    Do Brake lights come on when Cruise Control slows car?

    I changed the setting to "near" and the "auto braking" in cruise is now much less jarring. Thanks for the tip as my dealer was clueless, seems many of the features are unknown to them and this is a Mazda only dealership. Still not sure the brake lights come on when "auto braking" but it...

    Do Brake lights come on when Cruise Control slows car?

    The cruise control is so good i wish i could adapt it to all my other cars. Like said before its addictive and you have to remind yourself what you are driving and what features are available. Based on discussion with couple,agents I think its just a matter of time before insurance companies...

    Do Brake lights come on when Cruise Control slows car?

    2016. Nervous braking is a good description. Most noticable is when cruise brakes suddendly and next guy is follwing too close. Sometmes i wonder if car behind me has radar as well and set to min distance.

    Do Brake lights come on when Cruise Control slows car?

    The brake screeches and lip reading say it all. Short of having someone follow and report it make me nervous. I do know when the giant red "BRAKE!!!" symbol fills the HUD my foot is on the brakes and lights are on. Could be tailgaters as well. Not sure dealer knows for sure so...

    Do Brake lights come on when Cruise Control slows car?

    On more than one occaision it appears that the brake lights don't come on automatically when cruise control slows car. Noticed following cars panicing when our car is rapidly slowed by the collision avoidance/cruise control system. Dealer says it does but really no way to be sure when driving...

    2016~2023 2016 cx-9 rear spring "recall"????

    This find and fix thing is very strange. Yes, The dealer never explained to me what the problem was . They just fixed it. I assume the long wait included time to get authorization as was it out of 3 year warranty. the 2 Hours included an oil changes and rotation. Many will never know about...

    2016 CX-9 Wiper Blade Connector

    Well i know that the ABLE Wipes listed for 2016 CX-9 on Amazon absolutely won't work at all. First they sent the ones set up for a hook. Then they set an adapter that looks right but is about 2 mill too wide to fit. Sent them a pic and they said keep-em and refunded my $. Shame cause they...

    2019 CX-5 Diesel

    Nope. Dealer said most basically Hated it right during or just after the test drive. Some took test drive said thanks but no never to be seen again. Poor sales guy say the dread being asked about them as most sales are lost on reading the sticker. Then again could be a rare "sleeper" in 20 to...

    2019 CX-5 Diesel

    If its still there in march i may offer him 20K cash and bank on being able to rip out all the CALIF ARB crap including the DEF system. Right now the best part of the car is the 360 camera which might allow you to watch others laught as they pass. Anyone got resale values on these yet? Look...

    2016~2023 2016 cx-9 rear spring "recall"????

    Understood but a bit distressing. We actually bought the extended warranty before the car. Something we always do and it has paid off. I assume the cost would have been about $600 given the time it took and a glimpse of the parts invoice. Had we not gone to a dealer we would not have known...

    2016~2023 2016 cx-9 rear spring "recall"????

    So far so good. So if a design defect causes a wheel to fall off it is unworthy of a recall? I had to really search to find any info on what had happened or what repair was necessary. My little post about it brings the total number of hits of the spring issue to two. Dealer was well aware...

    2019 CX-5 Diesel

    Late to the game but thought it might be worth mentioning my initial observations on the 2019 2.2 cx-5 diesel were correct. The one i test drove months ago sits on the lot unsold and unloved. Even the salesfolk flat hate it and say many just look at the mileage and pricetag and say -- What the...

    2016~2023 2016 cx-9 rear spring "recall"????

    Been hearing a clunk or bump coming from underneath and was worried. Just out of warranty and now this, Took it in and knew something was "up" as they kept asking where the sound was coming from. Keep thinking left front and they keep asking "right rear" right?. So i gave up and said it...
