    Yes I did see it! Sad to say, I share some blame too as I voted for him and many Republicans in recent years. The power deregulation in 1999 simply let some big donors have opportunities making big money for short term, they’ve never considered spending more money for reliable power...

    Now you know replacing battery is a cheap way to resolve many weird electrical issues. ;) A friend of mine in Connecticut whose OEM battery in his 2003 Lexus LX 470 lasted 13 years and 100,000 miles at the time he sold the LX!

    Yes, I’m fully aware of that. After 3 hail storms in 5 years in last 10-year period, car insurance premium has jumped from ~$1,200 to ~$2,300 yearly for 3 vehicles mostly liability only on old cars with 2 major hail damages on our CX-5; homeowner insurance premium has gone up from ~$1,200 to...

    2018 CX-5 GT Ticking

    2.5L with cylinder deactivation started from 2018 CX-5 and Mazda6; but from 2019 Mazda3 only on higher trims. The 2020 TSB is specifically to air bubbles formed in the switchable hydraulic lash adjusters (HLA) which are found only in 2.5L with CD, so any 2.5L’s without CD on 2019-2020 Mazda3...

    Yes, I totally agree with the point by your local newspaper. In fact many Texas state legislators said exactly the same thing and are trying to do something about it. This winter storm has projected to be the largest insured loss in Texas history. And many believe the failed power...

    2018 CX-5 GT Ticking

    No, even thought the newer TSB includes 2019-2020 US spec. Mazda3, but it mentions air bubbles in switchable hydraulic lash adjusters (HLA) which are found only on cylinder #1 and #4 for cylinder deactivation. So yes, both Service Alert and TSB for engine tapping noise are for 2.5L with...

    New 2021 CX-5 Signature, 6,600 miles left before first service?

    The oil life monitor is doing the mileage countdown even if the CX-5 is sitting. During this pandemic, lots of people work at home and drive less. Which means they will get the Flexible oil change notification even though the car has driven very minimum miles far less than 7,500, but the time...

    2018 CX-5 GT Ticking

    Based on Mazda’s Service Alert and TSB, this tapping noise problem is only from 2.5L with cylinder deactivation on 2018 and newer CX-5’s. And the switchable hydraulic lash adjusters (HLA) on cylinder #1 and #4 are designed only for cylinder deactivation / activation.

    You can do a load test to your factory battery at any auto parts stores such as Auto Zone. If you need a new battery, you can get a Costco Interstate Group 35 battery for $79. But you have to replace the battery by yourself.
