I have a 2009 Mazda CX-9. Two days ago while I was at work - the car was locked and turned off - the 2 front windows rolled down and the sunroof was open.
Your front windows and moon roof will open if you press and hold down the "unlock" button on your remote. You must have held it too long. Your dealer should have mentioned this feature to you.
To be sure, go and try it. I bet your front windows and moon roof will open!

My 09 Sport seems to keep blowing air from the rear vents even if I turn off the rear controls on the dashboard. If anyone can confirm they had the same issue or if that's the way it's supposed to work I'd sure appreciate it.

There is a TSB for it.
The relays need to be replaced.
Search for that. It only cost a few dollars and you can DIY.
If under warranty, dealer should be able to do that on the spot.
Most dealers should be aware of this issue.

Oh yeah....been through that...many, many times.... and they replaced the relays, I gave up on after numerous issues, and having the dealership act as if I was the problem. Mine was an 07 CX9 . If I remember correctly I had mine in the shop 13 times in about an 8 or 9 month period.. I really liked that vehicle, but I seemed to spend more time in their filthy loaners...never again

Do you still have the CX9? Seems not.
Anyway, 2007 was the 1st year model.
Like any vehicle of 1st year, it has more issues than later ones.
The list of TSBs also confirms my point. Longest for 2007.
For me, 2+ year of owning a 2008 CX9 GT AWD + Moonroof + NAVI with 29K,
only 1 issue with window failing to roll down due to insufficient glue at factory.
Took care of that at oil change.
Either I was extremely lucky or you were extremely the opposite.
ConsumersReport shows that CX9 is a very reliable vehicle overall.
(mostly red dots, not black)
My guess is that you were the unlucky one.
Personally, I would avoid all 1st year model even for a Toyota or Honda.

You are right about it was the 1st year for that...and I kind of expected some issues...that goes for any new model .
And I will not bad mouth them or bash them, I have driven RX7 and a few other models and they were great, and a lot of fun.
My CX9 was actually fun to drive , but I guess the bugs had to be worked out...Quick story....the day I took delivery...nice new car smell the works...jumped in with my wife and drove off. She took a CD out of her bag for the ride....pressed the CD button, waited to say "IN", tried to put the CD in, won't go....hmmm pulled over to take a closer look. AH Ha ! there is a CD player, they forgot to cut the slot so you can insert it... ..I said "I dont think this car is done yet" X-D

You know, a lot of customers' dissatisfaction about an automobile was caused by lousy dealers, not the automaker itself. The dealer may be incapable of repairing or diagnosing issues properly and quickly. The dealer could fail to prep a new vehicle before delivery to customers. Those are issues caused by dealers. Mazda is not very outstanding in this area. My favorite dealer is superb, however. My nearest one is not.
US laws on automobile is structured in such a way that the automakers have very little control over how their dealers conduct business other than some forms of reward system.
A great vehicle needs a great dealer to support it. Any brand of vehicles have their share of issues. Some may have less than others. I own my vehicles for 7-8 years typically. I usually expect 1 or 0 problem with them. Other than the infamous BMW I once owned, of course.
P.S. I don't buy 1st year model, ever.

Some dealers are lazy and don't care. I wish Mazda will do something about it.
#284 of 547 Air Conditioner Problems
May 26, 2010 (5:56 pm)
We have a 2008 CX-9 Grand Touring and just recently when we shut off the vehicle the A/C comes on full blast for about 2 minutes.
Has anyone experienced this with their CX-9 and what did you do about it? I know I can take it to the dealer, but if it something simple and a DYI then I would prefer to do that.
Thanks for the help.
#285 of 547 FWD CX-9 Sport Wind Noise
May 26, 2010 (6:37 pm)
I bought a 2010 CX-9 SPORT FWD, and so far everything seems OK except for the wind noise that keeps coming from the driver window and (possibly) from passenger side as well.
I usually notice this sound when I drive above 40-50 mph. It seems like the noise is coming from the top of the window. I don't feel any air coming inside though. I took it to the dealer today and they are saying that everything seems OK. Just to check, my dealer let me drive another CX-9 Sport but I heard the same wind noise from driver side. I am trying to ignore it as much, but it is just freaking me out whenever I go above 50 mph. I am not sure what do to do. Has anyone experienced something like this? I have roof rails as well, but that much noise can not be just because of roof rails?
