2012 Mazda CX-9 Questions & Answers

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Mazda? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Mazda CX-9? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small.

Double check your owner's manual to ensure your CX-9 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • Does my CX-9's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2012 CX-9’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Mazda's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
