Besides oil changes and replacing rear brake pads, i did have problem with the hissing and squeaky front brakes (The dealership replaced the brake pads + rotors but the problem still came back from time to time). The windshield has a lot of chips (some called it a sugar glass here in the forum:)). Other than that, everything is good.
Agree on the windshield. I've already picked up two sizable chips in 1500 miles. Of course one is right in line of driver sight. This glass is supposed to be thicker sound insulating glass so I hope when it's replacement time it they can get the proper OEM glass.. Not sure why this seems to brittle.

Not my vehicle but was at my local Mazda dealership for an oil change last month and the service guy told me that they were also servicing another CX-9 (2016 MY) that was just beaten down in terms of use with high mileage (over 160K kms) and since they were curious so the mechanic took apart the turbo, apparently to see if there was any damage or deterioration and actually found it still intact and in excellent condition. I guess just a testament to the reliability and longevity of Mazda engines despite the DPT being a new design...

My 2016 currently has 72,000 Miles. Nothing major so far, just the usual wear and tear parts. Done synthetic oil changes every 5000 miles, top tier gas only, replaced tires once, rear brake pads twice, front pads once. Spark plugs replaced at 40,000. Only had one software update done to resolve the hesitation at startup. Haven't done the fuel induction service yet as there has been a lot of debate about that if it's just a way for service depts to make money or is there real advantage especially if you are using top tier fuel. Other than that she has been solid vehicle.

Interesting about rear brakes. Have you noticed any unusual excess wear on them? I would imagine front brakes give out more frequently.

I think that the cruise control uses the rear brakes to slow down, given that the rear brakes are tasked with slowing down such a large vehicle it wouldn't surprise me that they need to be serviced more often.

Thanks YCT. Man, I learn new things every day!

I have a 2016 Signature with 88 K. Mostly highway miles, I have a long commute. I change oil every 5K, fuel service at 45K, brake flushes, replaced tires at 66K, transmission service at 70K, doing plugs now, but basically this car is amazing. Brakes still good and gets 25 mpg. This is one of the lowest maintenance cars I've owned.

Sixspeed, I was told the transmission doesn't need to be serviced. How did you get it done?

EmmanuelN, as YCT stated there is a lot more use of the rear brakes from what I have been told on the CX-9. I was concerned of possible dragging but that was checked out and everything was fine.
