Recently drove friend's Honda Element from Vegas to Orange County in pretty thick traffic on a Labor day. Had no power weaving in and out and doing what I wanted with Mercedes/Bimmers/etc. from 65-85 mph in the desert and the city in all kinds of conditions. Roughly same power-weight ration with...
Oh - I am totally speculating. Vegas to SoCal is somewhat downhill. I've gotten 32 mpg in my Bimmer manual so I'm just guessing I can get 37 mpg based on what seem people get on here. :) I'm not getting my Sport Manual for a month.
Not trying to start a pissing match about auto vs manual. I've...
I choose to believe the CX-5 is a wonderful tall-ish sport wagon not a SUV (or worse yet a CUV). Hence, need that damn third pedal! Plus I'm going to enjoy 36-37ish mpg driving between Vegas and Orange County next month.
Here's one from Rideslust for the Sport if it hasn't been posted
And I think it's been said, but the latest Car and Driver issue has the GT winning a small SUV comparo. No link yet.
If a Sport MT happens for me in the near future, a leather wheel and shift knob will be must add-ons along with Polks in the dash. Thinking about this one for only 18 http://www.amazon.com/dp/B0002MB80C/?tag=m20b7-20
But a stitched cover is probably a better choice. Where'd you get yours?
Agree with the above. It was the best review yet. I only use half the power in my BMW anyway. I look forward to revving the snot out of this thing just like I did my '90 Miata, '93 SE-R and '03 Protege.
How does the iPhone work with the standard radio in the Sport model? Will it charge through the USB? Will song titles show up on the screen?
I don't mind if I have to just run to the Aux. That's what I do with my head unit now, but it would be cool if the USB input worked with the iPhone...
Any chance of a manual with the diesel?
Even 8 mpg average over the Skyactive-G 6MT is not economically going to make up for the fact it will surely be 5K more. (Really doubting you will be able to get one in Sport trim.)
I drove the 6MT and the shifter was such a peach. I haven't had an...
Every car I've ever owned makes a boom-boom noise when you lower rear windows by themselves. It's just physics.
These sound like very minor problems. Try owning a German car over 12 years old. Not to get political, but a lot of the fluttering sheet metal things are the result of letting a nanny...
You're right. My cheap bastard side just has not filter sometimes.
Might get some pleather covers to ward off stains and dog hair/claws. The ones on Amazon get decent ratings for 70 bucks. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004IODPMO/?tag=m20b7-20
