    Can't find proper steel wheel for Kuhmo T165/90R17 T121 tire

    Befrore heading out on a North Rim of the Grand Canyon trip in a couple of weeks with my wife, I decided to replace the wimpy spare that came with my '19 GT-R. I want this Kuhmo tire based on the long thread here about suggested spares. So all the popular on-line dealers have the tire, but the...

    GT-R 2019 - Can't drive with only parking lights on?

    I work at an astronomical observatory and for the first time last night parked my car near the observing area. I am in the habit of always driving away from the area with no lights on if I can see enough, but at the most my parking lights. So last night, I switch my headlights from auto to...

    Well, that didn't take long... Rock damage

    I have a 4-week old CX-5 GT-R in Soul Red and last weekend, it took 3 hits from rocks in about 5 minutes. Two are pin head sized chips that I didn't bother to take pictures of, but the chip looks light gray so the paint may be entirely missing. The biggest hit happened at an oblique angle and...

    Mazda 247 not remembering my login

    Curious as to why this happens on this forum. I am a member of another forum that uses this same forum software and if I ask it to remember me it does, as do all my other sites. I am on a Win 10 machine using the latest Firefox. I have to type my login every time I come back. Is there a...

    New car, winter wash question

    Have a 10 day old GT-R. It has a dealer applied ceramic coating on it. Yes, it's an Armor All product, so we'll dispense with the comments about that. Regardless it's on there. I got the car just in time for winter weather. It snowed while at a movie last night and the city obviously applied...

    New CX-5 GT Reserve

    Just got her home today after yesterday's pick up in Tempe, AZ. She started with 5 miles on the ODO and now has a touch over 300. Car drove beautifully on the way home. Did find out after we got home an hour ago that one of our fobs doesn't work, even after a battery change. Didn't think about...

    Well, this sucks...

    Getting ready to head down to Phoenix next Saturday to pick up my new GT-R. We're driving our 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee down for trade in (maybe $1000). The car still runs fine and I go out in the driveway this AM to drive it to work to give our Prius a break and the left front tire is flat, I...

    When to buy conundrum

    Looking at buying a CX-5 Reserve in the next few weeks. Currently Mazda offers 0.9% financing thru Oct 31st and I would qualify for a $750 incentive. I was going to wait until Nov/Dec to see if the incentive and the dealer willingness to deal improve. The big question is on the 0.9% financing...

    Anyone bought a CX-5 when the closest dealer is 2 hrs away?

    Hi everyone. I'm new here, but have been lurking for a few weeks since my wife and I decided our first new car in 12 years will be a CX-5. In the next month or so, we would like to buy a Signature or Reserve, but the problem is that there is no Mazda dealer in Flagstaff, AZ. It closed down about...
