    I am not sure if it is me or what, but I go through lots of tires on this thing. This will technically be my 4th set of tires. The Toyo's (original), Duelers (2nd), Michelins (3rd) and whatever is next (looking to go cheap!).
    No, itís tires. Toyo A23、Bridgestone Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia、Michelin Premier LTXģ (I assume you use 225/55R19), those youíve been used / using all seem to have relatively lower treadwear rating on UTQG, or to be known for shorter tread life.

    Try this Radar Dimax AS-8 225/55R19 103V tire on your next set for $80+ each and itís recommended by Badgerbass after he tried.

    For serpentine belt and water pump belt replacement, you may want to replace the tensioner even if itís not leaking.

    You need 2 quarts of Mazda Long Life Hypoid Gear Oil SG1 as in addition to 0.45 quarts for front transfer case, the rear differential needs ~0.8 quarts instead of 0.45 quarts specified in ownerís manual.
    Thanks for the response.

    I tried to ask the dealer about the ATF change and have the cartridge change as well. It would cost around 500+... man that is expensive. It was never changed since new.

    For the belts. serpentine is around 44 and water pump belt is 20. but the labor of each is around 130.

    Prices are in Canadian dollars.

    Wondering if the oil change for the transfer and differential can be DYI.

    See post #295 just above your first post by ColoradoDriver. Do a search and thereís a ďHow-ToĒ write-up somewhere.

    I thought your 2013 CX-5 GT has 110K miles, but it could be 110K km (68,351 miles) since youíre in Canada. If your CX-5 indeed has 68K+ miles, IMO you should do the ATF drain-and-fill without ATF filter cartridge change at this time. At 68K, belt change may be a bit too early depending on the belt condition. Belt tensioner is an item easy to leak, make sure to check or replace that.

    If you change your oil by yourself, I believe you can do most of the fluid changes by yourself too with proper tools and good write-up found in this forum. ATF drain-and-fill should be the more difficult one because of the tight space to check the ATF level and ATF temperature needs to be known. Here are a couple of good write-ups for those fluid changes:

    Just hit 100K on our 2014 Touring. Replaced all 4 brake pads and rotors a couple months ago. Still need to do a trans drain and refill 3x. Haven't even looked at belts, should I be?

    The tires I put on at around 54K are wearing down already. Probably only get another 10K out of them. Will definitely be looking at lighter weight tires this next time around.

    My serpentine belt on my 2013 looked a little worse for wear with less than 70k miles. Iíd replace that on your 2014. It was easy to do by removing the passenger wheel as well as the shroud within that wheel well.

    The water pump belt was harder to replace but I found a nice zip tie trick. Do you have a 2 or 2.5 liter? I think only the 2.0 had a separate water pump belt. I can track down the pic of my zip tie trick if itís something youíre going to do on your own.

    Yeah you definitely want to check your serpentine belt, and the tensioner. The second water pump belt usually lasts longer.

    Iíd do the ATF drain-and-fill and filter cartridge replacement (definitely put the new one on the last if you do 3X) ASAP at 100K miles.

    What kind of tires do you have which last about 46K miles?

    2.5L has the second water pump belt too, and a balance shaft which is not needed on 2.0L.

    Didnít know we need to remove the RF wheel and shroud for belt replacement. Yes Iíd like to know the zip-tie trick for water pump belt without using a stretch belt removing tool.

    I see some very minimal cracks on the belt when I looked at it. Right now i am just tying to prioritized things to replace because of the expense.

    I have a 2 liter. Would really appreciate if you share the pic.

    Found it. Forgot I created a separate thread for it. Itís the first image attached to my post: https://www.mazdas247.com/forum/show...t-zip-ties-FTW

    Having the wheel and shroud off was pretty much a necessity for the water pump belt. Need to turn the crank to get it on the pulley. It made the routing the serpentine belt so much easier. Thereís not a whole lot of room to do that from above.

    Nice write-up and would save me some cash getting a useless stretch belt installation tool for the water pump belt replacement.

    Chris_Top_Her should move your write-up to ďHow-ToĒ section.

    There is a filter for the transmission located within it. To replace it would require dropping the pan, popping out the old cartridge, installing a new cartridge, and reinstalling the pan. You have to apply a silicone gasket to the pan to reinstall.

    Itís not called for in the owners manual nor is replacing the transmission fluid. Iíve done the transmission fluid but still not sure if Iíll bother with the filter. Itís probably more of a boulder catcher type material than a fine filter. Iíd be more interested in cleaning any sludge that might be present on the magnet in the pan, but of course that requires dropping the pan. Might as well replace the filter if youíve dropped the pan I suppose lol.
