Probably not. Here's an update. Stick with stock and check tire pressure each month.
Just did the same! CX-9 GTAWD/MRB/RLG) for her!
Mazda says fuel saving improvements were a outcome of work done on a modelís AWD differential rigging carryout, engine optimisation for improved explosion control (during deceleration as well as at resting as well as reduction in delivery attrition.
Depending upon various, new 18 as well as 20 in. amalgamate wheels will set a 2011 Mazda CX-9 detached. The brand new alloys are lighter than prior to as well as come wrapped in tyres that suggest improved rolling insurgency (better fuel saving.

MY 2010 CX9 GT FWD after 2 weeks is ONLY GETTING 13.3 according to its computer, how accurate are these; my wife is freaking out; her BMW 530 got at least 16 in the city...these are not even close to the posted sticker values; wonder if anyone ever sued a car company over missing the mark; DO NOT LAUGH, Mazda got sued and lost years ago when the MPH on the RX8 did not come closeto what was advertised; my neighbor was in on the class action suit,; the service writer says some get better as the car breaks in, some get worse? dogdoc

Short drives give you 13mpg.
That is perfectly normal if you know how EPA do the tests.
My wife's Prius gets 33mpg all the time on school routes, which is about 2 miles away with several stop signs and lights.
Take the CX9 on a long trip, you will get 22 mpg AT LEAST!

I have had my Mazda CX9 AWD for more than two years now. I haven't reset the onboard computer for about 75-80K km. According to the computer, my average is 13.2l/100 km (21.4 MPG).

Engines take some time to break in. Don't be suprised that it may take up to 10K miles before peak mpg is achieved. Further, actual mileage is affected by length of trip, weather, engine temp, amount of alcohol in the gas, et al.
Further, if you have complaints - point them at the EPA. Mazda did not come up with the numbers, the EPA did.

This is not true. I have a brand new cx9 2011 sport and MPG is terrible. I'm finishing a chart right now (I will post in minutes new info) but I'm really dissapointed with the MPG advertised and real results.

On City with no traffic at all (at 02:00am) I made 17.5MPG (driving 23km= 14.3 miles)
Today morning with heavy heavy heavy traffic I made 8.9 MPG!!! (26.4 L/100Km - 3.78 Km/L). This last values are horrible numbers.
In the next weeks I will have a highway driving (310 miles) so I will check the MPG consumption in highway.
Some weird stuff I see on the new CX9 2011 is I can go at 40miles x hour and the gearbox is in 6th gear. I read in the past 6th gear is only at highway but seems the new cx9 have a new programming (stupid) because MPG is horrible.

Give it some time to break in. Most engines don't reach peak MPG until about 10K miles.
Also, it's cold, you were sitting in traffic, et al - you can't expect to great MPG. To give you an idea, my VW Passat (rated at 25 city) was returning today about 18 MPG due to heavy traffic.
