    With such few miles, and rust in those areas, I*d be concerned about a flood vehicle. The 2012*s were a well sorted car. Only problem areas should be transmission and rear shocks.

    How old is the battery? If its original, it is at least 5 years old. That is old enough to start having problems. If it's turned up dead a couple of times already, I would change it out. Cheap...

    Throw the housings in the over for 10 minutes at 200°F, and they will pretty much peel apart. To get them back together, gently place the lenses onto the back housing, back in the over for 10...

    Being in Canada, you have to weigh the rustiness of the car vs. cost of maintenance items. If $1000 will get you to next March or April, then it might be worth it. $1000 over 8 months works out to...

    Kuda, nice. I like the Kuda in our 2012 CX-9. Places the phone in an optimal location, in my opinion.

    Well done, dear sir! Using your “how to”, I was able to complete a drain and fill on the wife’s CX-9. Not sure it’s even been done before, but now that I know how it’s done I can stay on top of it....

    Sounds like something in the linkage broke. Need to get under the car and check it out.

    I would do brake fluid every two years, only because it sucks moisture out of the air, which cause the temperature sensitivity to go out of whack.

    AT fluid should be a 50-60k miles change,...

    Will probably be more trouble than its worth - completely different engine designs. I would go the junk yard and look for a similar vintage Mazda3 engine.

    H&R for the Mazda5 are good. Can't really compare with the Miata application.

    For struts, I would go with the B6 on the stock springs, or B8 for the H&Rs.

    I would replace the strut mounts for...

    The springs and Bilsteins will make the car handle amazing. To save a little bit, you might skip the sway bars and see how the springs and struts work out. It would be very simple to add the rear...

    The H&R springs should be modest for drop, and not add too much camber. There might be enough adjustment in the stock alignment bolts to correct any additional camber.

    The B4 struts are a stock...

    You can fit the B8 dampers from the 2013 Mazda3. Those will work much better with the H&R springs.

    I would change the Konis out for Bilsteins, and go with the Racing Beat sway bars. Should be a nice set-up.

    Don't go crazy with the high pressure water, and you should be fine. All sorts of water spray goes into the engine bay when driving in the rain anyway.
