    How long did your brake pads last?

    I have 63,000 miles so far and no problems but I guess on the next service it wouldn't be a bad ideal to request lubrication of the caliper pins. Side note: my girlfriend just had her rear brakes and pad replaced at 140,000 miles and fronts are still OK. She has a 2011 Chevy Cruze and owned it...

    Havoline oil w/ Moly?

    Yes @shooter357 they have some very good knowledge. What is your opinion on changing between brands? Many years ago there was the consensus that you stay with the same brand oil for the life of the engine. I was thinking about going back to the Castrol oil.

    Havoline oil w/ Moly?

    Thanks yrwei52 they actually used Castrol on the first oil change then charge over to Havoline after that, so they never did put any Mazda brand oil in the car.

    Havoline oil w/ Moly?

    I'm going to stop using my dealer for oil changes but I want to keep using the same brand and type they was using. 2014 CX-5 2.5L with about 60,000 mile. On the dealer invoices it stated HV0W20 SYN OIL CHEVRON. So I don't know if the dealer oil had Moly in it. What would you guys best guess...

    OK thanks it's a little confusing as they are both labeled polish. I seem an article where they try to describe the steps. First, Clay as being very abrasive, Rubbing Compound next with some abrasion and finally Polish more for shining. So would Z-5 be classified Rubbing Compound? Even though...
