What have you done to your CX-9 today?

Yes that’s exactly what I mean. Idk what I might be doing wrong but I went to ikea for a relative and I couldn’t figure it out. I tried to fold them all the way down to make the flat service and no cigar. I wound up sliding them forward as much as possible. We wound up going back in my other suv that doesn’t give me this headache.
wonder wth I’m doing wrong. Dealerships seem not to know either considering the feedback I’ve gotten from them
 
I think You need to use the lever on the side of the seat ( at the bottom) that changes the angle of the seat back. Not the one besides the headrest that gives access to the third row.
its in the manual as well. I am surprised your dealer didn’t know, this should be common knowledge to them.

As @youri pointed out, the lever on the top of the seat will fold the seat forward partially and also slide the seat forward. It's used mainly for 3rd row entry. The lever near the bottom of the seat allows you to fold the seat flat.

I think the same applies to models with captain's chairs.

Thank you so much. Funny cause a lady at the dealer was getting an oil change and she said her bench second row doesn’t go flat either. I’m going to try it tomorrow. It is funny 2 dealerships gave me 2 different answers. I guess this is why I didn’t buy my cx9 locally lol.

I took out my drop-in k&n washable filter this weekend and washed her out nice and clean, used the K&N cleaning kit. She's all red again. After about 10 years, the rubber has not deteriorated and the filter shows no signs of wear. K&N really makes a good product. Only have to clean it out every couple two or three years. Kudos to K&N.

You only clean the air filter once every 2 or 3 years?

So I randomly swapped out the amber side marker light with a white led bulb since I had some extra laying around. I kinda like the result so I figured I’d share.

Looks good! I guess this can only be done on the Sport and Touring trims.

If the GT and Sig trims use a halogen for the side marker bulb then it can be swapped. I’m not sure if their headlamp is 100% all LED. It’s possible that it is halogen, I previously had a 2018 Mazda 6 which uses 100% LED minus the side running bulb which was halogen. Not sure why Mazda chose 1 bulb to be halogen out of a complete LED setup

I believe the CE, GT and Signature all have LED "eyebrows" instead of the halogen bulb. This is based on the photos of each model on MazdaUSA.com's builder. The Sport and Touring trims appear to have a thicker reflector where the bulb would be, while the other trims have a slimmer appearance.

Changed my oil yesterday. I'm all out now, so I think I'll switch over to the Kirkland Signature 5w30 if it's still on sale. Maybe I'll run one more UOA on the Kirkland 5w30 sometime in 2022 (just to see if there's a difference).
