    Yep, I actually swapped them on when I did my last oil change. Good timing too, because snow came down a couple of days later. When I put the winters on, I noticed that I had some rock chips in the...

    In my CX-9, I did a 0-60 run in mid-October, when temps were at 1c (34F), and got a time of 7.8. I just did another 0-60 run at -9c (16F) and got a time of 9.0.

    It does appear that the engine...

    Here's Uno's 0-60 in 50f temp, cross-posted from another thread.



    Can someone with a CX-5 GT Reserve or Signature replicate the test and record the video?

    The VW Atlas takes a stab at the CX-9

    I just watched a YouTube ad, one of those 6-7 second jobs you're forced to watch before the video starts. There's some text that says something like "You know what you won't find on the CX-9?" then...

    I can try? I have the Torque app and a bluetooth OBD2 module. I just haven't played around with it much yet.



    I'm testing to see if this happens on my CX-9 as well. I did a 0-60 pull at -16c...

    Agreed. My wife's Civic has had the same snow tires for 10 years now (they sat in storage for 3 of those years). They're still good, but I do check them quite often for signs of rot. We'll probably...

    RDX and XC60 are 2-row, so the comparable Mazda would be the CX-5. The MDX and the XC90 are both more expensive, so I would expect better overall build quality and infotainment/tech. In my own...

    Could you imagine if the console was fixed and you have to slide the seat forward to access the 3rd row? Lol

    My guess is that it slides and flips forward, but who knows.

    x2 on file size. Resize the photo if you get the "upload failed" message.

    imgur is probably the easiest way to upload a photo though (see Chocolate's post above).
