    I will check the price on the parts and will let you know.

    Interesting. I think Mazda should consider covering it under the powertrain warranty.

    Completely agree. Would help some. Not me, mine was replace around 70k miles. Now I periodically inspect the new one to see if it is leaking at all.

    But it does seem to be a problematic part for sure. Curious if the Gen 2's have an improved tensioner?

    Parts were $194 and labor was $195. The tensioner was $136. They replaced the belts too.

    I heard the new 2019 Mazda8 has the new 8.8 inch screen and is Linux based. Comes with Carplay/Android auto of course.

I still think that is stupid, especially a part that is leaking at only 41K miles, but whatever I wouldn't be able to fix it on my own anyway. The car does feel better to drive after though. Getting close to getting the CX-5 paid off which is exciting!
    I got the belt tensioner covered under warranty for my 3rd gen Mazda6 recently. For future reference, contact Mazda USA first prior to getting warranty work denied at local dealer. These tensioners are known to leak in higher rates in Mazda6's than in CX-5's. Then again the dudes that I know own 3rd gen Mazda6's drive their car very hard. Including myself.

    Saw a brand new Blazer on the highway today. It looked very aggressive in person. Also the oem wheels were a good size/tire profile and offset. The way it sat looked more like tasteful aftermarket than OEM.

    The Blazer looks good. The Durango looked good as well.
    I will probably never buy an American car, but I have to recognize, what is nice.
