    How many miles do you have on your CX-9

    I would like to know how many miles people have on their cx-9's before encountering any real problems. I currently have 31 thousand miles and the only thing i have go wrong with it was a stress crack on my drivers side mirror which happened around 8k miles. The only other thing that it will need is a tranny fluid replacement since the fluid is getting dark. Also out of curiousity has anyone reached 100 k miles yet.

    We have 31K on a 2009 (wife puts on lots of miles shuttling the kids around). I just had the trans fluid changed Saturday since it was pretty dark along with an oil change. I've had it in for them to look at the aux port, which we have had problems cutting in and out when something it plugged in (never really resolved, they just said don't stuff so much stuff in the center console). That works sometimes and other times it doesn't. I have a feeling there is a short, so I may try it soon and take it back before the warranty is up. Problem is it isn't consistent so if they can't replicate it they tell me there is nothing they can do. The other thing was the rear hatch was acting flaky but they were able to "reset" it by simply using the key card. No issue with it since. Other than those small items, we've had no major issues so far.

    I have 53K on my 07' and I have had a door switch control module replaced at 5K and a passenger vent control motor replaced at 48kish, oh and I did my brakes and new rotors at 31K.

    12000 trouble free miles. Gas and two oil changes are all I have done so far.

    11K...2 oil changes...one tire rotation. Service tech checked all the boxes on the "full service report card" showing that he had topped off all fluids. I checked before leaving the drive and found that he had not touched the washer reservoir, so I jacked them up and they made good on it. I also marked my wheels to make sure that they did the rotation...never can tell with some of these lazy techs.

    37K miles.
    Two issues so far
    - styrofoam inside rear doors went loose blocking window rolling down
    - A/C relays replaced
    Both minor issues taken care of when doing oil changes.

    I highly recommend tranny fluid change (though not required by Mazda)
    1st around 30K, and 15K afterwards.

    What is the basis for this recommendation. Every 15K miles is WAY more often than any auto transmission manufacturer recommends. Please provide evidence before making statements like this. That is an expensive and wasteful practice if not backed up by engineering requirements.

    When you had this problem did your window make a horrible squeaking sound when you rolled it down? If so, I think I have the same problem now.

    I have to get the relay replaced that causes the blower to go on after you shut off the car. I also think I have the styrofoam problem in one of my windows.

    '08 GT has 23k and only issue was the silver plastic on the doors was replaced a year ago under TSB. Need to take it to the dealer soon to look into and noise in/near the left rear door. Sounds like change sliding in a plastic tray at quick acceleration or during braking. Cannot find the dang cause.

    I have only had one problem and that has been with the auto headlamps.They come on in the shade and won't go back off. I had the dealer adjust the sensitivity and it didn't help. I'll have to take it back in. I absolutely love this vehicle thought.
    I replaced a 2006 Grand Cherokee Limited With the Hemi engine and there is no comparison. I was in the market for a New 2011 G Cherokee but choose the Mazda GT CX9. I am very happy my new 9 in every way.

    My 2011 Grand Touring FWD, purchased 12/11 (with 490 miles, after dealer traded from NC->MD, me driving it), has 5400 miles, now 2.5 months later. A lot, mostly thanks to my job in December and January with 95 miles a day of commuting roundtrip. That stopped and my mileage hasn't changed much since the start of this month.

    No problems, oil change at 3k miles and had a loose shroud around the steering wheel snapped back together. iPod module installed in December, great but more and more finicky daily. Trying to decide when my next oil change will be and also a rotate. Thinking 6k, not sure.

    It's a blast to drive, and I love it. Solid, smooth, tight, fast, and even efficient. Glad I got the 2011 with the revised programming, in that regard, have averaged 20-22mpg every day since purchase.
