    Winter is here and my CX-5 turbo is now a 2.0!

    I wonder if the 2020's have a different tune that may have fixed this problem? They do have an extra 10 ft-lbs of torque. Maybe someone in a colder area can test a 2020 with the 2.5T and report back?

    Poll Who has a CX-5 and a Miata?

    Haha, oops. I got autocorrected from plenty to pretty. It is a pretty car! 😅

    Ugh. Sudden issues with almost new 2019 CX-5

    What kind of led bulbs were they? Are they 7443A? Maybe the bulbs cause power quality issues and as a result the modules stopped working.

    Poll Who has a CX-5 and a Miata?

    I think I drove a ND1 but it was pretty enough. Not enough to get me in trouble though. ND2 should be even better.

    Poll Who has a CX-5 and a Miata?

    It's pretty fun! Never drove the manual with limited slip diff. It's like a go cart. The paddle shifters were nice. I used it quite a few times to send it on the freeway. The CX-5 is definitely inspired by the Miata. Coming out corners feel better on the CX-5 (GVC+ with the brake application)...

    It doesn't count but I'm currently renting a ND Miata RF auto.

    Dealer incompetence

    How did you extract the oil? Never had to do anything like that.

    Dealer incompetence

    Where do you check it? When they say your car is ready, pop open the hood and pull the dip stick and wipe it and plunge and measure? I might have to do that because I just checked the oil level and it's over the max (3000 miles since last oil change).

    Underbody Panel Falling off?

    No, I did not use the donut/spare tire. The tire was able to temporarily hold air until I made it to the tire shop. The area in question is the left rear side of the car. Here are some more photos - crawled around the garage floor. It looks like there's a hole in the panel but no supporting...

    Underbody Panel Falling off?

    I feel like I am cursed with this car. I had a flat tire last week, now I have panels falling off. Could the tire shop have damaged the rivets? The flat tire repair was on the other side of the car - passenger rear side.

    Underbody Panel Falling off?

    I was walking by my car the other day and saw that something was dangling underneath the car. See circled in red. I didn't get a chance to take a look at the other side.

    Flat tire and No TPM light came on

    With the Orange TPMS monitor, the wheel pressures don't immediately measure. I think the sensors only report after the car moves a good 10 seconds. I wonder if it is woken up by speed.

    Flat tire and No TPM light came on

    Wow mine didn't even notify me when moving out of the garage. I moved at least 30 to 40ft.

    Flat tire and No TPM light came on

    Is the Mazda AIO still actively being developed? I always wonder what kind of data is actually exposed. Is the TPMS pressure data accessible? I think I looked at their GitHub page a while back and didn't see anything there.
