2008 Mazda CX-9 Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
2008 Mazda CX-9 Touring AWD (JD Powers SUV of the Year). It is truly fun to drive. The power/handling in the SUV will blow you away. You feel like your driving a sports car. The interior design is above average and the third row seating is actually usable by adults. This SUV has many wonderful selling points. But my CX-9 has had some durability/quality issues. At 12,000 miles I needed new wheel bearings installed on front right side. At 22,500 I needed four new tires installed ($875.00) and yes I rotated them every 6000 miles. It didnt help! This SUV eats up tires like you cant believe. Now at 24,000 miles I need new wheel bearings on the driver side and the rear climate control is acting
Power and handling. Great in the snow with the right tires. Third row seating room.
Improve overall durability and tire life expectancy. Fuel economy.
