Love that last pic of the white car with the green reflections. Forms a really cool retro-50's color!

I see locations and vehicles. Here's a screen shot:

Maybe there's a setting in your profile that's not turned on.

But he should be able to see the info for others.

Or did they just add the data? Am I late to the party???

Changed oil, rotated tires, removed amd plugged a screw i found during rotation, used some vacuum/head cleaner, checked rear diff fluid and swapped my front brake rotors because I had apparently put them on the wrong side (directional).

I can’t see “L:” and “V:” fields beneath the Avatar on my iPhone in desktop mode but I could see them before on previous server. I can also see them on my Windows laptop. And why are the characters “L:” and “V:” displayed explicitly? Those seem to be bugs to me.

Gotcha.

Yeh, it seems as though those field labels were inadvertently displayed. The labels should not even be there so as to leave maximum room...the nature of the info is self-evident.

I have camped in my cx5 but I didn't put any kind of wood structure because wood is dangerous in a collision in such a small vehicle.

I guess I don't plan on cooking like than anyway but I have read people build these kinds of things using pvc tubing and fittings.

When I camp I install a 4' wire metal shelf across the top of the rear shock towers.

I put a Heatmate alcohol stove on the floor in the back seat area. Alcohol is the safest fuel as far as indoor pollution.
