I tend to read “unread posts since the last visit” as it prevents me from trawling the bewildering number of sections on the forum.  As there is only a handful of posts on which should be one of the busiest forums in the country, I find it easier that way.  However, I can’t find an option of how to stop it reverting to the index instead of the thread after posting.  Is there a way to do it?  I hope I’ve posted in the correct section or no doubt I won’t be able to find it again.

I can't answer your question as such, and I also personally think there's way too many sections to find anything, but if you scroll down to nearly the bottom of the home page there's an "info centre", wherein lies a "view the most recent posts on the forum" link.  As long as there hasn't been lots of recent activity, you can actually find recent posts.

Thank you Anchorman, look forward to further info when you have a chance.

Yeah, Mazda are working on the website today.

Hello to all. I have recently ordered a CX5 Sport Nav+ 2.2d auto in white for September. The test drive was in a manual and I have read reports on the auto being very good. Looking forward to taking delivery. I have had test drives in most SUVs available and the CX5 came out tops in all fields including price.

You should get the new version with several improvements.  should be a nice car!

I don’t agree that it is a disaster.  There is an issue with cold starting but that doesn’t make it a disaster.  Its fine when it is running.  The 1800 rpm start up is explained in every handbook - it is there to speed up the temperature rise in the cat.  This silver one I have does knock (not bang) on start up but the red one which was written off didn’t so it isn’t common, there is something amiss.  The reason they are adding Adblue (which might be new to you but I’ve had the pdf’s for a while now) is because it is needed for the US market where some states have very tough emission laws.  It was always intended to be so, thats why you have the blank next to the fuel filler.

I don’t know why you are so hostile towards Mazda.  If its that bad, sell it and buy a Tiguan.  Good luck with that, after months of trying to sort out a dangerous flat spot on a brand new vehicle, my mate has just got his money back on his.

I’m interested in how you get on as mine goes in on the 1st for the same thing but they don’t all do it so it will get sorted.  Not everybody is as discontent as you are.

Question really for BigAl and team, is the 'Inlet Valve' fowling related to the MAP sensor being clogged. I have just been reimbursed for the considerable cost of having this replaced with 6 hours labour. This was the the prompt response to my complaint email to Mazda UK. Considerably more than half my mileage (now 50,000) is Motorway. I have not had DPF concerns or rising oil levels, so was surprised by the unexpected loss of power.

These fouling issues come from the use of direct injection of fuel into the combustion chamber.  Earlier vehicles used to inject into the inlet manifold and the mixture of fuel and air kept the inlet valves clean but as direct injection effectively bypasses them, they can become quite grubby.  Vapours from the crank case (this is caused by some of the combustion pressure getting past the pistons) are recirculated into the inlet system. Its this stuff that gets on the inlet valves.  If the sensor you had changed is inboard of the recirculating pipe, it will be effected.  I can’t just access the tech site to look but I will later in the week.

The tank Urea tank location looks interesting by creating a possible conflict with any towbar fitting. Difficult to be say for sure but I trust the engineers would have thought of that.

It would also be nice, considering the relatively low number of CX-5 diesels when compared to say VW, that current vehicles could be retro fitted. Talking to my dealer yesterday he agreed, but wouldn't be precise, when I stated that in-house diesel sales must have hit rock bottom possibly a fall off in the region of 40%. I was left with the distinct feeling that 40% was a very conservative figure and that actual fall off in diesel sales was much higher. He also stated, although in general terms because I didn't exactly ask what my 3-year old vehicle would be worth in trade-in value, that the dealership wouldn't accept it as trade-in bearing in mind what I've just said regarding sales figures.

Urea tank as discussed.  I don’t think Mazda are being evasive, it’s just not relevant yet. The urea or adblue as you call it is objected into the exhaust. It won’t stop inlet valve fouling.
