    Arrow A Few Surprises from US 2018 Mazda CX-5

    I have had 2 instances where it was left open accidentally and I come back to a pool of water/leaves and all other crap. Now - I have a tape on the steering wheel reminding me to double check. Resulted in pretty expensive interior detailing in 1 case. My friend (same CX-5) had it 100 times bad when a group of squirrels entered. Guess what they did with the leather/etc.
    I believe Gen-2 CX-5 started to provide power for 30 seconds after you shut off the engine so that you have a chance to close the windows and moonroof by triggering the power switches “manually”. But I’ve never tried it so I could be wrong. On the other hand I’m pretty sure 2018 CX-5 won’t do “auto” close on any of the power moonroof and power windows when you switch off like your dealer stated.

    Yeah I have also had a couple of incidents that the rain water got into the cabin when I left he moonroof tilt-open. These incidents actually make me using the moonroof a lot less.

    My 2017 cuts power to everything when you turn off ignition which is really annoying imo. Ford keeps it on for a few minutes or until you open the door.

    Love it! Reminds me of the time when I had a Mazda 6 diesel and the turbos kept failing. (All fixed under warranty). I had an open top BMW Z4 tailgating me, so dropped down into 3rd gear and the plume of black smoke enveloped the BMW. He stayed back after that.

    I can confirm that the windows will close without the auto function for a short while after the ignition is off but that it doesn’t apply to the sunroof.

    Keeping the power on for 30~45 seconds is a feature most vehicles have nowadays. This’s from 2017 Mazda CX-5 Owner’s Manual on page 3-37 but I have seen people were saying there’s no such feature like you’ve found out on your 2017 CX-5. There's certainly no such feature on my 2016 CX-5 although my 2016 CX-5 Owner’s Manual also made the same claim on page 3-33 in Engine-off power window operation section.

    · The power window can be operated for about 40 seconds after the ignition is switched from ON to ACC or off with all doors closed. If any door is opened, the power window will stop operating.
    For engine-off operation of the power window, the switch must be held up firmly throughout window closure because the auto-closing function will be inoperable.

    I cannot believe they expect me to pull up on a switch for 4 seconds. Mazda sucks.

    That’s if you can find the switch in the dark.

    Why can't they make it voice controlled? They already have VR and have the ability to name the windows. Problem solved.

    Right next to the lighted one.....????

    Don't get me wrong, the auto up/down would be nice for more than just the driver window, but my god it's not the end of the world some would make it out to be.
