    The new CX-9 and the XC90 were very nice, don't get me wrong. The new Signature CX9 is definitely nicer inside than my old GT model. The ride is fine and it is quieter than the previous generation,...

    I briefly considered both of these vehicles before electing to keep my 2010 CX-9 until it explodes.

    First the XC-90:
    Very nice inside. Quiet. Smooth. Gets pricey really fast when adding...

    The owner's manual has a maintenance schedule. At a minimum, do what it says.

    Some "bonus" items to consider:
    1. Water pump replacement
    2. Drain and refill transmission again.
    3. If AWD,...

    Pretty much every gasoline detergent package, as well as almost every fuel system cleaner, uses polyetheramine chemistry. These compounds include nitrogen in their makeup. I don't know if the exact...

    Fixing the existing motor is kind of a crap shoot. Once water gets into the oil, you have no idea if there was any damage done to the crankshaft bearings. I'd look into buying a used engine and...

    There is an access panel under the second row seats. It isn't difficult to get to, but you do have to remove the seats.

    Just so we are clear here, is the following timeline correct?
    1. You took it to the dealer because the light came on.
    2. They read the code, found P0016.
    3. They changed the oil and filter and...

    Straight from Mazda's website: "Fuel system: Advanced Direct Injection"

    It's a direct injection engine. You don't get 310 pound-feet of torque at 2000 rpm any other way.

    When you say the coolant was empty, what do you mean? The overflow bottle or the entire system?

    If you added water and it disappeared but didn't see any on the ground, that's pointing to a head...

    That's probably detonation. The gravelly sound, rough running and shaking, along with the total lack of power are all classic signs. What kind of gas are you using? Try a different station and/or...

    Sounds like you forgot to plug a sensor back in somewhere. Did you reconnect every wiring harness?

    Off the top of my head, there are several possibilities beyond a worn strut:
    1. Bad alignment. Cupping on one side is sometimes due to the rear toe angle being out of spec. I'm not sure if this is...

    Mazda's dealer network remains its Achilles heel in North America. I know Mazda has luxury aspirations, and the newer cars in top trim are really quite nice, but the dealer experience sucks. I've...

    The power train warranty is 5/60. The EGR one could be nothing or it could be a pretty big deal - the engine recirculates exhaust gas to avoid pinging and detonation at low RPMs. If that system is...

    You are on the flat part of the depreciation curve at this point, the car is probably declining in value $1k-2k per year. Financially, it makes sense to keep it. Even if you had to replace the...

    If you pull the drain plug on the transmission, about 3.5 quarts come out. An additional ~3.5 quarts remains in the torque converter, transmission cooler, hoses, etc.

    The new turbo4 has more torque than the old V6, at lower RPM, so I'm not sure what you are getting at with your first statement. The new direct injection turbo engines are really a totally different...

    I've never had the "BSM Off" light come on or flash, other than when the car is first started, but I can't remember exactly what it does at startup. Perhaps a sensor is failing? I recall a forum...

    I had to do the same thing - the drain kept clogging. I tried the compressed air trick first, which unclogged the drain and allowed about a gallon of water to come out. However, it clogged up again...

    Going from memory here, the biggest differences between the GT and the lower trims is:

    2. Blind spot monitor
    3. Interior leather and (fake) wood trim
    4. Turn signal...
