I have a 2007 Mazda CX-9 that the TCS lights come on after making a left turn only (the other skid mark lights come on as well). If I could go everywhere only driving straight, or turning right I would be fine, it started doing this about 6-7 months ago, I thought Mazda was going to come up with a fix for this or there was going to be a recall, but still nothing as of yet. When I cal the dealer, they have never heard of this situation or have ever heard of the TSB for the lights coming on, in that TSB is says to change the yaw sensor, but that thing is 500 bucks to take a guess to see if that would fix the problem. Anyone have any other ideas here? We are also having the same front end noises, squeaks, vibrations etc that everyone else seems to have here, they fixed one, turns out it was a broken motor mount that was making a grinding noise.
I am also having one other issue, we have no control over the rear AC/heater, has anyone else seen this, bad fuse, bad switch, any ideas here?
I loved this car when we bought, but the more I have to drive it with these issues, the less I like and the more I just want to get rid of it. This July it will be 4 years old with 63000 miles.
Thanks for any help,

I had a nasty crash in my 2010 cx-9 where i T-boned another car which jumped a light. A hard enough collision to roll the other car over. My airbag deployed, and both my 2 young children and i were unscratched. Even though the front end of the Mazda was completely destroyed, all the doors were still perfectly aligned and operating fine! This accident happened 5 hours ago, tomorrow I will be back at my Mazda dealer to order a new CX-9.. Awesome car!

Wow, glad to hear you are okay!
You may want to take a few days to get over the shock and soreness before heading for the dealer. People tend to rush out and buy a replacement car quickly after a wreck and you may spend more than you need to if you don't take your time. At least make sure any deposit you put down is refundable. Or get a rental and shop two or three quotes around.

Luckily it is a company vehicle, so not too concerned with pricing!

Wow! So glad you and your family are ok, and sure re-validates one of the reasons I got a CX9. These cars are so well built and rate great on crash tests. God Bless

Hey thanks for the reply, guess people that crash their cars arent the only ones that reply. Frustrating that Mazda has no answers, dealers have no answers, and I guess I am the only one seeing these problems, probably will be the last time I buy a Mazda if they cant get a problem fixed or their dealers dont ever seem to have a clue (I have tried both in my area before my warranty expired). If I go with an Audi or a Volvo at least it will be an experience when I go to the dealer, and if I did get a Volvo, at least everything is covered for the next 5 years.
