    Ahh okay thanks for that. I've always wondered that and couldn't tell based off the descriptions saying all trims get LED headlights.

    Probably a dumb question but what exactly is different between the Sig/GT headlights vs the touring?

    2018 CX-9 Recall for harness concern

    Dropped my car off on a Saturday morning. Didn't pick it up until the following Wednesday. Really sucked going from the CX-9 Signature to a Kia Sportage rental. I wish that I had detailed my car before I brought it in so that i might more easily notice any issues but nothing stood out to me. I...

    2018 CX-9 Recall for harness concern

    For those who have had this repair done, how long did it take and were you offered a loaner? Called my dealer again and they said that the recall is still incomplete but offered to take my car in after Mentioned that people have already reported that their recall repair has been performed.

    Omg she*s huge. Awesome dog. Couldn*t imagine toting her around in a cx9. You need an expedition or a van!

    2018 CX-9 w/ Collapsible Dog Crate (Pictures)

    Just wanted to share our setup for carrying our 85lb Lab. This is our first new car as a family and we wanted to find a solution for carrying around our large fur child while minimizing the amount of dog hair getting everywhere or scratching up the leather.

    Anybody have the OEM illuminated door sills on their 2019 CX-9?

    I have no idea how long they last. Im pretty sure they are the original battery and the car is probably about a year old. I agree 500 sounds like a lot and Id have a hard time forking that over for some door sills after I purchased the car as Id rather put it towards wheels. Thankfully they...

    Paint defect? Covered by warranty?

    Very odd because I have a paint chip in the exact same area. Don't even know how a rock chip could possibly get that area.

    Anybody have the OEM illuminated door sills on their 2019 CX-9?

    I*m pretty sure they are the factory option and not stock. I watched a couple 2018 signature review videos and did not see them.

    Anybody have the OEM illuminated door sills on their 2019 CX-9?

    Here is a picture of mine. They add a really nice touch to the signature. They automatically turn off after about 30 seconds or so.

    New 2019 CX9 Loving it

    I agree with everything Montanaman said. I absolutely love my 2018 Signature. I do wish I had the 2019 upgrades but I couldn*t justify them for 7-9k price difference. I picked my barely used signature with options and 4K miles for 35k. Glad you like your car.

    Remote Start Options / Recommendations / Things to consider?

    Can you open the door without the engine shutting off? Does radar cruise control work fine? Thank you.

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

    I test drove the 19 signature and didn*t notice any difference compared to the 18 signature I purchased after.

    CorkSport Intake CX-9 2016+

    Any updates from those of you using the intake? Any one have longer videos of acceleration runs and normal driving? I'm considering getting one but I'm paranoid about causing any damage to the engine by adding an intake without a tune.
