    Try driving over a speed bump a bit faster than normal. See if you can shake the sensor's float loose so it starts working again.

    For a small cost and a few minutes we get a much better sound. Bose embarrassed themselves with this subwoofer.

    Does the running board serve any purpose except to get mud on your pants when you exit the car?

    You can un-rotate your tires. Leave the cupped one on the back unless it is too uncomfortable for you. Rotation is to extend the life of the tire tread. If you're OK leaving the cupped one on the...

    Lucky, fat edge forward.

    Bing, OK in the car wash.

    The problem is that the clearance is too tight. On that flexible shaft the rise of the curvature of the roof probably won't allow for the...

    See if an independent shop wants the work. It's bound to cost less than the dealer.

    Another example of the service writer guessing about the problem instead of a technician looking at it. As we all know, the underside of the engine is covered by a plastic piece for aerodynamics. ...

    One thing at a time. The oil leak--the oil pan is steel. It's very unlikely that it could be cracked. Most likely is that the (not-temporary) drain plug needed a new gasket. 35 item. The other...

    No, a vacuum pump at the calipers will not remove air bubbles that are in the top of the system. You can't pull a bubble downhill. Bleed at the master cylinder, perhaps with a bleed nipple if there...

    Where can you bleed the air up up high near the master cylinder? Bubbles rise. If there's air in high points, it'll never get bled out at the wheels.

    I forget why I disabled mine, but it wasn't satisfactory. Bose didn't do their best job in these cars. The subwoofer is an embarrassment to Bose. A couple of dollars worth of damping material on...

    I think special glass is needed to have the reflection that is the heads up display we see. If this is the case, and if any 2nd gen CX-9s don't have the HUD, then the correct windshield is...

    Thank you for this clarification. While the chain may actually be longer, it isn't due to stretch. It is due to wear in the pins and bushings. It's this wear that is weakening the chain as well as...

    It will be no problem to switch to synthetic engine oil or to switch back to conventional oil. There's a lot of misinformation out there.
