    Mazda CX9

    I believe there are more and more CX9s on the road than before. Although still a rather rare sight, I do see a few more than usual.

    Thanks, the thinking, am looking also at the Mazda CX9 - very good drive. It's Tubro petrol - so FC will be higher compared to a CRDi anytime. Also CRDi servicing is quite low in general. Very good turbo diesel engine.

    It's 170k km - changed bunch of stuff so it super quiet and was C&C serviced, recently being taken care of by Stamford at the East Coast Caltex, very good guys there and car is tuned...also I did a fresh coat of paint about 7 months back... so it's good.

    Updates on my 180K mileage KIA Sorento CRDi 2.2L Turbo Diesel. 1. Engine - just got the mounting changed - it is very quiet - like new. 2. Water pump - changed 3. Aircon Compressor - Changed - its so cold right now I set it to 24-25C 4. Shock Absorbers - Changed - so am rolling over humps like a happy bambi 5. Tyres - changed - to some awesome performance tyres 6. Body Paint - respray due to minor dints... so looks like a shinning armour. 7. Filters - all changed - so its purring.... I think I am prepared to drive it to the end unless someone is looking for a well loved 410NM torque cool running ride. Ping me! Thanks for reading guys!

    Fortuner does not come close. KIA Sorento, Outlander,...etc. are even better. Fortuner is a truck disguised as a SUV.

    CX9 - full tank of 98 octane, how much will it be? What is max distance for the car? My 2.2 CRDi Sorento has good torque 421NM so its quite good. Servicing also very low cost and hardly change too many parts. Going back to petrol.. need to mentally prepare myself for higher fuel cost. :-)

    Am thinking about it. It's a effortless power for such a heavy car, very quiet and luxurious. Shane
