    Heated seat not so hot

    Just noticed the wife‘s 2017 Signature driver’s side seat bottom heater not working. The lumbar does still work. I suffer with sciatica so run seat warmers year round. Is there a TSB for this fix? We are probably out of warranty 63k miles but maybe can get something off if this is a known issue.

    2016+ CX-9 Bumper Removal

    Rear Bumper Removal PDF? The wifey somehow backed into the neighbor's basketball hoop and cracked the chrome strip and scuffed the bumper. The scuff is not noticeable but the crack sticks out. Don't ask me how she managed to hit the pole despite having a backup camera and proximity sensors...

    Installing Silver Accents on 2016 Touring Edition

    The wifey somehow backed into the neighbor's basketball hoop and cracked the chrome strip and scuffed the bumper. The scuff is not noticeable but the crack sticks out. Don't ask me how she managed to hit the pole despite having a backup camera and proximity sensors, just glad it wasn't me. How...

    Chrome Delete?

    A little off topic, but has anyone removed the chrome strip on the rear bumper? How difficult is it to remove? Is it just two sided tape or are there clips? And where do I purchase a new one? The wifey somehow backed into the neighbor basketball hoop and cracked the chrome strip and scuffed...

    Disappointed with TPMS system.....do I understand it correctly?

    I'm 5'10" and I have dented my skull on the hard rubber guides that protrude on either side of the lift gate. Both times have been when dropping my daughter off at college and trying to quickly unload the vehicle. Grab a box, step up on to the curb, and BAM! Blackness followed by Stars*** and...

    The HUD aka ADD (Active Driving Display in Mazdaspeak) & Seat memory are not mutually exclusive.

    New '17 CX-9 vibration through brake pedal

    Is something rubbing up against the brake booster or the lines? Something like this happened on a VW Golf I had.

    Resetting the HUD to AUTO and then reprogramming the seats memory 1 & 2 did the trick for me.

    CQ: CX-9 diagonal and offroad test --- Fail!

    Former Series I Land Rover Discovery owner. Extremely capable off roader. Used to carry a tow strap and pulled out more than one stranded motorist. To lock the diff for 4 wheel low required two hands to move the level over to the low position. It was an overbuilt 4x4 for soccer mom SUV mall...

    Good call! Just checked my owners manual pdf and the HUD / Seat memory are not mutually exclusive.

    HUD / ADD - issue grrr...

    Nope, did not work. The HUD still defaults to manual dimmer setting upon start up which is way too bright and distracting for night time operation. It requires scrolling through the menu and selecting 'auto' before driving off. Am I doing something wrong?

    CQ: CX-9 diagonal and offroad test --- Fail!

    FAIL but WHY? Mazda CX-9 I-ACTIVE AWD vs Diagonal test Because Mazda SUV: S stands for Sport as in Sports Car not off road 4x4 sport. So if I get my Chevy 2500 plow truck stuck this winter don't pull it out with the wife's CX-9?
