    2021 CX-9 Signature 5000 mile impression & comparison with 2018 CX-9 Sig

    Thought I would share my impressions of the 2021 CX-9 Signature with my previous 2018 CX-9 Signature. The car now has 5000 miles and I bought this car to replace my 2018 CX-9 that was totaled on January 1. My 2018 was grey with the auburn interior and the 2021 is white with the brown interior...

    Mazda to reduce auto production

    I am glad I moved to replace my CX-9 quickly. It looks like Mazda is having trouble getting all the components to build vehicles and will cut production significantly in the next few months. This appears to be a common theme as I have heard many bicycle companies can't find parts to build...

    And so it ends

    And so it ends. Wife hit someone - she was not paying attention. Terrible way to start the new year. The tow guy thinks the car is totaled. I owe 10K and fear I will only get 20K from the insurance. Leaving me with not enough money to replace. Back to driving the CX-5.

    Sky-X European fuel economy numbers

    https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a2...ne-europe-mpg/ This actually looks pretty good. I have a 2.0 Mazda 3 and find it plenty good for around town and everyday driving. To improve the mileage by ~5-10 MPG would be huge. Sign me up.

    First 500 miles on my CX-9

    I thought I would give my impressions on the 2018 CX-9 from someone moving from a CX-5 and who looked hard at the CX-5 Signature. I had originally wanted a 2019 but settled on the 2018 as the dealer had a color I wanted and installed CarPlay for me and gave me a good price. The first thing I...
