    Tow Hook License Plate Adaptor for a 2020 CX-5 Reserve

    I just got a slightly used 2020 CX-5 Reserve and I need to mount a front license plate. I am thinking about a Tow Hook mount, but wondering if it will block any of the lasers in the front? Anyone know if the Tow hook mount will interfere with any of the sensors? Thanks

    Calibration after windshield replacment

    The Safelite windshield was fine,but in the process of installing it they damaged the light/rain sensor which is around $300. They initially tried to make it work without replacing,but it just got worse over a day or 2. As mentioned they eventually replaced the windshield and sensor at no charge.

    Calibration after windshield replacment

    I ended up with another new windshield. After the initial problem with the rain sensors I took it back to safelite and they "fixed" the problem. I could smell glue in the cabin after the "fix". Soon after the wipers started coming on when it wasn't raining and the light sensor for the headlights...

    Calibration after windshield replacment

    I guess I am not too surprised,but now I notice that the rain sensing wipers aren't working at all. I haven't tested the auto-light turn on feature,but I suspect that won't be working either as I understand it uses the same sensor. In searching other threads I found that the OEM windshield...

    Calibration after windshield replacment

    I just had the windshield replaced on my 2015 CX 5 with tech package. Safelite replaced the glass and after some discussion determined that I didn't need to recalibrate the sensor (laser) (and save $300)for the collision avoidance device. This device is built in or directly behind the...

    Hood Latch

    I just wedged a bottle cap to hold the latch release open in the car and I was able to open the hood. We did lube it last time so might need to be replaced. Thanks for any input. At least I was able to add much needed washer fluid.

    Hood Latch

    My hood latch stopped working on my 2015 CX5. This has happened twice recently. The first time I stopped by a repair shop I use and when one tech was at the hood and another pulled the latch it opened. They cleaning and lubed the latch and adjusted the bumpers to put more pressure for the...

    Radio Notifications

    I took my CX5 in to a dealer for the gas filler pipe recall and mentioned the problem with the notification issues. They found there was a firmware update available for my 2015's entertainment/navigation system. The notification system is now working and the navigation system is much more...

    Radio Notifications

    I was getting continuous on screen notifications of messages from my phone via Bluetooth on the screen of the nav/radio system,so I turned these notifications off in the setup menu. I would then get a "notifications are turned off voice announcement everytime I started the car with the phone...

    I just checked the manual and indicates 36 pounds is recommended with the 19" wheels.

    New CX5 Owner impressions/questions

    Sorry about that, I have a 2015 GT with 2WD. In my case the lower pressure really helped solidify the driving "feel" with 19" Continental Extreme Contacts.

    New CX5 Owner impressions/questions

    I had a bit of a breakthrough on the drifting/tramlining issue. I had my CX5 in to local shop for an oil change. They did a complimentary check of a bunch of areas. After the work, I noticed the steering felt more "solid", with better tracking on any surface. I chatted with the shop and they did...

    New CX5 Owner impressions/questions

    Let's keep in touch on this the this issue. With the new Continental ECs the drifing/tramlining is less noticeble,but still there. I may just get an alignment just to see if the that helps. As mentioned it looked fine when they put it on the rack after the new tires were installed.If you find a...

    New CX5 Owner impressions/questions

    The problem is less noticeable with new Extreme Contact Continentals I just put on last week,but just slightly there still.Roads with grooves seem to increase the issue. I thought it might be wind pushing the vehicle around for awhile,but not sure. I was going to do an alignment with the new...

    New CX5 Owner impressions/questions

    So far,much, much better in the snow and water than the half worn factory Toyos. No issues with the slightly wider footprint (20mm). I am now much more comfortable with the 2 wheel drive on my CX5 during a Minnesota winter!

    How long do OEM tires last?

    I bought the EC DWSs in 245 50 19 and have driven 50 miles or so on them. Of course the Toyos were about half gone,but the ECs are much better in the snow and wet for sure and I would say with limited driving lots better overall. No problem with the slight increase in width.

    How long do OEM tires last?

    I am getting the slightly off specification Continental Extreme Contact DWSs installed today. Snowing out now here in Minnesota,so will be a good test to start out with. As mentioned earlier in the thread the ECs are 245 50 19 whereas the factory is a 225 55 19 which is not available in an EC...

    Thanks for the responses. I suspect the noise is normal. As mentioned I really liked the Extreme Contact Continentals on my WRX. They don't make a 225/55/r19,but they do make a 245/50/r19. The height of tire would be very close to the same(.05"),so shouldn't have any speedometer issues. The tire...
