I recently went back to the dealer who sold us our 09 CX-9 to help my daughter buy a 11 CX-7. Dealer told us Mazda now specifies synthetic oil for all its SUVs. So, maybe that gelling issue is a trend and a problem worth addressing with the more expensive oil.

I need new tires as well for our CX-9 (FWD). Live in Minnesota and the last 2 years have been terrible driving with our original factory tires (67,000 miles and going). We obviously have lasted longer than some of the other posts. My question is has anyone purchased Falken Ziek 912s? Lots of posts for Yoko Parade Specs. Just wondering if the Falkens are good tire for winter driving.

Hi. Am trying unsuccesfully to buy online a replacement for the passenger tail light of my Mazda CX9 2010. Any suggestions of online retailers with a good supply of autoparts for the Mazda CX9?

I see six or eight brands of tail light assemblies at RockAuto.com for ~$100 to $200+. Some right, some left. With that many choices there must be other outfits selling similar items online.

Thanks so much, I did find it! Beleive it or not I had tried at least ten online auto part sites and most did not have the exact part, and a couple had priced it at US$600+!. I will always use them from now on, first. Thanks!

I have a cx-9 grand touring. Two questions. I have been hearing this kind of stretching noise coming from outside when I turn my wheels, it doesn't happen that often but when I'm doing a slow turn it sound like rubber stretching. It's not a boot or leak anywhere or the tires, not sure what it is. Under the car looks great. Question 2, I've started to notice in the morning it takes the car maybe an extra turn or two to turn over and start after it's been sitting all night. It's kept in a garage where it's about 60 degrees, so no issues with sitting outside. I think it might have something to do with the fuel pressure regulator. I think the battery, alternator, etc are fine. Last night, I went out after it sat for about 5 hrs and started it, and it started like normal. Then this morning I started it again, no problem and was very quick. However if I don't start it in the middle of the night, it takes the extra couple of turns to turn over. I don't think fuel pressure is staying in the line like it should after the car has sat for an extended period of time. I also have bumper to bumper warranty until 88k, and Iím approaching 85. I want to take it in and have the issues looked at and also a good inspection. Anything I should ask them to look for that can be replaced through warranty so I don't have to be out of pocket down the road.
