    Which part is "outdated" exactly? He might be outdated in a sense that he looks at cars from the "owner's" perspective in times when the whole market is geared towards a "consumer" with everything being disposable, but other than that - in genera - he actually makes some good points.

    Guess you never saw his SkyActiv video where every criticism he levied against it was based on pre-SkyActiv Mazdas and not the actual SkyActiv Mazdas. He shat all over the CX-5 using what was obviously a story about an old CX-7 as his basis for calling the CX-5 crap. Very misleading.

    As for this video, how about incorrect information like claiming they use Jatco transmissions?

    You're correct - I haven't watched his SkyActive video - nor I really care to. I could probably make one of my own explaining why the whole Skyactive thing is a pile of bullocks. The 2 cylinders de-activation - 2 out of 4!!!! - on the last gen CX5 - is an idiotic nonsense which goes against all engine design principles. Scotty might be full of $hit and he makes mistakes, but his logic is solid.

    You can thank the government for that. It is how a car company complies with the strict emissions standards that get tougher and tougher each year. Other manufacturers such as Honda and Toyota try to comply by using a tiny motor with a turbo charger. Honda also has some models with cylinder deactivation. I am sure Toyota will have it soon too.
