I can tell that you love to make assumptions. I've changed a few flat tires in different scenarios, including on the side of the highway. I know how dangerous it is. I also know that the amount of time it would take for me to swap a rear tire to the front and put the spare on the rear is maybe only a few minutes longer than taking the front tire off and putting the spare on. If you can sit and clench your cheeks while you use the scissor jack to raise the car, you'll survive swapping the rear tire to the front. I'm surprised you aren't condemning all the manufacturers that include scissor jacks as emergency jacks.
We've discussed this before, let's just agree to disagree.
Hope to have some special promotions or deals with the CX5 soon.
Great, great write up. I wonder if this is the issue with the tranny you were describing ? We have Eternal Blue, also. Who provides the warranty? Mazda????
"Active Adaptive Shift (AAS) automatically controls the transaxle shift points to best suit the road conditions and driver input. This improves driving feel. The transaxle may switch to AAS mode when driving up and down slopes, cornering, driving at high elevations, or depressing the accelerator pedal quickly while the selector lever is in the D position. Depending on the road and driving conditions/vehicle operations, gear shifting could be delayed or not occur, however, this does not indicate a problem because the AAS mode will maintain the optimum gear position."
