2007 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
Differential needed to be replaced at about 4,000 miles. Blue tooth stopped functioning at 9,000 miles. So far dealer has not figured out how to repair. First recall about same time for door checkers. Just waiting for the next problem. Unfortunate because it is quite a nice ride.
Turning radius is fantastic for a vehicle of this size. Interior space, i.e., front shoulder/leg room, head room, rear leg room, etc. Nothing special about the balance. At this level, most competitors have similar feature/equipment.
Quality. I'm beginning to believe that the price point has been achieved (given overall package content) as a result of inferior quality parts and engineering, etc! Preparation of tech staff to repair newer technology. True iPod/MPV connectivity with nav installed vehicles.
