Believe what you will. But.....
The Mazda CX-9 is a full-size crossover SUV manufactured by Mazda at the Ujina 1 plant in Hiroshima Prefecture, Japan.
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. Although outwardly similar, the CX-9 and Mazda CX-7 do not share platforms. The CX-9 has either a front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive configuration.
Thanks for the fond farewell folks. I got an opportunity to download the pictures of my 2012 Ford Edge AWD Limited form the CarMax website. Here's what my new baby looks like!
My family absolutely loves this car. Hopefully it will have more longevity than my MO did. Only time will tell.
The only thing it's missing is the roof rack and cross bars. there is a low profile aftermarket solution that I'll add in the near future that won't interfere with the panoramic sunroof. Until then, nothing up there but glass
The engine compartment is crammed as usual. Maybe I'll add a CAI to clean things up a bit. Lots of clutter on the intake side. At least the K&N sticker (put on later) makes things look a bit better.
Well...after quite a few years, a couple thousand posts, and a few How-To's later, it's time to say good bye.
Plus...there's more. I talked with a couple Nissan technician friends about their new line of cars and what problems they have. Pretty much every new vehicle released; Rogue, Pathfinder, Juke, Murano, etc all have problems with their new transmissions or power train in one form or another.
So it's bye bye with Nissan for me until further notice. I like the CVT but there are too many problems and it seems like Nissan is not desiging quality into their vehicles any longer.
