Will you get your CX30 rust proofed? I plan on keeping it until it dies but I hear very mixed opinions about rust proofing cars. I live in Canada so salt is on the roads for 4months of the year so any input is appreciated
If mine was not leased I most likely would with fluid film which is like a sheep fat / wax product and have had it on my vehicles before and it is a very good product and if done correctly it only needs to be re-applied once every 2 yearsWill you get your CX30 rust proofed?

DonaldWant a good laugh< I use a Leaf blower or a Wet Vac to dry of my car after washing, you will be supprised where water gets trapped .

I would be using that... get my money out of the warranty.. forget farting around on the side of the road.. let the warranty pay for that bs 😂20 March /21.PUNCTURE REPAIR AND FOOT PUMPS
I have not been able to find any posts on the above topic.
If you look in the boot under the mat of the CX30 you will find a doenut tire, the CX3 had a full size wheel and tire that weighed a ton.
Years ago i experianced two flat tires in one day and three flats on my motor bike and when that happens you are "dead in the water" if you don't maintain pressure in your spare tire.
. You can buy all kinds of fancy electric inflater pumps my choice is a standard foot pump.
I am glad the boot of the CX30 is big enough for the foot pump.
The other tallent that many need to learn is how to fix a puncture at night on a loanly road.
All it takes is practice, go to the garage a pick up an old tire and practice plugging that tire.
Dont buy a cheep plugging kit and cheep CO2 inflaiters.
The down side is that plugs have a limited speed rating at least you can get to a gargge where you MAY be able to get a proper internal patch glued in place.
Several things to watch out for :-
Going back to basics.
 Never with draw the nail unless you have marked the spot with an "X". use a ball point pen or Sharpie marker pen.
 learn how to use your Mazda jacking device an know where the jacking spots are , and practice how to use the jack . The front of the car is alot heavier that the rear. most punctures are in the rear tire.
 Always carry a tire pressure guage.
 Carry tire / wheel blocking chocks and a 3/4 " and ply wood board for the jack foundation you could be stoped in dirt.
 Better have a distress flashing combo beacon light.
 Put the car in Park and insure the brake is on to prevent role out.
 Changing a wheel out requires special care the wheel nuts will be on very tight , second REMINDER the wheel is no good with out air in it .
