    2015 Looking Good

    My daughter was home from college for Christmas and I detailed her car (my car since I paid for it) before she went back. Last summer I did a ceramic finish on it, and yesterday I put a new top coat of Si02 spray from Blackfire Magic. Car looks great with a smooth wax like finish.

    I have a 2017 CX 9 GT, which we love. The other day the Nav failed to load and it said our car wasn't equipped with a Nav chip, but we obviously had one. I turned the car off, and removed the chip. After a few minutes I re-inserted the chip and started the car. The infotainment system said...

    We have a 2017 CX 9 GT also. Had it about 20 months with 25,000 miles on it. At my last oil change the dealer stated I'm down to "yellow" on the rear pads and recommended doing a rear brake job.

    16-17 owners ... what warranty work have you needed?

    I had the infotainment screen replaced due to the screen going black intermittently or not coming on when put in reverse. Other than that, my 17 has been great.

    After Market Nav Chip

    Has anyone purchased the after market chips sold on Amazon or Ebay? They seem cheaper than the "dealer" chips. But I'm worried about the knock off chips not working. Thanks Scott
