If all goes well, in the coming weeks, I’ll be trading it in. First time w/o a Mazda in my driveway in 16 years.
I feel this. I’ve had this CX5 turbo loaner for almost two months. I’ve put 1600 miles on it, and I’ve noticed random jerks, momentary loss of power (a second or less while going up hill), and odd responses from it in the last week. I’m running 87 octane in it because $3.50 vs $4.50 per gallon is a lot. I hope these are flukes and maybe just bad gas, but it’s not helping my confidence in the 2.5T engine.
We’re keeping my wife’s CX5 (2.5 NA) for now since it’s pretty solid, and less than a year away from being paid off, but I doubt the cx9 will make its way across the country with us when we move. It may not even get back to my house when it’s repaired. I may pick it up and go straight to CarMax and cash in on their insane offer.
