    Trailer brake controller concerns (2018 CX-9)

    Thank you, I will have to look into those videos. I connected mine on a brake pedal wire, as when I was installing it that is what my directions said. Unfortunately the trailer brakes do not actuate when the car brakes using cruise control, only when I step on the brake pedal.

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

    2016 78k miles. I think my battery is nearing the end of its life. I park in a garage so the car normally stays pretty warm, but I went camping in the mountains a few weeks ago and it got chilly (50F) in the mornings. There was a noticeable lag after I pushed the button until the engine turned...

    DRSS Issue? (Distance Recognition Support System)

    My 2016 CX-9 does not show a car until I engage radar cruise control and there is a car. My wife’s 2017 mazda3 shows a car if any time it detects it, cruise control on or off. I like the 3’s way better.

    2018 CX-9 fuel tank capacity question

    I consistently go over 420 miles before I fill up, when not towing. My miles to empty are often in the 440 range. The most I have put into my tank was 18.8 gallons, and I normally fill up before the miles to empty hit 0.

    2016~2023 2017 Does Apple Carplay Retrofit Remove the existing Mazda Navigation

    No, the Mazda navigation should still be there. My guess is the dealer took the SD card out and misplaced it and that is all that is missing.

    Smart City Brake Support" I guess?

    I used to sometimes start pulling into my garage when the door is still opening but above my hood. I quit doing that after the car twice applied full brakes as it thought I would hit the door. Glad it works as it should.

    CX-9 Automatic Climate Control doesn't work on warm startup

    Mine does this after sitting in the hot garage. I think it is just a sensor feeding the computer incorrect data. The car thinks its really hot outside and will try to cool the interior down because that is what the sensor is telling it. Once I start driving and the OAT sensor reads the correct...

    I have not had any problems. I think the hitch itself keeps the bumper pretty well in place.

    Windshield divot and crack on 2018. Possible replacement woes?

    I had a crack and got mine replaced by safelite. They got the glass from Mazda as there were, according to them, no aftermarket shields available. I watched them put the windshield in, it was pretty interesting, calibrate all the stuff and so on. No issues for the last 1.5 years. I think the...
