    Fuel efficiency 2.5T (Premium vs Regular fuel)

    I kept some records when I first bought my 2019 CX-9 GT and did manual mileage calculations and found that the trip computer mileage was quite accurate. I reside in a rural area and drive a mix of back roads and highway and the best I've ever gotten is 24 MPG. Typically I get 21-22 MPG running...

    Is the CX-9 4 cylinder engine enough?

    My 2019 CX-9 GT is the first 4 cyl that I've had since a VW Scirroco from back in the 80's and I was hesitant to go from a 6 cyl 2013 Toyota Venza to this vehicle. The turbo is relatively lag free and the way the drivetrain is tuned you get lots of low end torque so performance is decent. It's...

    2016~2023 CX-9 Auto retract side mirror problem and blurry HUD

    Thanks for posting this TSB, I had shown the dealer the earlier version of this TSB #09-011/20 but it didn't explain my bizarre problem. Obviously something's up with these mirrors on some vehicles. Hope it fixes your problem.

    2016~2023 CX-9 Auto retract side mirror problem and blurry HUD

    My mirrors are solid once deployed and they fully extend. The problem I've had is that when the car is parked and ignition off and unlocked sometimes when you open the driver's side door the mirrors will start to automatically fold, but only part way then will redeploy. If you open and close...

    2016~2023 Ultimate “Grand Tourer”

    Congrats and I can't blame you considering the coolant/oil/cylinder head issues that have been discussed on the forum in detail. I drove a 4-Runner back in 2013 and it drove better than I would have expected but the poor mileage was a no-go. Considering the car market these days it sounds like...

    2016~2023 CX-9 Auto retract side mirror problem and blurry HUD

    I have a 2019 CX-9 GT and have experienced some odd behavior from my power folding mirrors that I've posted about here previously and based on the lack of replies just figured I'm an outlier. Also the dealer has been unable to replicate my particular issue but it continues to happen...

    Lane Keep Assist Not Detecting Lines Consistently

    The 2019 CX-9 GT that I have is the first I have owned with this feature. I would say that it is hit or miss depending on how faded the road lines are, ambient lighting, and the angle of the sun hitting the cameras. It is something I would never rely on that's for sure.

    2022 CX-9 Rear speakers virtually no volume

    I'm hardly an audiophile or sound system expert by any means and thought the old 8-track player in my '68 Camaro sounded great back in the '70's. That being said, I've had a Bose system in a few different cars now with my 2019 CX-9 GT being the latest and I have to say I'm not super impressed...

    What dashcam are you using?

    I just installed a Garmin 57 using the Dongar adapter to power it from the frameless rearview mirror. It was simple to do and took maybe 15-20 minutes tops. The camera works well and will fit my needs just fine. If you require 24/7 operations then this option will not work for you nor will it...

    Looking at a 2022 CX-9 Signature

    Well, right off the bat you might take a look at these two threads. I have a 2019 CX-9 GT FWD with about 17K miles on it and so far no trouble.

    2016~2023 Sirius XM Tuner Not Connecting

    I have a 2019 CX-9 GT with a bit over 16K miles on it here in the US. I'm retired and don't drive it every day but in the past month or so I've increasingly had problems with the Sirius XM tuner connecting with the infotainment system. I will get "Connecting to Sirius XM Radio" and a little...

    Strange clicking sound from driver's door window switch

    I have at 2019 CX-9 GT and I have not heard the clicking sound that you described but my folding mirrors will occasionally act in the manner that you describe when the car is off and I just open the driver's door. The mirrors will start to fold closed and then abruptly stop and fully deploy...

    What made you buy a CX-9?

    When I purchased my 2019 CX-9 GT FWD I cross shopped it with the Highlander Platinum Ltd and the Honda Pilot and at the time I was driving a 2013 Toyota Venza and had a very positive experience with it so was inclined towards the Highlander. Also I wanted a V-6 engine so the CX-9 was at the...

    2016+ CX-9 Owners - Have you replaced your battery yet?

    Update: Last month I had my 2019 CX-9 GT FWD in for routine oil change and 15K service stuff. I've had the car just about 3 years at that point and I asked them to check the battery. The service advisor acted like I was wasting their time but when the performed the test the battery failed...

    Any current gen model year to avoid?

    I cross shopped the 2019 Highlander Platinum Ltd. and Honda Pilot when I purchased the CX-9 in 2019. The Toyota had issues with the Nav system/voice controls in that trim level that was reported on forums but the dealership was in denial about. There was an awkward workaround and a later...

    Any current gen model year to avoid?

    My experience with my 2019 CX-9 GT FWD thus far has been uneventful but I'm retired and don't drive much and only have a little over 14K miles on the odometer. If you peruse this forum the number one big issue with the Gen2 CX-9's would seem to be a significant coolant leak with the 2.5L Turbo...

    Infotainment Screen cracking (spider cracks)

    It amazes me how many times, regardless of the brand, that the dealership folks "never heard of" whatever issue you bring to their attention. Something like this that's been a known problem for quite some time somehow escaped their notice. Forums like this have been invaluable to me in...

    Key Fob Batteries

    My 2019 CX-9 GT FWD gives me low fob battery warning messages and even though testing the battery shows it's still good it's cheap enough just to put a new one in just to be safe. Just had to do it last week after dismissing earlier warnings.

    2021 CX-9 Burning oil

    I've been driving since the mid 70's and owned numerous cars, both domestic and foreign makes, and have never had an oil burner. With my 2019 CX-9 GT FWD I never check the oil to be honest and would never expect there to be a problem with oil consumption in a 'new' vehicle with only 13K...
