I hope you get this message. I have been a techician for 38 years and have seen your problem many times. The wind noise is coming from under the bottom of the windshield because it is not sealed correctly to the body. Take a towel and stuff it between the dash an the windshield bottom as you drive and have the noise. If the noise lessens alot this is for sure the problem. The frost you talk about six inches up on the windshield is a "for sure" give away that this is your problem. Have a windshield company take out the windshield and renew the sealer. Your problem will be solved.

Just bought a CX-9 in May. Same problem with shuddering brakes after 5,000 miles. I thought that they were going to give out on I95 last weekend. Also, I have had problems with the paint and cheap sheet metal buckling during washing and waxing. If dealer cannot fix brake problem, I plan to return car under Maryland's Lemon Law. I could see brake problem evolving into a recall issue.

Anyone know if the install of the NEW ONSTAR mirror would interfere with any electronics etc on the CX-9, GT? Their website lists the car as compatible, would like it for my wife; I love onstar!dogdoc
#426 of 547 Indicator lights staying on
Aug 21, 2011 (4:45 am)
My TCS light, brake light and the car with the squiggly lines light won't turn off. My mechanic has looked the car over and can't find any issues with the car that would cause those lights to stay on. Has anyone else experienced this?

My 2009 kept doing this and it turned out to be low brake fluid in the reservoir. Mine was almost empty and filling it fixed the problem.

#430 of 547 Mazda CX-9 Exhaust Issues
Aug 22, 2011 (8:57 am)
1st problem - Sounds like my exhaust manifold gasket has gone out because I can hear the engine's RPMs much more than before. I believe it is the manifold leak because when I turn the wheel to the right it seems to get even louder. Is this common on the CX-9 and is my thinking correct? I do have some rust on the exhaust, especially the connect right as the exhaust comes down from the engine and heads towards the back of the truck.
2nd problem - is common for the exhaust to squeak, especially in the rear when going over bumps or on start up? Is there a fix for this?

Hi dogdoc1997 - I do some digital work for OnStar, and as you stated, your Mazda CX-9 is compatible with the FMV Mirror. As for your question about the electronics, as long as anything in the car doesn't work from your current mirror, such as backup sensor, compass, temperature, or auto dimming, there should be no problem interfering with the electronics. Since I am not sure exactly what your vehicle has, I want to give you a link that has more information on fit criteria - http://www.onstar.com/fitcriteria
Let me know if you have any more questions!
