I'm on my Surface now, and I still can't see the post #1 and subsequent posts by the OP.
No, looks like I can no longer see any of Jack Rabbit's posts for some reason. But I didn’t block anybody like I said earlier. Can you check my personal setup from background?Can you see any of his posts from this thread? He started this one as well and has some posts in there too.
The following post is based on my experience with the CX5. Have ran 19 inch, 17 inch and 16 inch rims/tires so far and these are results on fuel efficiency, handling and comfort. Appearance is subjective so left that out. 19 inch rims/toyo tire combo- Fuel efficiency was so-so highway avg @...mazdas247.com

I mainly use Safari on the iPhone, and Microsoft Edge on my Surface laptop sometimes.
Maybe try a browser you're not logged into. I don't use Edge, but did for this experiment and I can see his posts without even logging in. I'm wondering if him blocking you might cause this.I mainly use Safari on the iPhone, and Microsoft Edge on my Surface laptop sometimes.
I just tried as you suggested and yes I can see Jack Rabbit's posts once I logged out from the forum. This seems somehow I blocked Jack Rabbit in my profile, but I’ve never blocked anybody before. I also checked my profile and I didn’t see anything that indicates I’ve blocked somebody either.Maybe try a browser you're not logged into.

If that’s true, not only the price on our Interstate Group 35 went up from $78.99 to $109.99, a ~40% increase, in 3 years, but also the warranty is worse!
BTW, how come the initial write-up by the OP is gone?
Haha, I had a LOADED Ford SHOAs you probably know, extreme heat is harmful to batteries but extreme cold reduces capacity by about 50% so a weak battery will fail to start the vehicle in cold weather as you may get only 1/4 of the capacity.The other good thing with this battery blanket is that you can transfer it to your next vehicles as it's not a permanent installation. Of course good old jumper cables or lithium-ion booster pack can prevent you from getting stranded. Batteries can fail any time not just in winter and even after only 21/2 or 3 years, I know it happened to me a few times in the past decades! Sometimes I envy people living in Hawaii
Dealers now charge $300 forThere’re only a few car battery manufactures in the US right now, Exide、 East Penn/Deka、and Brookfield. Johnson Controls used to be big but they sold their automotive battery business to Clarios in 2019. WalMart’s EverStsrt batteries used to be made by Johnson Controls but now they should be made by Brookfield or Exide.
For your CX-5 GT-R you want a Group 35 battery. For Group 35 battery WalMart has EverStart Plus (525 CCA、$99.76)、EverStart Maxx (640 CCA、$119.84)、EverStart Platinum (650 CCA、$159.84). The former 2 are flooded lead acid batteries and the later is an AGM battery. The only advantage of using AGM battery is it has no liquid so it won’t leak acid, and you can install it sideways. I’d choose EverStart Maxx for my CX-5.
A couple of years ago the Interstate Group 35 / 640 CCA battery selling for $78.99 at Costco is the best buy. Now with 40% price hike to $109.99 it’s no longer that obvious the best choice anymore.
Dwight the BEST battery now is Lithium antigravity group 35 with re-start.Thanks guys. I'm aware that there are only a few actual battery manufacturers out there and many of the chain auto parts stores have them made up with their own house brand names and model numbers. Probably so you can't cross shop them. Kind of like mattresses.
I'll see about ordering one of the Everstart Maxx batteries and having it available for pickup at the closest Walmart location. What the heck, I may just spring for the AGM version. I know they are much lighter in weight so the installation should be a lot easier.
Its worse in Europe, their Euro is devaluing at a much faster rate.Inflation is nailing us at every turn.
That's what happens when you pump 5 trillion new dollars into the economy.
Yes, somehow I accidentally “ignored” Jack Rabbit and now I “unignored” him and the problem has resolved. Thank you.
That may be true on exchange rate, but people there use €, not $. During my recent 2812-mile road trip visiting Spain、Portugal、France、Andorra, what I’ve found is the inflation in the US is much worse than in these 4 countries! Everything there other than gasoline / diesel is much cheaper even with current exchange rate! When I visited UK and Europe many years ago, the feeling was totally opposite, everything is more expensive there! Here’s an example and you’d need to pay at least doubled for the same food in the US right now, not to mention you pay exactly 5€ posted, no extras such as additional 10% sales tax and 20% tips there in the restaurants.Its worse in Europe, their Euro is devaluing at a much faster rate.
I Arrived in Germany Oct 2020, where $300 was roughly $250 €. When I left last year in 2022 the currencies were almost equal.
