    Great plan! For maintaining the finish, I've heard that Turtle Wax Spray n' Shine Ice is excellent. You just wash the car, then spray it on and buff off. You can also apply it over a wax to extend...

    Fact! One of the biggest reasons I bought my Lexus IS250 vs. a C250/300 or a 3-series is because of the reliability factor. High repair/maintenance costs scared me away.

    Lol. I just had an internet chat with the dealer (first link). He supposedly had Mazda reps there with him at the time. I asked him how the 3rd row is accessed in the Signature trim, which has a...

    I'm sure a big chunk of that $1300 is the shop labour involved with taking the dash apart, replacing the CMU, then putting everything together again. If it were me, I'd try sourcing a used CMU on...

    What kind of washer fluid are you using? Some fluids can form a buildup on the nozzles that eventually clogs them. I would check to see if the nozzles are clogged. It's possible that there may be a...

    What SonicBoy said above.

    Personally, I've had the X Ice Xi3 and the WS-80 on my two previous cars. On the CX-9 I have DM-V2s. I wasn't let down by any of them.

    I've had the CX-9 loaded down with an extra 1100+lbs of cargo, plus my wife and infant daughter, for a 12-hour road trip. The car performed much, much better than I thought it would.
