    Oooookay.

    I*m going to check out of this forum for a while. You try to make an honest suggestion and you get an unfounded *Buy a $50 Chinese tire* line in response. Whatever.

    Peace.

    No offense taken, but name any tire maker and you're going to find massive litigation. Worker safety, car accidents, you name it and you'll find a lawsuit against any major company. In researching...

    My mother-in-laws 2018 gave the same warning at 11k miles. Got us to a service center right away lol! In her case the PCM needed to be updated as a sensor was reading too lean after the catalytic...

    Most here use 0w-20 oil as that is the North American specification for the non-turbo engine. People love the Mazda Or Idemitsu Moly oil. I use whatever I can get cheapest with rebates. To date I*ve...

    AWD may be coming to the 6 with the inline 6 Skyactiv-X platform based on their annual performance reports. Unfortunately it likely won*t have a third pedal if their current line up is any indicator...

    Thanks for summarizing that so well!

    I've visited Huntsville, AL twice in the last couple of months. The joint Toyota-Mazda plant there is a big talk of the town. With Toyota's lean manufacturing...

    You're absolutely right. EV's are the future. However, they are still subsidized = not ready for prime time. 10+ year old Toyota Prius vehicles are now requiring replacement batteries for a couple...

    YES!

    I think I might hold out for the in-line 6 Skyactiv X in the Mazda 6. It*ll be a few years but the CX5 is just broken in :D

    That would be too long an interval for me. At 7 years 70k my original brakes still had life in them. 3 years is a very good rule of thumb. You really don*t water ruining the ABS components over the...

    I read somewhere the rear doesn't need the caliper tool if equipped with the electronic parking brake (thread somewhere here?). It's my understanding that there is no need to rotate as you push down...

    I installed a cheap aftermarket rear bumper cover from Ebay. The CX-5 sticker on it is pretty underwhelming. The listing made it look like a piece of metal but alas, its a sticker that isn't adhered...

    The lack of rear legroom is a downright dealbreaker for me with the 3. The Corolla has Camry like rear legroom compared to the 3. It*s so cramped that the Skyactiv-X engine wouldn*t be enough to sway...

    Oil changes every 5000 km is excessive. 5000 miles is the minimum I would go between oil changes and even that is fairly frequent. You shouldn*t need anything besides oil changes and tire rotations...
