This is perfect. Cannot live without it

This is is my favourite car at home. I hate the idea my dad got to get a Tesla. Mazda's vroom of petrol is very cool and large seven seater is perfect for long trips with lots of people on board. Show details

Love the quality and after sales service

I bought my CX9 Azami from Edwardtown Mazda. The Vehicle is so much better than my Honda that I pnly use when going shopping. The after sales service has been excellent from Mazda Australia. Issues solved within 48 hours. Still waiting for Formula Honda to fix my third row seat. Show details

Expensive repair on FAULTY transfer case

faulty transfer case acknowledged by Mazda but warranty not extended to even cover my car (purchased new) with less than 100,000km. Cost me $3500 to repair could have been worse if the fault extended into the transmission. No one at Mazda or dealerships wanted to no about it. Sure has been a huge disappointment and I will never buy another Mazda. Show details

Perfect vehicle, Amazing ride!

This SUV seems like made for our family!

It gives you the feeling of macho and delicacy at the same time and is made while keeping all the genders in mind! The red and blue colours are quite unique and gives the feeling of epoxy paint in sunlight!

All the features are just amazing and I am in love with it. Show details

Dangerous

Not one to write reviews often but I'm not happy. My cx9 has a 120K Km with perfect service history. The Transfer case literally exploded causing car to lock up. It's a known issue, search it up and Mazda refuses to acknowledge. Quoted a $5K+ repair. Not good enough for a company sitting on $284 Billion capital to be sitting and waiting for someone to die before they issue a recall.

Love it, super smooth

Love this car, spacey inside and comfortable even with all 7 seats full. Car seats fit all seats. Luxury inside a heap of USB ports and super smooth to drive. The only thing a would say is I liked the “ grab the handle sensor “ better than the button on the handle to open and lock the car. Very minor and probably just a me issue lol all round great vehicle  Show details

Until now satisfied!

I bought CX-9 car in 2018 from Brisbane. I am pretty much delighted with the performance of the car and how it treats me, whether it is a plain road or a tough road.

It has excellent cruise control and best of best is an adaptive cruise which means it applies to break if the front vehicle slows down or even speeds up when the front vehicle moving fast (within the max cruise speed limit).

Also how it projects - Speed details, Road speed limit, Directions (if we turned navigation On), and blind spots on the front screen, where you can adjust brightness and height where it displays on the front screen.

Really, until now no complain, and very much satisfied! Show details

Mazda all the way

Best car, fantastic to drive. Soon as I drove out the showroom floor I felt quality. This car is very powerful and great value For $46,990. Mazda cx9 sport is a whole lotta car for your money's worth these days. For the higher end spectrum azami ect really not interested for the price as the sports just as luxurious plus are we that lazy now we need power tailgates. Has the same engine in every model. Very impressive car I highly recommend over my Mazda 6 luxury sport. Show details

Safety failure

I bought a brand new my CX9 Azami in Feb 2018. I did not have much issues initially until I did. The Smart City Brake failed although I was within speed limits and my car crashed. My family and I feel LUCKY TO BE ALIVE. Neither the retailer nor Mazda Australia want to know anything about it. They boast about their safety features in the marketing specs, however, does not deliver what was promised. This car was a huge and EXPENSIVE MISTAKE !

I bought a New Mazda cx9 GT FWD this August 2021 and I'm enjoying the drive and its tech. But i encountered an issue on the backup camera. The guided lines are not turning when I'm turning the steering wheel. Still my other 2019 Honda Civic basic model is having this freature.

Please reply if any one have the same model or know the answer.

No issues here, lines appear for me. Could be a settings issue, just take it back to car yard and get them to fix it
