    Interesting that the article lists MAZDA as the best car brand but HONDA as the best SUV brand. Wonder why this would be posted in the CX-5 Lounge which is an SUV, not a car....

    Great point. This has nothing to do with the CX-5. It got the award for the 3 and Miata, you know, Cars...

    Wonder how much they paid for that. I kid, I kid...

    Companies lose me when they list Ford as best anything. Too many admittedly anecdotal reliability issues I*ve come across personally and with friends. I just got done texting my dad about his 2017 F250 King Ranch diesel. 14k miles and the damn thing won*t start. Towed it to the dealer for 2nd time in two weeks. Looks like an electrical fault (option to start doesn*t come up when trying to start the truck: blind spot and cross traffic system faults pop up and that*s all she wrote). So desperate for a fix he*s asking if I know a solution.

    Good luck trying to get a 20-something at the service center to trace that down when they have plenty of non-warranty work waiting for them. Feel terrible about it especially after my Ford lemon back in 2012. Know exactly what he is going through.

    My point being a battery with Autozone brand or interstate with the same warranty is likely the same battery.

    Because the way this website is organized. The regular off topic lounge is a ghost town and gets zero play.
    Tons of topics that have nothing to do with the CX5 get posted in this lounge because it's the most active. The "main" lounge hasn't had a single post in some time.

    To be honest bro Iíve had 2 Mazdaís and Iíve rarely used the touch screen. The only time I touch it is when Iím parked and setting navigation. The scroll wheel is so much more efficient. Even still when I use touch screen itís responsive and fast. I was in my coworkers Volvo x60 and he was scrolling through his options and it felt like an iPad 1

    Tell him to Flip Over and Read Directions. Sorry, his truck was Found On Road Dead. Best advice you can give him is to get rid of the damn thing, unfortunately...

    Sucks to hear. Hope you get it figured out and running quickly...

    I think that is a way of C&D to spread their "love" around...

    Semantics, but.. the issue isn't with the way the website is organized. People simply post in the CX-5 Lounge because it's the most active, as you said. The CX-5 subforum also seems to be home to many of those with.. let's say, colourful personalities. Plenty of opinionated people who just want to be heard. This is a good and bad thing as you'll pretty much be guaranteed a response, but it may or may not be a helpful one.
