    I recall Dave Coleman talking about the windshield wipers being set to "on" as one of the indicators the CX-5 uses to determine AWD needs. Just to eliminate the one simple thing we can control as...

    The worn tie rod ends in my '14 made an exceptionally loud clunk that I could feel in the foot well.

    Just replaced the rear wiper. Bosch Spectrum DirectFit R1416 was an exact fit for my gen 1.

    I hope you're right. The lack of HP bump at 5,250 RPMs suggests either A. The turbo runs out of steam, or B. Mazda bleeds off the boost at higher RPMs. Fingers crossed for B.
  6. 2020 CX-9 gets a 10 ft lb bump in torque with 93 octane

    Curious to see if the CX-5's 2.5T gets the same.

    Yep, Motorweek's longterm RAV4 Hybrid is seeing 39.7 mpg over the course of 7,000 summer miles. A 13-14 mpg advantage isn't enough to compensate for the uninspiring driving experience in the RAV4.

    The RAV4 Hybrid's MPG rating is impressive, but has anyone seen real world results yet?

    Less knock/pre-ignition. It uses the knock sensors to determine the octane in the tank. It dials back on the ignition when it senses knock. If you're running 93 it won't cause knock, and therefor...

    To be fair, I've never loaded a tune from a laptop. I'm more of a mechanically inclined person. Someone with more of a tech background may disagree and say the downloaded tune is the easier way to go.

    Correct. It's plug and play. Very simple for an enthusiast to install and uninstall. No laptop or technical support required. In my opinion, the ideal setup for anyone looking for a conservative bump...

    As useless as paddle shifters seem on a CUV, I would like them for the purpose of occasional downshift control. Primarily when approaching a corner or off-ramp, just to settle the chassis a little....

    Yeah, my rough calculations showed it would be about a $1 a day difference based on my mileage. My right foot might justify it if it notices a difference.

    Just to confirm, you were saying that torque peak is not a good indicator of acceleration, right? I was supporting your argument. As for the acceleration numbers, we still don't have an 87 vs 93...

    According to Car & Driver the 2.5T equipped CX-5's shift at 5,300 RPM's. So the benefit of higher octane fuel is experienced from roughly 4k - 5.3k, which is a good portion of the RPM range during an...
