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


Fuel mileage is poor. We have taken 2 long trips,one West to Yellowstone, Glacier, Tetons and the Black Hills. 2nd was to East Coast Fall Colors trip At the toll booths one needs to accellerate quickly after paying in order to merge with the other cars and we found that during this hard accelleration the transmission would not up shift beyond 4th gear even with pedal fully released, the only way to up shift was to maive the lever into the manual position then force the up shift manually. We have taken the car in to Morrie's on 2 occasions but was not able to dispaly the problem to the service people. We soon start another long trip and have concerns about the transmission failing

Best Features

Performance over all improved during the last apart of our 1st trip including mileage and accelleration. We live in Minnesota and find the heating system is great, but the seat heaters could be warmer.

Worst Features

Transmission up shifting during hard accelleration. Improved fuel mileage. Improve entrance clearance as I hit my head getting in. Include a instant mileage read out in dash.
