    Who has got the highest mileage CX-9 out there?

    Just purchased a CX-9. Only my second Japanese vehicle. I keep my vehicles forever, do all the maintenance myself, and hope to do the same with this vehicle.

    Here are the vehicles I have had over the years and the mileage before I got rid of them.

    1984 300ZX - sold at 185,000 miles....replaced brakes and an alternator
    1998 Audi A4 - sold at 150,000..replaced brakes and a control arm
    2005 Mercedes Benz ML-350 - did the EGR at 40k, water pump at 80k, Front shocks and crankshaft position sensor at 100K, A/C Pulley Bearing at 105K. Vehicle has 118,000 right now and I have no intention of getting rid of it...

    I have read a lot about problems like transfer cases and water pumps, so I'd like to feel good about this purchase and have some people weigh in some super high mileage vehicles!!!!

    Thanks

    I think Mazda recommends replacement plugs at 60K which surprised me...my ML says 90K, I'm at 118K and haven't done them yet

    Obviously I don't have a high mileage one, but from what I've read on the forums these past 4 months since getting the car here are the threads I see pop up the most:

    Brakes - Undersized for the car, may require rotor replacement
    Ball joints - some have had issues with the ball joints up front around 100k, presumed to be due to undersized and weight of the vehicle
    coils/ignition - probably just follow the Mazda recco. there
    Trans/TC/Diff - as we all know, fluids in all of them probably every 30k

    Haven't read many other maintenance items pop up with them, but I'll add them if I see them.

    agree front brakes are undersized for the CX-9, though brakes are effective and no safety issues, the rotors wear too quickly, I am on my 2nd set of front rotors, had the first set turned 2x, and my new set of rotors is due to be turned after about 40k

    I think ours will be here soon. 1.5 years old and 48,000. The wife drives about 30k a year.

    I have our last vehicle (2004 Mazda Tribute) and started driving it September 15, 2013 when it was at 268k and 9 years old. Since I don't drive as much it's still only around 285k but it's out of commission rig now needing another alternator installed.

    We are at 88,000 on ours. Bought it used with 66,000 a year ago, its been great so far. Only complaints is that the drivers widow regulator or motor don't role up the window it's self, so you have to help it up. Need to take it to the dealer for warranty before the mileage is up.

    We bought the first CX-9 in our town back in 2007, and we currently have 189,000+ miles on it. Brutus is due for another oil change now that I think of it.

    Ive got a 2007 CX9 GT AWD, fully loaded with all the options. Bought it in August of 2013 at 118,000. It was a one owner, meticulous dealer maintained vehicle. Looked and felt brand new at 118K. Headphones for the DVD system were still in the plastic and never used!

    It now has 149,500 Miles. Ive always maintained it at the dealer. I had the transmission flushed/serviced this summer. Had the lower control arms/ball joints replaced under a recall. Now Ive got a heavy antifreeze leak coming from the engine block, most likely a bad water pump. From what a hear its a labor intensive job as the pump is internal inside the engine. Will most likely be a $2,000 + repair bill. I also have a clicking noise in the transfer case when I shift into R & D when the car is cold. Dealer cant figure it out. If the transfer case is bad (which Ive read is a common failure on these), it would be another $1300-$1500. Many people say the transmissions go out when the transfer case does. I don't even want to entertain that scenario!

    I guess some people get really lucky with these things, and up to now its been a great car. Im undecided on whether or not Im going to keep this thing after these issues are addressed. I may be moving on to a Toyota or a Honda. Time can only tell.

    swede,

    I have been coming up with a contingency plan or two. First is to cost share with Mazda. I will hope to only pay 1/3 of the total repair cost. Should that fail, I may look for a used powertrain from a salvage yard and swap it in. Should save a lot of dough. Dealer work is expensive.
