Could your 2012 Mazda CX-9 be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years).

Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty CX-9) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Mazda CX-9 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Mazda CX-9 to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil.
