    2019 CX5 Recall-Rocker Arm Concern=SOFTWARE DONE BUT NOW THE CX5 FEELS MUCH SLOWER

    Hey guys, I had the Recall #3719F software fixed yesterday done on my 2019 CX5. It took about 45 minutes.

    Anyone else had the fix done?
    I noticed that the CX5 is not as much fun to drive anymore as it was before the fix. Also, I noticed that at take off, if I give a lot of gas, there's a huge delay before the vehicle responds. It feels almost like a turbo lag, however my CX5 has no turbo.

    It sucks because the vehicle always felt like fun to drive it.

    Is it me?

    Please let us know if anyone else experiences similar issues after the fix.

    If your car is responding so poorly, bring it back to the dealership. The program has nothing to do with performance. All it does is, doesn't allow the oil pressure to the valve train drop. Your dealer might have messed something else up.

    ECU disconnect/reset will default to learning mode which should become more responsive after 50 or more miles of driving. Drive it hard for a while to relearn performance.

    Op ---> Your car needs to re-learn. Redline the crap out of your car.

    I'll try. I never have abused any of my cars, always babied them.

    I'll will.


    Thanks for your responses guys. I really love the CX5, its my third one.
    My other vehicle is a 2019 Honda CRV. Love it but the CX5 is much more fun to drive.

    I'm gonna drive the CX5 tomorrow, put some miles in it and report back.

    Thanks
