    This I agree with. I think any new rotary will be nothing but a charger for an electric engine though. Mazda's days of trying to make that engine pass smog might be over. Hopefully not.
    Also, no more Mazdaspeed for some weird reason. It is now Mazda Motorsports.

    My dealer was already doing a major construction project on their location. Sales guy said it was a complete overhaul. Hope their service lounge is nice with some quiet areas.
    I usually bring a book and it's all but impossible to read with the TV blasting some inane morning show.

    LOL No worries. There is a forum regular with Ed in his name. Probably misread someone talking about/to him.

Iíve heard people here bash the new RAV4s looks(I happen to like the looks). If itís such a horrible looking vehicles, why canít dealers keep the RAV4 Hybrid in stock? Think maybe the hybrid power train has something to do with it? CX9 is the perfect example of what is wrong with Mazda. A nice looking SUV with no hybrid option and a cramped, dark, claustrophobic interior.
    Please identify the "better safety tech" you're referring to.

    The safety tech comment is false. Mazda has a laser and radar AEB system and strong IIHS performance, so not sure what you're talking about.

    Theyíre building the better product for most SUV shoppers, not for me necessarily. Iím single and an enthusiast, so CX5 would work for me. If I had a wife and kids Iíd get a RAV4 Hybrid. More space, way better MPG, like better long term reliability. No turbo or cylinder deactivation to deal with.

    They sure did rail-road the CX5-D through. Maybe they will manage it with rotary, but I kinda agree.

    Crickets. It is amusing to constantly push the Rav4 hybrid (?) on a CX-5 forum.

    When it comes to driving technology, both vehicles offer a full suite of optional active safety aids, including automatic emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane keeping assist. We like the CX-5's ability to use adaptive cruise control in stop-and-go traffic, but we find its blind-spot warning system hyperactive and hyper-vigilant, beeping wildly when the car in the next lane is two car lengths behind. We also each experienced an unnecessary panic brake from the system, something we've noticed in other Mazdas. The CR-V's collision warning system was also overzealous, blinking BRAKE in the instrument cluster far too often, but at least it only made noise if it was actually going to be a close call. When it comes to lane keeping systems, though, Honda's is clearly more advanced and more aggressive, doing its best to keep you in the center of the lane; the Mazda's doesn't engage until you're wandering over the line.

    All of the latest advanced safety features are available. The lane departure warning system emits a unique low-pitched buzzing sound that really gets your attention. The blind-spot monitor is overly sensitive, even triggering while you're passing vehicles several car lengths behind.

    Happy now? I haven't heard the same complaints about RAV or CRV.

    You haven't? Check out the Honda forum (we used to own a CR-V).

    ^^ Agree

    Example: I've read numerous posts on the CR-V braking for no apparent reason. I don't believe I've seen any on this forum, regarding the CX-5.

    The lane keep assist on my Ď19 gas RAV4 as well as blind spot monitoring is really good. Keeps me centered very well in my lane while on cruise control. Blind spot monitoring feels natural compared to my driving habits. I didnít realize how aggressive or panicky my mother in laws Ď18 CX-5 lane departure warning and blind spot monitoring was compared to Toyotaís safety sense 2.0. It actually gave me a little anxiety lol. Might have been able to adjust the sensitivity but I didnít want to screw with what she was used to.
