    Got into a accident yesterday

    My wife got into an accident similar to this one. She got hit. Airbags deployed and they didn't total the vehicle. Almost 18k in damage and they fixed it.

    Prices for a full brake job, 2018 CX-5

    I know I'm going to be going to a reputable garage for my brakes rather than the dealer. My rears were about $600 for new pads and rotors. eff that.

    Skyactiv 2.5L NA Low speed sluggishness SOLVED

    Is there a TSB we can quote for the dealer to check or repair. What can the average person do in the meantime?

    Skyactiv 2.5L NA Low speed sluggishness SOLVED

    So, for the laymen here...what can we do if anything to fix this problem? Is there a certain TSB we can ask for at the dealer or some other fix?

    Key fob low battery on dash but new batteries?

    FWIW, I bent the little tab under the battery up a little bit and I haven't had a problem since.

    Comparing 87 to 91 octane for the 2.5L non-turbo engine

    To OP: You're going to get furious debate on here about this issue. You'll get all the pseudo scientists trotting out all the documentation in the world showing that there is no difference in using 87 vs. 91. Then you'll get all the pseudo scientists trotting out all the documentation in the...

    Poor Gas Mileage, getting worse and worse

    I change my air filter every 25k just to be safe. Every few months I run a tank of 94 octane with fuel injector cleaner. I go WOT once in a while to "blow out the carbon". I do everything I'm supposed to do. I just don't want to lunch my motor doing the fuel system thing through the vacuum system.

    Poor Gas Mileage, getting worse and worse

    We drive mainly highway, minimal city driving. I was averaging about 9-9.5 L/100kms, sometimes in the 8's. I check tire pressures often, same routes, same passengers. Nothing changes. Same gas station even (Costco). No I have not. It only has 100k Kms on it. Still a while for plugs yet.

    Replace rear brake pads and Rotors @40,000 Miles?

    Rears are garbage. I had to have pads and rotors done in June of 2020 with only about ±50k kms. Which isn't terrible but the car was only 3 years old at the time.

    Are you concerned about signal relaying theft?

    Not everyone is an electrical engineer and understands things the same way. Maybe I was mistaken on the exact specific way of this particular theft. All I'm saying is that thieves can sit in their vehicle to grab your code and then steal your car. I mean if you want to get absolutely specific...
