    My second generation CX5 (2017) with istop has completed 3 years and I am getting worried about the life of the original battery. It is charged/topped up now and then using a C-Tek charger and I have recently topped up both the charge and the distill water in the battery. Winters are harsh here...

    Just drove CX30 here in Sweden

    This was the CX 30, with 2 litre engine (skyactive G and mild hybrid, about 122bhp). Felt quite sporty, almost like driving BMW 3 and 1 serie (or even VW tiguan).

The...

    Is the 2017 cx5 front windshield glass polarised ?

    I have a problem with reflected light from oncoming cars at night. Never had this problem with the older bmw 320i since the glass on the windshield was polarised. Sorry. Perhaps I should have said antireflex coated instead of polarised glass.

    I have a non Bose 6 speaker system in my CX-5 2017 model. It has 2 tweeters on the A pillar, 2 door speakers on the front and 2 door speakers at the back. No sub woofer. I was thinking of changing the two front door and two rear door speakers and perhaps even the two A pillar tweeters in the...

    I was wondering if the drive on a highway on a rainy day with wipers on constantly would automatically set the AWD in action and there by increase fuel consumption and transmission wear and tear.

    charging battery in CX-5

    Is it possible to charge the car battery in CX-5 with an intelligent charger like the C-Tek or is that a big no no? With winter approaching I would like to keep the battery well charged. It was ok to do so in BMW in-spite of the battery management system and auto start stop in the car.
