    Navigation Chip Failure

    It drives me crazy that Mazda calls it a chip, as if the GPS chip is in there. It's just a regular old SD card that contains the map data. I think the updater software might even let you use your own SD card as long as you've backed up the one that came with your car, but not 100% sure on that.

    Just curious, why do you want to disable it?

    CX9 Overall Reliability and Owner Satisfaction

    Just out of curiosity, what ambient lighting does the Signature have that the GT doesn't? In my GT I have front door pockets, door handles, and center console (via overhead light), and rear door pockets all illuminated by LED ambient lighting. Seems like the important places are covered.

    Very slight scraping noise while moving

    Just bought a 2019 GT about a month ago. It has 750 miles now, and I've come to notice a very, very slight scraping sound once I get above about 15 mph that seems to get slightly louder with speed, but even at its loudest, it's quiet enough that most people wouldn't notice it (my wife can't...

    What did you pay for your CX-9?

    They switched to new LED headlights in July for the GT and Signature trims, and they perform MUCH better than the old LED headlights. You can compare the differences in performance here:

    What did you pay for your CX-9?

    Some dealerships say they will give you the Costco discount, but they arent really part of the Costco Auto program. If the dealership is part of the Costco Auto program, they will have a Costco rep working there that handles all sales through the program. You need to go to the Costco Auto...

    302hp RAV4

    I dont agree that the RAV4 has equivalent interior space to the CR-V. I dont know how Honda does it, but the interior of the CR-V seems bigger than every other compact to me even though the exterior dimensions arent bigger. When I put my daughters rear facing car seat (which is admittedly large)...

    Any Word on the 2020 CX-9 Changes?

    Here's a video of a 2020 Grand Touring on a dealer lot. Looks like the GT doesn't have that center console between the captain's chairs and is just open. I also noticed that the front center console top is now matched to the leather color. On my 2019...

    What did you pay for your CX-9?

    Just picked up a 2019 Grand Touring FWD in Snowflake White Pearl for $35,000. I really just went for a test drive, but the price was a lot better than I expected. MSRP is $42,085, so over $7,000 off (freak) ($4,335 dealer / Costco discount and $2,750 Mazda discount). I used the Costco Auto...

    2016~2023 Blind spot & lane keep not functional

    I just bought a 2019 CX-9 GT after our 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe Ultimate was purchased back by Hyundai because it started smelling like coolant and they couldn't figure out how to fix it. When I bought the Santa Fe, one of the things I was most excited about was the lane keeping assist with lane...

    IIHS rating for pre and post July 2019 CX-9 Led Headlights

    Kind of a bummer, huh? Seems like Mazda should do a recall if the ones built before July are so bad. I just bought a 2019 GT myself, but luckily mine was built in August. It appears Mazda used the poor rated LED headlights in GT and Signature trims between February 2018 and June 2019. 2018...
