It's been super cold here all week and my engine has been completely and utterly dead. Feels like it's running on two cylinders. The ECU pulls timing big time at these temps until it is sure the oil temperature is normal, which takes 20-30 minutes of driving to achieve at temps like this.
My liquid engine mounts froze solid last Wednesday and the car has felt and run like complete and utter garbage ever since. I really understand how frustrated the Canadian market has been over this issue now. This car feels shockingly, embarrassingly crude and under-engineered when this condition rears its head. The little tin can Ford Escort I drove 25 years ago as my first car felt like a Lexus compared to my CX-5 driving experience this past week.
Taking off from stops is the worst of it. The car vibrates so terribly it feels like it's destroying itself. And the NOISE. Like some cheap subwoofer blasting a 70hz sine wave at full volume. Mazda is not getting nearly enough flak for this engineering gaff.
Yours too hey? Mine felt so gutless in this cold also felt like it had 50hp.
