    Not that I am aware of but as an example on the longevity and reliability of Mazda engines and the new DPT, last month I was at my local dealership getting my CX9 serviced, the sales rep I talked to said their service dept recently serviced a beat up 2016 CX9 with over 160K kms on it...mechanics...

    New guy here... Very interested in the CX-30

    am also considering the CX30 as I find our CX3 just a tad too small and the ride is just too firm, bumpy and jarring for my liking. If only the plastic cladding wasn’t too significant! Oh, and also looking at the upcoming Kia Seltos...taller and roomier than the CX30...

    Sad day, but it protected me well!

    yes totally agree having a dashcam helps validate the claim! Talking abt dash cams this week I know someone who got hit in the front fender driver side and the other driver claiming it was not his fault! If only the person I know had a dash am then it would refute other driver’s

    Is Mazda's upcoming CX-30 on your shopping list?

    I have a CX3 and compared the interior space...the CX30 is only larger by 3cm in the rear legroom!

    Tires! Any advice on new tires for my CX-9?

    I replaced the Falken OEMs 2 yrs ago with Nokian WRG3 SUV tires coz I needed tires that were winter rated yet you can run and use all year round. So far happy with them and they performed better than the Falkens esp during the winter months!

    Confused about IIHS Headlight rating for CX-9

    That’s why in some vehicles like Lexus, Audi, Volvo and other premium brands they have built in headlight washers that activate when you use the windshield washer! Unfortunately Mazda doesn’t have that...That’s one feature I liked when I had the Volvo!

I have experienced owning a prem/luxe vehicle in the past and what I can tell you is that after some time the novelty, prestige and status “wears out” and the vehicle just becomes, well just another vehicle! Then it really starts to...

    Just wondering any 2016/2017 CX9 owners if youve done or brake servicing was required. My 2017 Sig is 2 yrs old now but have never done the annual brake service that dealership recommends. Reason is my mileage is low (only 12K miles) and last fall the tire service center inspected the brake...

    I've noticed on two occasions already that whenever I go thru an automatic carwash whenever the spray is on top directly on the moonroof seam (where it opens/closes/tilt) that tiny droplets of water seem to occur.
