  1. Not sure where you're getting your information as this makes the second time you've suggested something that doesn't make sense. We've used K&N filters since their creation and have never had any issue with any sort of down stream sensor screw up. It is best that we part ways as I'm getting bad vibes from your conversations.

  2. Correct on the trans issue, you may encounter shuttering while driving. We're hoping to take of this issue on our own by having the shop performance a BG service. We're totally removing the dealership from our equation. One may have to change the front seats either raise them or change the angle of the seats which is what we're doing. Other issues include struts that didn't last beyond 2 years as we've had to replace ours after only 2 years.


    One other thing that's bugged us until I was able to disable this feature was the pre-collusion warning system.. Although this can't be disabled is can be adjusted. as for the automatic braking during while the system is active, even though I've entered into the system settings and disabled the auto braking.. it still activates when least expected.


    @GearheadGrrrl for a quick upgrade in the torque and horse power, add a drop in K&N air filter. Plus opt for the NGK plugs as these are designed to ignite faster and cleaner.

  3. I've been using this forum as well as other forums with this same software. However and often I would get discouraged because I'm constantly scrolling left or right in order to read topics or post topics myself. This morning while at one of these other forums, I found out a simple solution to my forum width issue.


    For all those who are having the same issue, follow these directions.

    1. Press and hold the "Ctrl" key
    2. Using your mouse scroll/roller/wheel, roll forward or back (Do not move the mouse) this adjust (zoom in or out) the web page within your browser.
    3. Done.

    Now I can see and read everything over the entire page, even stuff on the right side that I've never seen before, tag clouds and more..


    Another adjustment I just located is a shadow box, as shown in the attached image. Take note of the red arrow over at the top right.. this is pointing to a shadow box, which can be clicked to close the right side column area (tags, top posters etc) thus allowing for a wider view of the forum area.


    Hope this helps anyone who has a smaller screen or even those who need to read the site in large text mode.

  4. I grow concerned with the Tc towing anything.. even though it says 2000 limit.. this should mean without anything else inside the cargo area. Also, that much weight on the tail end does lift the van's front end up slightly, thus risking less traction from the fornt wheel drive. if the van was set up as a rear wheel or awd.. I might change my mind on towing something.

  5. A van with a mild stance.. True it is or can be low and one should approach speed clamming hums, etc with caution. Not because of the rocker panels.. but because of the resonator which is located in the center/middle of the van. The resonator has been installed with a nasty forward slant or tilt. Which I don't like and would opt to replace it if given the chance.


    I have seen after market slider/side rails for the van but I'm not sure I would attach these and force the van even lower. Once my projective was to lift the van slightly by adding larger tires. But this had become a nightmare. The wheel well is very limited but some say (paper work wise) that a 26.1 tire will fit within that tight space. I'm not willing to explore that option.. But we did opt for better wheels and tires.


    So as long as you approach the hump/curb etc at an angle, things should be fine.. We've drive out TC 13K and have not had any issue with extreme dips etc.. though I do see some scuff marks on the left and right lower front air dams. Underneath of course.

  6. A lot of forums I've visited all seem to compare the TC to a Subaru outback or alternative.. The TC is not a Subaru nor ever will be.. If People keep trying to compare the TC to the Subaru.. then they should opt out of the TC and into the Subaru.. The TC is and has it's own image and stance. I don't compare the TC to anything but it's self.. Because even the Dodge, Chevy and Nissan version do not compare or stack up to the TC.

    Third newbie question: We would be transitioning from a Mazda 5, to the TCW. Has anyone else made this transition, and could share their experience?


    Thanks all.

    In my opinion, and because the TC could have the same engine based on what model/version Mazda 5 you opted for. If you're going personal carrier, you will have more room, even if you go for the cargo version.. you still have more room, just less seating. But the floor mounts are still present and one could acquire another row of seats. My over all impression of the TC, is simply looks like an ugly duckling, but handles like a sports car.
