    From a 2017 CX-5 to a 2020 with All Wheel Drive

    I think there is more clearance for right knee on 2020 vs my old 2016. I also think it is quieter, maybe a bit better gas mileage with CD and I love the stuff in premium - ventilated seats and key fob auto position seats, folding mirrors, walk away locking and radar cruise. I think the...

    2014 CX-5 owner looking to upgrade. New one worth it?

    I had a 2013, a 2016 and now a 2020, all GT+s. My current year long mileage is 31.5 mpg on the dash.

    Mixing OEM coolant with aftermarket

    I never used the word proprietary. What I said was if you use an additive not compatible with the seals it could shorten the life. The water pump manufacturer probably told Mazda what coolant formula to use for best seal life. I used the special GM Dextrose coolant in my 2000 Corvette and after...

    Mixing OEM coolant with aftermarket

    2019 CX-5, Coolant problem (CEL = P0126)

    Average MPG less than 20mpg, am I alone?

    Short trips in cold weather are killing your mpg. The 27 mpg on the 130 mile trip says the car is OK.
