CX9 Australian Review
By David Hill on


2008 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


I've had my CX9 now for 2 years and have done 60,000 Km (35,000 miles). I understand they are only released in North America and Australia (RH drive). 3.7 L V6 is great, the leather interior is well finished, goes hard but drinks fuel just as hard. Gas in Australia is $1.35 per litre, which means a tank is over $80 and I get about 450 km per tank. A few minor problems, drive shaft replaced the first week, factory fault with a bad highway shudder, always repaired fast without fuss. I do a lot of Brisbane inner city parks and I can nail the big bastard into most car spaces. I'd buy another, I love it, we call it "Mazilla" as it is Japanese and large.

Best Features

Looks, motor, Dash at night, blue color, Bose stereo, finished like a German car.

Worst Features

Tyres to replace in Australia are $2,200 for set of 4. Does it really need such expensive low profile tyres for an SUV?
