2 very slight different colors on the LED running lights. I've seen his previous videos...and I thought I was OCD.
This new 2017 CX5 is on my short list as a replacement for my wifes car.Hopefully the diesel version which is supposed to be available mid year but with all the volkswagen crap it may be delayed. Never liked the busy ride of the CX5 which I have driven several times as rentals and my sister has one. They said they worked hard on improving this substantially so I assume it will no longer be an issue. Styling is greatly improved also. This one will surely have both front and rear heated and air conditioned seats along with heads up display and all the latest and greatest safety features. A diesel in this thing will probably get 40++ mpg.The totally new 2017 CX will be at dealers sometime in March, Mazda's odd about their intro dates.
Too bad you had to settle for the older version as the new one is much more like a small CX 9 than yours or my old one.
"The new 2017 Mazda CX-5 may look like the outgoing model, but the changes go deep and are, indeed, substantial. Although the styling updates may seem subtle, the new CX-5 is both longer and lower than the previous version."
"The 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine carries over; output for the 2017 model wasn’t disclosed, but the last iteration of this powerplant put out 184 horsepower. Mazda has hinted that a diesel engine might come to the U.S. Buyers can still opt for either a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission. Mazda says the 2017 models also get an enhanced stability control system."
I came from a '15 CX 5 GT and there is really no comparison between it and a Honda truck.
No way around it, a CX 5 is pretty tight inside.
Much smaller, slower, way less versatile but the Honda is a truck when you need one.
Actually Mazda's re-done CX 9 would be a proper comparo but it has cramped front seats that do not adjust vertically.
Even the cheaper CX 5 has that feature.
The Honda dealership allowed me $24,000 as a trade for it and 27 months of ownership and I paid $29, 500 for it.
Best thing about a most Mazdas is that if properly maintained they have good resale/trade values if you know how to deal.
Personally, I take both opinions with a whole truckload of salt. These single poster opinions have to be considered only one data point among thousands. They may be valid for the OP but are only universally valid if they become the majority or at least a very large percentage of owners. They are not even remotely close to that - in fact, quite the opposite.When I read your posts and Csimos posts I'm waiting for my RL to fall apart but so far so good.
Actually, to many the down motion to upshift and up to downshift is more natural when speaking in terms of driving a manual transmission. 1-2, down; 3-4, down; 5-6, down. Reverse that for downshifting........One odd thing about the CX-5 I owned, was that if you used the manual shift mode to upshift you actually pull the lever down rather than up as one would expect.
Wow, I would take that bet for any amount you care to name. It would be a sure thing since I suspect soon you will be paying higher rates for vehicles w/o those features. To suggest otherwise is to totally ignore reality and statistics, all of which say that overall (and overall is all that counts when it comes to insurance rates) these systems are much safer.I am betting that soon insurance companies will charge more for the vehicles with driver assist features since they can cause accidents.
I would point to his signature line showing the number of vehicles he has owned. Significant? You decide.So this guy buys a Ridgeline truck, complains on YouTube about some defects, and then trades it in for ... a sports car? Sounds like he wanted a sports car all along, and used the RL issues to cover his bad purchasing decision.
