    Parking - How Close is Too Close?

    I would not be a happy camper if this was my car. The guy probably just pulled in until he was close to your car not paying attention to where the line was. But it would take a remarkably skilled driver to be able to stop an eighth of an inch from the car in front without giving it a love tap...

    2016.5 CX5 windshield cracked, needing opinions on repair/replacement...

    I’ve only used Safelite once to replace the back of my older Honda Accord and it was not a very positive experience. I must have had a short or something in the rear defrosters because one morning while driving my kid to school with the rear defroster on, the whole back window cracked. It...

    Infrastructure bill contains back-door kill switch for all autos

    So you take a comment that is ambiguously political and turned it up to an 11. LOL

    A/C only working on passenger side

    I have a similar situation in my 2013 CX-5 but I don’t use automatic climate on. I just have it set to the lowest temp all the time. How do you observe the actuators? I’ve also noticed that the heater exhibits similar behavior except the opposite. My conclusion was that the left actuator...

    FINALLY got the Stormtrooper setup about right for my 2017 CX-5 GT (Canada)

    Cool! I hope you don’t have issues with alignment that make it hard to aim your CX-5 where you want it to go. 😁😁😁

    Need advice — 2021 or 2022 CX-5 Signature?

    I prefer to sell my cars to a company knowing I’m not getting the maximum price for them. Since I keep them for over 10 years, I don’t want someone coming back to me in a couple of months complaining that the AC blew up or it started leaking oil or something. And I don’t know about everyone...

    New love for Auto Folding Mirrors

    I don’t adjust most of these things every time I drive the car and when I do, I don’t have a choice but to use them. If the folding mirrors are activated, they open and close every time you drive the car. I’ve had the memory seat settings go out on another car. The AC compressor on a couple...

    New love for Auto Folding Mirrors

    I live in S. Florida, so the AC is on 95% of the time 😄. Folding mirrors are not a necessity to me. And if I don’t use them then that’s one less thing to worry about. It’s obvious from this thread that many people find them useful. I’m not negating that.

    New love for Auto Folding Mirrors

    I might be overly paranoid or pessimistic but I view this as just something else that can malfunction or break. My other car has this and I disable it.

    Picked up my new 22 GT

    Congrats! Definitely take off the dealer sticker. It sounds like you didn’t have a really positive experience with them, so why advertise for them? Also switch out their license plate frame. When I had my Honda Accord, I took off the dealer frame but every time I brought the car in for...

    2013 CX-5 Spotify over Bluetooth not showing Song info (Solved)

    I found the solution and wanted share in case anyone happens upon this later. The issue seems to be that since my CX-5 is almost 10 years old, it does not recognize the AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Protocol) version that my new phone is configured with. The solution is to go into settings...

    2013 CX-5 Spotify over Bluetooth not showing Song info (Solved)

    Just checked with an older phone and the song data shows up fine. Some sort of incompatibilities with the newer Bluetooth protocol maybe?

    2013 CX-5 Spotify over Bluetooth not showing Song info (Solved)

    This is a long shot but Googling hasn’t turned up anything. My 2013 CX-5 has never had this issue with any of my or my family’s phones before. I just got a Google Pixel 6 android phone and I am able to connect via Bluetooth and play music, but the song info does display. Only a music note...

    2013 CX-5 Passenger side door panel delamination issue

    Has this happened to anyone else? I have a first gen 2013 CX-5. The other day, when my daughter opened the passenger door to get in, she said she heard some kind of pop and then the light colored padded material on the door was hanging loose. I suppose since I haven’t been driving it as often...

    "My husband suffers from S.D.S."

    My neighbor has a relative that must think that parking on grass preserves his tires or something. He parks his car in between our houses or on the swale, but never on the street.

    Wife got T-Boned - Wrote off CX-5

    20 years ago, my in-laws owned a station wagon. They werent hit, but had to stop suddenly and my 10 year old brother-n-law who was in the back ended up in the front seat. Even after that, they didnt insist that the kid had to buckle up.

    Has anyone gotten a door ding yet?

    I*ve been around long enough to know that they*re inevitable, but that first one is like a shot through the heart. My 2013 has a couple of deep dents on the right rear wheel arch that you just know was from some idiot kid in the back seat recreating the storming of the beaches at Normandy on D-Day.
