Ignoring how awful everything about that setup is right now, are you really that lazy? It takes 3 seconds to tighten a lug nut. There's no reason not to do it. I'm not sure you understand the purpose of lug nuts.

maybe. I'm only like 5'6" and skinny so it's hard to say.

It's very loud and sounds good but it is slow. If/when I get motivated and have time to work on it again, I really want to replace the exhaust. I had a Racing Beat cat-back on the RX-8 and it sounded really really good so I'd probably get that for the 7.

I've worked in a automotive repair shop for the past 3 years I'm not an idiot. I know what lug nuts do and I was fitting the skirts to see how I liked them before I sand and paint them.

A car should NEVER be on the ground with loose lug nuts.

Working at a shop doesn't mean anything. Just this past week one of my friends had a shop **** his car up real bad. There are millions of horror stories from shops.

They're weren't just turned a few turns they're finger tight so the weight of the car wouldn't be out further on the studs just a millimeter or two out than they would be if they were tight.

Why torque them on if you're taking them off 2 minutes later? In my book it's a waste of time. I work my way you work your way. Jeep your thoughts to yourself cause I do t want to hear them.

If I've been at the same shop for 3 years clearly I've been doing my **** right.

The studs aren't supposed to hold the weight of the car at all.

Hit black ice driving to work the other morning. Picking up a new(to me) rolling shell completely gutted tomorrow for $200. Windshield caved in 4 inches, all the windows shattered and the front webbed when the car landed on it's room.

I traded my old ladys CX 5 in a few months ago for a tahoe. As much of a mazda fan I am i dont think i will be purchasing another after the CX 9 was such a let down.

There was two sentences. Also I said I traded in my wifes CX5 for a Tahoe. I'm sure I could have worded that whole post better.

yeah, it makes more sense now, i got my mom to look into (and she bought) a CX-5, aside from the fact the interior is a little cramped, i think they are nice if you are looking for something in the small crossover area.. and i like the styling on them

but if you traded a CX5 for a tahoe, i suspect your needs had outgrown the "Small SUV" market at that point

After driving a few at work they've grown on me. 2.5L turbo, I was a little surprised when I was reading the window sticker at the 310 torque.

the CX5 is a fine machine don't get me wrong, but its just a 3 with more headroom. My only real requirement for my replacement was 3rd row seating after test driving a few different suvs i leaned towards the Tahoe. The cx9 just seemed lacking in power, its a fine vehicle but in my opinion they chose the wrong power plant.

im quite surprised the CX-5 gets along as well as it does.. its a fairly substantial amount of car getting pushed along by a very small engine

i mean it feels a bit underpowered.. but not as bad as you might think.. i was thinking neon.. and its more like a camry
