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!
Excellent reliable car
Great luxury car for family of 7 people with all modern feature. I will be using this car for camping and long driver almost. need service every 10,000 kms. just make small rattling noise from tailgate.

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.

Don’t buy a Mazda CX-9
Bought a brand new Azami model in March 2017. In its December 2018 service at only 19,718 km the car was impounded due to the entire braking system needing to be replaced. In August 2020 at only 31,180kms the brakes started squeaking again, took the car back to Mazda in Sept, They acknowledged that the brakes were definitely squeaking, but wear on the pads was minimal and they could find no explanation for this. However I was advised that they did take photos and sent these to Mazda to investigate. The car was returned to me, and continued to s...queak, but I heard no more from Mazda. On Monday 1 March 2021 I noticed that the squeak had now become a grinding noise. I called Eagers Mazda Newstead and they booked me in for 3 March 2021. That afternoon I was advised that the brakes were metal on metal and that the breaking system and underside of the car were badly corroded. They told me that the car was too dangerous to drive (again). The car has now only done about 36 or 37,000km (I don't know the exact mileage as Mazda still has my car 10 days later). The car's brakes could have failed at any time, or the parking brake could have failed (as was known to happen with earlier Mazdas due to chronic rust problems). I believe this is a major defect, with a high potential for death or serious injury and Mazda unable (and now unprepared) to fix the damage. I have asked Mazda to replace the vehicle, and they have refused to even send out a technical expert to inspect it. In short, Mazda Australia has completely washed its hands of this problem. Don’t buy a Mazda

I will never buy a Mazda again!! 11 years later and the car is worth $0 and can not be driven
The major faults to date:auto boot closure exploded cost 8K, the passenger auto window is jam (4K+ to fix), transfer case and auto transmission gone 10.5K. Can not drive atm or worth repairing so its ready for the scrap heap!!

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 !
My Japanese Cadillac.
Just purchased my CX-9 GT AWD in December 2020. While I’m learning to love how it looks, the interior is stunning. Comfortable, great sound system and driving throughout country NSW, it is responsive, handles extremely well for such a large vehicle and has as much “tech” as I need. Since, I purchased it new, I”ll be interested in how it holds up over the coming months and years. Happy to keep you posted but so far, so good. Very happy.

An Awesome Car!
This car is a great pleasure to drive. The interior is high end and luxurious! Been an excellent car, no problems, great value. response from the 2.5 turbo engine, definitely drives like a sports car.

Worst car we have ever had
We purchased our mazda in Nov 2017. For the first 15 months the car was great after that we had to take the car in and out of our local dealership 12 times in 12 months for numerous issues, egr valve replacement, I-eloop malfunction, smart city break malfunction, driver attention alert malfunction both mirrors have been replaced from being stuck and not folding in and out, reverse camera has been replaced from not working properly, lcd screen has had multiple issues and needed replacing, the gear box when shifting from park to reverse or drive is stiff and intermittently needs to be pulled to change gears.
Terrible make or just a faulty batch but mazda Australia terrible and claimed its normal for cars to need to be presented with faults.

Excellent Family car
This is an excellent family car. If you're looking into a high end design and big space SUV, this is the car for you. The interior of this car is amazing! we love it!
I highly recommended Mazda CX-9. You can guys can get a good deal at Australian Motors Mazda - let them know about your budget.

- CX-9 TC Azami LE (2018-2021)
I use the car for both personal and work. Love the lux features and safety technology pack. I like the feel of driving this large suv. Even though the dimensions are huge, this doesnt affect my driving at all. I dont feel like driving bigger than the mesium
Suv that I was driving for many years!
One thing they should have improved-there should be an alarm when the door is left open and you are already driving!
Purchased in January 2020 at Mazda Dealers for $69,000.00.
The car was purchased brand new in July 2019. There have been numerous issues with the car including:
- rear passenger door not closing properly
- faulty middle console
- interactive display not working properly
- ieloop malfunction three times. Each time it has taken over two weeks to rectify and this remains an issue.
- electric system malfunction in the middle of turning right on a main road, resulting in the car stalling mid turn and my family being stuck in the middle of
an intersection whilst three lanes of oncoming traffic have the green...

Very disappointed with 2011 CX-9 brake and head gasket failures
We purchased a one owner second hand 2011 CX-9 top of the range Grand Touring as a family wagon in 2017, after shopping around for a good teenager sized 7-seat option in the $25,000 range. The CX-9 is nice to drive for such a big car, tows good and well appointed, so the family loves it. However in 2019 it suffered the common Brake Booster / Brake Master Cylinder failure (noting the recall notice in USA, not in Australia) around $1,800 to fix, then now in 2020 a head gasket failure around $5,000 to fix (and months long wait for parts). I do not think it is acceptable for an 8-9 year old car with only 135,000kms to have failed with parts so expensive and hard to get in Australia !!!
Very good car and looks awesome.
Bought it in March 2017. Used as a daily drive to work and interstate drives.
9.2l/100km fuel consumption.
Passenger seatbelt alarm kept going off and was fixed under warranty. The speaker cover on driver’s side was bulging, kind of half fixed now by Mazda.
Seats leather quality and design questionable. Rust proofing suspect. Steering wheel leather scratches easily. Great all round car though.
Service done as per recommendation, 6 months/10,000km.
Purchased in March 2017 at Mazda Dealers.
A great family car
Overall an excellent car, very smooth, easy to drive, great safety feature, great customer service, plenty of space, really happy with Mazda, fuel consumption is bit bad, 12.2 L/1000 KM!
