    A few people have complained of performance degradation in cold temps. Ours does not have the issue, so it must be a fluke with some builds.

    Again, not all of us experience this. We've driven ours in below 0 temps and it still performs as expected.

    Or you just don't notice it, which is what I'm betting. Get out your stopwatch and you'll be shocked. Go ahead and try it and see what's up.

    So you say...show us a video. It's actually harder to seat-of-the-pants than you think.

    Literally everyone who has actually done this, reports the same. I do not trust human perception for beans.

    Sure, I will in a month or so when it gets down there again. But, I'll guarantee it's not a 10 sec 0-60 vehicle in the cold. You should have yours checked.

    Honestly the VW could use a bit more power also. I feel like the R-Line should come with the non b-cycle 2.0T like they use in many other vehicles. It has a few different variations in power but something closer to the 250 HP mark would make a world of difference IMO.

    Post your video, and then I'll "have mine checked". What should they check, exactly? Nothing is wrong with it to check.

    Realistically is the fuel consumption decrease on the Turbo a huge amount over say 8 years of driving?

    Well, the obvious would be something with your turbo.

    Nothing is wrong with the turbo. It runs just fine above 20*F, and this is a problem which everyone who has a 2.5T from Mazda who has actually put one on a clock has. Including one of the techs at the dealership on his personal CX9. It's just a Mazda tune quirk. SavageGeese says they know about it, I believe, but didn't elaborate.

    So, you think all CX-9's have this too? Why hasn't there been a huge outcry then? A lot of people who own CX-9's and CX-5's with the turbo live in cold climates. They even introduced the CX-5 Sig in Canada when it was snowing. I didn't see/hear of anyone complaining of it then. I think SG may have experienced something, but I don't remember him claiming it happened 100% during his test drive. There may be some environmental issue going on, but it is not as widespread as you are making it out to be.

    Post your video, then we can we-address it.

    Also keep in mind that you think yours is 100% good to go, so when you post your video, if you see 9-10+ second 0-60's, then you'll understand why there has been no huge outcry.

    Lol, here I am put-putting along in my Ď13 2 liter. Itís a perfect commuter, and it handles curvy hilly roads very nicely. Will it shoot up these tall hills in Northern Alabama? Nope. But it handles confidently and gets 32 mpg to and from work

    MPG is subjective to how you drive, how the terrain is, and how bad the traffic is. I am averaging 23.5 after 4000 miles on my 2019 Signature. On highways, in LA traffic, I get 23-25. I think I will get better on freeways in other cities with less traffic, and more flat terrains.
