    It is for all cars, going through a car was can give swirl marks. The worst is when there are two or three guys with towels at the end who rub the car dry. Many people might not even notice the micro...

    In cold weather my car takes a long time to reach normal operating temperature, about 5 or 6 miles, but once it does it has good power. I drive sort of like a grandma until it reaches normal...

    Speaking of reliability, I don't know how reliable CR is, they have Porche as #4 and Honda at #12. In general I think Mazda is making very reliable cars and the odds of getting a good one is high.

    I haven't been bothered or notice the lack of lighting. But what I am surprised about in the sport trim is there are no vanity mirror lights. I think the visors are wired for them. I don't use the...

    $900. I washed it, parked it at the end of my driveway with a sign of the price and specs and an hour later a person randomly driving by stopped and bought it. I probably set the price too low.

    Maybe they will give you more than I thought, and you are right in the scheme of things $160 isn't much money. My '02 they offered $300 and I was sort of surprised at their offer, and I didn't take...

    You put $160 into that old car that they might only offer $300 for. So you might get $140 for your car, less than what you paid for the tires!

    The plastic nose of the car will hit any rocks way before the oil pan is hit (help) The CX-5 isn't a serious off road truck, it is mostly a foul weather paved road wagon. But if you want them, save...

    I use top tier fuel, but to be honest all fuel sold in the US has enough detergent in it. To make sure you get fuel with good detergent, stick to top tier stations. Octane makes no difference. But...

    That might be good in the summer too, to keep the sun out of the car, instead of an interior sun shade. It looks like it sets up fast.

    I checked my tire pressure for the first time today, because of the cooler weather. Three tires were at 30lbs and one was at 41lbs! I put 37lbs in all of them.

    I got used to pressing the lock button on the door as I exit, since it is hard to hear the car lock when pressing the fob and I rather not hear the horn beep by pressing the fob button again.
