    Mysterious "line" (to me) in CX-5 display. What is it?

    Thank you. This is getting interesting if not more complicated. I'm trying to see what actual use that little line is to the car's occupants.

    Mysterious "line" (to me) in CX-5 display. What is it?

    Ha. No kidding! Well, I guess I'm really behind current tech. (Still drive my '89 Volvo and '99 Cherokee also - no trouble figuring them out.......) So. Sometimes when we get a cell phone call through the Mazda, with sat. radio running, it seems after the call the sat. radio, "song," resumes...

    Mysterious "line" (to me) in CX-5 display. What is it?

    Subject says most of it: What is the horizontal line below the music info that notes, "-06.05," has traveling dot followed by continuing blue line? I spent half an hour with the owner's manual and could find nothing about it. Photo attached, I hope. Thank you for any light that can be shed on this.

    2019 CX-5: Always chilly, "draft" around legs when trying to use heater. Why!?

    Well, after all this time, AVC's post came in closest to what answer the dealer finally provided. With the covid problem along with our being 85 miles or so from dealer, it was a month ago I got to the dealer and questioned them more. One of their fellows came out to our CX-5, said he had...

    2019 CX-5: Always chilly, "draft" around legs when trying to use heater. Why!?

    Thank you all for the help. First, we've tried every combination of heater/AC controls we can think of. Multiple times. Outside air and recirculating air. What I've noticed the most is when I try to direct all the heat I can toward my legs I never seem to feel much.....if any. Most button...

    2019 CX-5: Always chilly, "draft" around legs when trying to use heater. Why!?

    So we bought a new CX-5, 2019, a year ago June. We're 85 miles from dealer, so don't go by there much. As we got into winter, Fall of 2019, we noticed we always had a slight cold draft around our legs, below our knees. We spent most of last winter working with heater controls, figuring we...

    2019 CX-5 - best way to clean waffle grill?

    When we began to like the CX-5, I immediately noticed on the 2019's they have a waffle grill that looked horrible to get clean if bugs came to be a problem. We bought the car; love it and yup, this grill is bad for cleaning. How do all of you deal with this? I'm headed out tomorrow to buy a...

    2019 CX-5: How do I open key fob to replace battery?

    Spent 45 minutes looking in owner's manual trying to find out how to open key fob to replace battery. Fob has been used for just on one year, and today instrument panel displayed that the fob battery was running low. Removing the key from fob doesn't show me much. I hate to just begin prying...

    CX-5 interior, cleaning product recommendations?

    Thanks everyone. I'll look for 303. My wife knows all about Swifter stuff....., so she'll know what to get now that using those is mentioned. And Matty, ours is a 2019 with everything except Signature and turbo. Drove the turbo which was a quicker vehicle but we both like the non-turbo we got.

    CX-5 interior, cleaning product recommendations?

    Our CX-5 is a year old now. Still under 8K miles. We live on an old farm and things get really dusty here. Can't excape it. We're looking for recommendations for clearning interior door panels, dash, etc. Any tips? What do all of you use? Thanks, Dennis in EASTERN WA state
