    No, the dealer was awesome. Gave me $25K for my CX5 GTR, 2019 with 80K miles on it. It had 73K miles on it when we made t he deal, but 2 months went by. They didn't once try to change the deal. They sold me the Prime at MSRP+$149 doc fee. I bought Toyota warranty 10/125K for $2350. That was a...

    Ill need more time in it, of course, but so far I really like it. So far, vs my CX5 2019 GT Reserve: Power is instant and linear. I have not gone WOT in it or even close, because <300mi on it so far, but there is no lag. There is no delay. You press, she go. The CX5's have been some of the...

    How you doing?

    Well, time for an update on stuff over the last year... -I got out of the stock market. I put in roughly $2800 initially, and got out $9200 and change, minus taxes. I bought a high spec PVS14, helmet, mount, and paid the taxes, with my proceeds. Now I can shoot stuff at night in the dark. I...

    Just got home. I swung by the dealership and yes, they will pro-rate it, which means I literally broke even with it, plus saved myself hassle and stress. Total win!

    Yes, turbo. I only average 27mpg. That said, I've decided I want a rav4 prime xse, so my cx5's days are very numbered. My mind is made.

    I’m in a hurry to buy, sure, but if I can find what I want before year's end, I’ll be content.

    I am burning over $300/mo in fuel. I am preparing to transition into a rav4 prime xse to stave the bleeding as gas prices continue to rise. Any compelling reasons not to that I may have glossed over?

    Mazda CX-5 Vs. Acura RDX

    Yes, but some brands do not give the dealer that latitude. GM, for example, is known to send factory inspectors for many claims.

    Mazda CX-5 Vs. Acura RDX

    Mazda replaced my rear diff in my 2015 CX5 under warranty even though I had very obviously flooded it. They discovered it mid-way through the repair (I truthfully did not know I had), and they still paid 100% to handle it. $2800. I got a $0.00 bill. That played heavily in my decision to buy a 2019.

    The test was performed with a BMW M3, not a Prius as well, for context.

    CX-50 vs GV70

    If they drop a turbo 6, it better have 350hp or more. If they gave it a nice thick power curve with great torque, and focused on longevity and economy, I'd be content with 350hp. If they put it in any kind of "S" model or whatever though, it's going to need to be closer to 400+.
