    Purchasing new tires from discount tires for my AWD cx-5. Which do you recommend?

    Hey guys, So yesterday I drove over a box knife, which punctured my tire beyond repair. I'm at 13k miles and I can either buy one tire and have it shaved down or buy 4 new ones. I'm opting towards 4 new ones because the stock tires would probably only have a good year left on them. Discount...

    Free oil change under 2 year warranty?

    I'm due for my second oil change (got my first one free at Mazda) and I am wondering if your car came with free oil changes for the first 2 years? I know this is fairly common with many car brands. Before I call and ask, I wanted to see what everyone else had to say!

    Looking for some tips on how to buff out scuff marks on my plastic interior.

    Took my car on a 2 week road trip with some friends and my interior took a bit of a beating. Mainly the plastic interior is scratched up. The plastic on the inside of my trunk ended up with the most damage. There are several gnarly scuffs/scratches (from a plastic ice cooler rubbing against it...

    Got rear ended yesterday! Damage is barely noticeable. What should I do?

    Yesterday it was raining quite hard outside and the woman behind me ran into me. It was 100% her fault and she acknowledged the fact that it was. She was freaking out because it was her second accident (her fault) in the last month) so she was afraid of her rates/losing her insurance. She...

    Mazda Cx-5 touring won't start?

    Today before heading to work, my car wouldn't start. The brake pedal was locked and there was no sound of the engine starting at all. The car's audio and lights turned on, so it's not a battery issue right? Does the radio and lights turn on still even if the battery is dead? I finally got the...

    Went over some potholes..

    Went hiking today and ended up driving in some back gravel roads with Huge potholes around a foot deep. I tried to avoid them all but went over some pretty hard. Should I be worried about any damage to my car? Is there a way to tell if anything got damaged?

    Question regarding speaker size

    I've been reading through the forum and found out that the 2016 Bose sound system has 9 inch speakers. Does anyone know the rear/door/dash sizes for the Touring version (without the Bose sound system)? After doing some research online, I want to get these pioneer speakers...

    "Break in" period?

    I was wondering if any of you guys drove you car cautiously for the first 700 miles? I know cars used to have a break in period where you wouldn't drive above 60 mph. I asked my car salesman and he said the Mx-5 has a break in period of 700 miles. Should I stay under 60 mph during this time or...

    Lowering my CX-5

    Just bought my Cx-5 touring! Absolutely love it! I would like to eventually lower the car. I have 17 inch rims and personally think the appearance would look much better by lowering the car 1-2 inches. If I lower the car by only 1 inch, will it negatively affect the car in any way? Would love...
