#3460 of 3655 Exhaust or burning smell during test drive
Feb 08, 2012 (10:31 am)
I recently test drove a 2012 CX9 GT, with the car having only 5 miles on it. During the first 10 minutes of the test drive a awful burning smell came through the vents. When I put the vent control on recycle the smell went away but when I put it back on fresh air, the smell came back.
The sales rep said that it was the undercoating spray and that after 20-30 miles it will go away and that this happens to all Mazda cars. Is this true and has anyone else had this smell during their test drive, or even even after buying their car ?

I havent experienced that. We have a 2010 CX7, a 2011 Mazda 3 and now, 2012 Cx9...You should test drive a different vehicle and see if you experience the same thing

I did. back when I bought my 08 Mazda3. It was noticeable but not too bad, and it went away in two days. We are buying a factory-ordered CX-9, which will be hopefully delivered in a couple of months, and I will keep an eye (a nose) on it though.

Thanks lwb and nsbio. I will test drive another Mazda model to see if the smell is there.

When I bought my 09 GT, it had the same smell but it burned off after about a week.

This is my first time to post but a long time reader of townhall talk specifically with Mazda forums. I just wanted to share my price paid on a new CX-9. I got my new FWD CX-9 Grand Touring with RSES, nav, power liftgate, tow prep for 34,000 plus TT&L from Bankston Ford/Mazda in Fort Worth, TX. Overall, it was a pleasant experience.

Wow! That's a great deal for a 2012. Did you get the 0% financing at that price?

No. I took financing with my credit union. I was also surprised when I called them because this option is very limited here in DFW and I felt I wont get this below invoice (36,526 I believe). They gave it to me 34,429 at first but I was able to talk them to 34,000 with free tint. Not bad at all. Loving the car!!!
#3468 of 3655 2011 AWD Grand Touring NAV/moonroof - Is this a good deal?
Mar 04, 2012 (2:13 pm)
I'm looking to buy a CX-9 sometime, I'm in no hurry. I've been emailing dealers around my area (midwest). I have an offer from a dealer for a 2011 CX-9 AWD Grand Touring with moonroof/NAV/powerlift gate. MSRP is $39,650, the dealer is offering it for $32,300, no 0%. Do you think this is a good deal? Thanks in advance!

If you don't need the financing, I'd offer $1200 less. Otherwise it's a decent deal for a year old car that's been sitting unsold. Is it Black/black? Most leftovers are LOL.
