2007 Mazda CX-9 Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I love my CX-9, which is why I am so disappointed in its reliability. I don't know what is going on, but my CX-9 has 4,000 miles and it is in the shop for the second time. The first time the transmission went completely out and had to be replaced with 350 miles. It is now in the shop again for a leak in the transfer casing. I am concerned about keeping it (a bought it because I need a reliable car for my commute to college) but I really love my CX-9.
I love the body style and drive performance. Even though I am a mom hauling kids around, I feel like I am driving a sports car. The brakes are so smooth. My kids love the car too.
There are features of the keyless entry that I like, but locking it has to be done with the doors shut. Standing outside waiting for my kids to be out and with the doors shut before I can lock it can be annoying.
