Redline Review: 2015 Mazda CX-5
No longer just a re-badge Ford, Mazda starts from scratch and builds us a
compact SUV with the soul of a Miata. The 2015 CX-5 has all the traditional
strengths: a roomy cabin, good fuel efficiency, an excellent driving
position, and good cargo space. Only a lack of an upgrade engine and
slightly dated cabin tech keep it from being the best in the segment.

30fps with the skeleton case(open back).

*Power mirrors(heated too)
*Leather interior. Steering wheel and shift knob are leather as well.
The car is all stock, unmolested, 15" OEM factory alloys, trunk wing(with
Only has 97K miles
Now the bad: The engine is running rough, it misfires upon acceleration,
the muffler came undone(hence the loud Exhaust), drivers seat is torn, door cards are
loose, etc... It needs some TLC which the car will finally get ;-)
I never realized how well my 1994 626 2.0L FS 4 cylinder runs until I drove
the MX-6, the 626 has been babied and it has 249k miles and still running
I plan on restoring the MX-6 and then possibly start modding / upgrading
it, only time will tell as I'm still working on my 626, here you can find
my build thread:
Stay tuned ;-)
