Looking for advice - What is the long term life on a Mazda? How do they fair over 40,000 miles?


Asked by Apr 21, 2013 at 06:37 PM about the 2011 Mazda CX-9 Touring AWD

Question type: General

3 Answers


Consumer Reports gives the 2011 CX-9 positive ratings in all categories, including Engine and Drive Train and calls it a "good bet" as a used SUV. It's built in Japan, BUT uses the same 3.7L V6 used in some Ford models (From Wikipedia: The CX-9 is built on the Ford CD3 Platform that is shared with the Ford Edge, and it uses the same 3.7 L V6 engine used in the Ford lineup). It should function fine over 40k miles, though my personal preference and comfort level is with a Mazda built in Japan with a Mazda engine having NOTHING to do with a Ford...as in my Mazda MX-5 Miata.


Does this answer your question @ GLSH28 ???

I am driving my Mx-6 daily over 60 miles. it has 260k on it and runs like a dream. I used to autocross it so its not like i am a grandma behind the wheel. other than loosing a few sway-bar linkages and basic maintenance it still gets over 30 mpg. i own 6 Mazda's now. all are pretty much bulletproof.
