    Power Seat works, but very loud noise

    Drivers seat bottom back/forth power adjustment works, but it makes a very loud noise. I checked and there isn't anything stock on the rails. Sounds like the motor is under heavy load with or without anyone on the seat. I just had my oil change and won't be back at the dealership for another 5...

    2022 CX-9 EV?

    I've been looking at several car reviews online and it seems like everyone is updating their vehicles. Their designs are fresh, provide innovation and look great in my opinion, then Mazda releases the MX-30 EV which looks not up-to par with the competition. If 2022 doesn't bring a new model...

    So a few years ago I had these repaired due to some scratches. It appears it didn’t take well. What other solutions are out there? Repaint them? Sand them and make them black? Or leave them as is?

    Chains on 20" wheels?

    I bought these set of chains to keep in my car for emergencies, in case I ever need to drive in sand or put them on (required in CA) to drive up in the mountains when it snows. I read the manual and there is a note that says: I'm not planning on switching my tires to R18, but I'm curious to...

    Is this normal window operation?

    Edit: I have the window lock key pressed because I don’t want my kids opening the windows. Today, I realized that I couldn’t open the windows either? I could swear that they should still work for me, the driver while keeping everyone else’s disabled. Am I wrong?

    CX-9 to 5

    Now that the CX-5 is getting a turbocharged...is anyone considering switching over? Same engine, smaller car, probably better fuel efficiency. Signature level trims look like they would match all features. Besides the 7 seats, what else does the CX-9 bring to the table that the 5 wouldn't?

    2018 Parking Sensor Retrofit to 2016

    I just noticed that the 2018 version has front parking sensors...I don't know why the 2016 didn't have it (it did in Australia), but I am very interested in retrofitting this. Does anyone know if it's possible to have the dealer do this? Also, anyone considering trading in their 2016 for the 2019?

    2016 CX-9 Compass and other useless features

    What are some of the features you think the 2016 has that only look good on paper? I can think of two: 1) Compass (I realize no one uses this, but still, the way it works it's ridiculous) You can see in the short video below, the compass is pointing West in the direction I'm moving, but the sun...
