#3612 of 3655 Has anyone seen a 2013 Cx-9 in a dealership?
Dec 07, 2012 (10:15 am)
I received an email from Mazda corporate yesterday with details of a lease deal for a 2013 CX-9 Grand Touring. I have called 3 dealerships in the Westchester, NY lower Connecticut area and none of them have them in. Has anyone seen a 2013 model at a dealership or been told that dealers have them? Has anyone seen one in the NY or Philadelphia area? Mazda Corporate could give me no leads.

Our local dealer in Montgomery County, PA, said the 2013's were on a ship in the middle of the ocean and should be at the dealer around the last week in December. They are heavily discounting the 2012's now.

Do you know what the incentives on the 2012s are? I cannot seem to find them since November's expired.
#3615 of 3655 Which option better ? 2010 or 2012???
Dec 21, 2012 (3:43 pm)
I am in the process of buying a cx-9 and have one at a dealer that is a 2010 AWD Touring white/charcoal with Bose/power lift gate/ rear camera with 23k miles going for $24,700 before tax and registration. In addition, I am negotiating with another dealer for a new 2012 silver/black leather AWD touring with Bose/lift gate and backup camera( same specs as the used) for $28,800 also before tax. I am hoping to bring the 2012 price down to at least 28k. Any thought as to whether the newer more expensive one is the better option long term regarding value and resale?? Or just go with the used one which is in great shape? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Hoping to make a decision by Monday dec24th.

If the price difference ends up being only $4k, then I'd take the new 2012 over the 2010. The new car warranty, fresh tires and higher resale value easily offset the $4k differential.
#3617 of 3655 Burning plastics smell of new CX-9
Dec 21, 2012 (9:56 pm)
I am trying to buy a CX-9 as well.
Today, when I tested drive the car (GT) on a uphill road, I smell something like burning plastics. I stopped the car and find the smell came from the front hood . I repeated the uphill test for another two times. I did not smell anything during the last test. The salesperson told me the smell came from some spray on the engine, which protects the engine. It will go away after I put hundred miles on it. Did anyone notice such smell when driving a new CX-9.
BTW, which trim offer more comfort driving, touring or grand touring? Is the only real difference between touring and grand touring is wheel size?
Will update my purchase price for 2012 model.

Yes, it is fairly common for a new car to have that smell. My CX-9 had it and the smell went away in a week or so.

#3620 of 3655 2013 CX-9 AWD Touring
Dec 25, 2012 (3:35 am)
Just purchase a 2013 Mazda CX-9 Touring AWD with roof rails, all weather mats for $32,491+tax & license. I narrow my choices down between the CX-9 AWD Touring or a Highlander AWD SE, decided to go with the CX-9 because of several of reasons, the outside/inside of the CX-9 are a lot more high quality & luxurious than the Highlander SE, the ride feels much quieter and smoother for me than the Highlander. I'm happy so far I went with the CX-9, I be back with a update after 3k.
MSRP Price is $34,865
The price I paid is with a $500 cash rebate from dealer.
Also, I'm in the Seattle area. Hope this is helpful!
