    Changing a Key Fob Function

    Sorry if this has already been posted. I have a 2018 CX-9. When opening the rear hatch with the key fob, I’m hoping to unlock the doors at the same time. Can this be done? Thanks!

    CX-9 Driver Visibility

    Driver visibility in the 2018 CX-9 sucks. This became apparent after driving a VW Touareg. To get maximum leg extension the CX-9 seat must sit low. If you raise it, it moves forward at the same time (?) lessening the leg room. Does anyone else feel too low? I see other CX-9 drivers and some...

    Parts availability

    An uninsured motorist backed into the CX-9. Its in the shop for repair; Im out of 200 bucks for the deductible and in a rental for three days. I had to really bargain hard for all OEM parts but I got it. A rare occurrence indeed. I picked a 33 year locally owned shop... great staff with great...

    Anybody have this issue?

    Thanks for reading, I could use your insight. Id left the house and been in the car about 3-4 minutes. I was on a straight stretch of road traveling about 40 mph today when I tried to accelerate. Normal outdoor temperature, excellent driving conditions. When I smoothly hit the gas, the...

    2016~2021 Display has a mind of its own

    Sometimes I like the display off or just the clock on. When choosing "turn off display," the last nav cross street will freeze in place across the top and the clock remains. Also, when trying to load iPod songs in through the USB, it never completes the loading process. The horizontal...

    Clear Coat Scratches Removed

    Used some Meguiar's Ultimate Compound to get clear coat scratches off the hood of the CX-9. It works great. It takes A LOT of energy to work the scratches out. At one point, I was leaning into it pretty heavy. It did no damage or hazing to the clear coat at all. The deepest scratch...

    Passenger Airbag Light Staying On

    Anybody ever have the bright yellow passenger airbag light stay on? Driving down the road I heard a distinctive chime and didn't think anything of it. Then, a short while later, I noticed that the passenger airbag light was on. It's located in a dark strip just above the climate controls...

    Dealer Invoice

    Just wondering if someone has the invoice price on a 2019 CX-9 in white. Do all dealerships buy inventory from Mazda at the same price? If not, how does that work? Thanks in advance!

    CX-9 Brake Life

    Went into the dealership this morning for 5000 mile service. Loved the relaxed vibe in the shop. Met a mechanic there who gave me 20 minutes of his time. He answered all my Mazda questions. Nice guy! He said with normal driving, the brakes on the CX-9 should be good up to 80-90k miles...

    Outsourcing Parts?

    Does anyone know if the current, non-Ford Mazdas contain any outsourced parts that are in the main components like engine, drivetrain, frame, electric system, etc? If so, where are they made? Again, this applies to the newer Mazda models only. I know certain plastic pieces and other accessory...

    AWD or FWD

    Hey Mazda Cats... First off, I like this forum. Most of you guys seem to know what you're talking about. So.... Soon to be 2018 CX-9 owner here. I'm trying to decide on what drivetrain to get in a GT. I realize that the AWD might have better handling but it's more expensive when "signing zee...

    2016-18 CX-9 Narrow Front Cabin

    Hello all, I've been reading forum posts for a while trying to learn more about all sides of owning a new Mazda CX-9. After taking two 20-25 minute test drives of a 2017 CX-9 Signature, I was left with a great experience and like the vehicle overall. However, the one thing that I've been...
