    i traded her in... for this.












    lol, just kidding. but it is my 5 replacement for a while.

    i took her into the dealership for an oil change and tire rotation. i also test drove a new speed3. i liked it. (black, so it hides the smile )

    anyways, i get a call while im driving the speed saying there is something with the 5's transmission. so i had to cut my fun short and return to the dealership. they tell me that the transmission is leaking fluid. (forgot exactly where) luckily, it wasnt a lot, and there was still plenty of fluid left so there was no damage. i told them that i didnt see any puddles, but they said that it was all over the outside of the transmission and that it was pooling on the shielding that protects the underside of the engine.

    so, now i have this crappy focus for 3 days. they said they have to take the transmission off, and reseal everything. basically it is just some bad seals from the factory. i guess they have seen a few 5's with this problem.

    thank god for still being under warranty! this is the second warranty fix now in the 1.6 years. first one for for a squeaky drivers door window. they had to replace the motor on that one. luckily, mazda is giving us the rental for free as well. woot!

    New Zoom Zoom stickers on rear windows, placement should have been on the very rear corner but what is done is done.

    it was only going to be as straight as the transfer paper it came on as I lined that up with the bottom edge of the window.
    Had the paper been cut crooked the stickers would have as well, thanks to Barry for a job well done on the labels.

    Before



    After



    All I wanted the carbon fiber kit was to mask the silver plastic on the dash, not for the glove box and air vents and cup holders

    It's not much, but it's a start.

    What I did to my mazda5 today:

    I experimented with my MAZDA5's throttle by wire. googled
    for 'throttle by wire calibration'.

    I found this thread from a non-mazda forum:
    http://caliberowners.co.uk/index.php?topic=1792.0


    1. First I followed exactly the procedure in the thread i.e. pedal
    all the way to the floor.
    -- Result: "Maybe the result is just in my imagination. But
    There seems to be a 'change in feel'. Or 'the car
    reacts to the gas pedal differently this time'.

    2. Then I thought: "What If I press the gas pedal only halfway"?

    -- Result: Definitely a 'new feel' is experienced.

    I don't know what is the use for it though. But it does make the
    mazda5 continously interesting.

    That's is interesting...does it matter if Manual or Automatic transmission?
