    2013 CX9 - Driver's side won't blow cold A/C

    When trying to get A/C to turn on, we get ice cold air from the passenger vents and rear vents but the driver's vents blows ambient temp air. It occurs whether we are in single zone or dual zone mode. It occurs whether in floor or vent mode. Heater works fine. I'm guessing it is an actuator on...

    Towing with the 2.5T

    Has anyone put the new 2.5T to the test with towing? I've been towing with my '13 V6 and just curious how the smaller engine handles the load.

    What would it take to make a CX-9 stick shift?

    I love my CX-9 but every winter I go through withdrawal of not being able to drive stick shift because my RX7 and REPU don't go out in salty conditions. So I'm curious, is there a manual transmission that could bolt up to the CX9 drivetrain? Was it ever offered in other countries or anything...

    If you owned a '13, would you upgrade to a '16?

    My dealer called and wants to get me into the new model for the same payment. I've heard this pitch before but I'm just curious what others think. I bought mine as a CPO to save money back in '14. It was a rental so it's got some scuffs here and there. The '13 infotainment has been mostly...

    CX9 7-pin tow harness installation question

    I used the OEM harness to get brakes and turn signals. I ran two wires up to the front of the vehicle, one for +12v and another for the brake controller. I grounded to the frame (not the OEM harness). Last part is the reverse lights. Anyone know where I can easily tap into the reverse lights...

    Up is down. Down is up.

    So Mazda displays your radio station presets as a vertical list in the 2013 CX-9 (and likely the 2014+ and CX-5 too). 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. While listening to station 2, press the down arrow on your steering wheel while watching the screen. Your eye will expect station 3 to be highlighted since...

    Any way to swap out the white lights for dash/radio and replace with red?

    It's odd that the HUD and HVAC is red while the radio buttons and dash guages are white. Red is much easier on the eyes at night. Is there a bulb replacement kit I can install or something?

    2013 CX-9 Bose wiring?

    Can I tap into the pre-amp outputs so I can run my own amps and speakers? I'd rather not invest in a head unit if I don't have to. I have a processor that can sum channels, I'll just need to know where to find those channels. My MS6 had an amp under the seats that I removed and repurposed the...

    Aftermarket audio options

    I've got a Mazdaspeed6 and I'm considering upgrading to a CX-5. I run the stock Bose head unit but have replaced the amps and speakers with high end aftermarket equipment. I use a digital processor to fine tune the audio. How difficult would it be to connect all this equipment to the CX-5...

    Has anyone ever shipped a car from coast to coast?

    I'm looking for auto transport reviews and recommendations. I need a vehicle transported from CA to NH, preferably in an enclosed trailer. I filled out an online form and got some quotes, but some of the companies are pretty pushy with getting in touch with you and that has me nervous about...
