    Yes both of my cars have MRCC (2014 and 2018) and they both downshift plus brake. Sometimes my 6 can downshift more than one gear which is frustrating, so on my commute where there is a small hill I...

    Yes it sounds like the O2 sensor is dead. You just need to change the pre-cat one and I suspect you're over 100,000 miles by now on a 2013? Average O2 sensor makes 120-150k miles max. Any O2 sensor...

    My tensioner leaked at 60k so all my belts were replaced at that time and they were honestly about half worn based on the indicator. I think these belts can safely make 100,000 miles if the tensioner...

    In our area Diesel is almost 30% more expensive than 87 octane gasoline, and our 2018 Touring AWD is getting close to 30 mpg. Do you think the diesel will achieve 39-40mpg? I don't. I'm sticking with...

    Did they change something for 2017? All the mazda vehicles prior run off the ABS reluctor wheel and do not have TPMS sensors. Are they now running wireless sensors instead?

    Aside from running on 87, it's not detuned. It's one of the rarest engines because it runs on sensors (not a table) at WOT. So it is always fine tuning itself on any tank of gas you may run. You will...
