    Hi! I'm Steve from NJ.
    Back in 2008 I saw a Mazda CX-9
    Wow! In 2008 it was so fresh. So different!
    I wanted one.
    It took 'til 2010 but I got one of my own.
    Black exterior / Black interior
    Grand Touring
    ......then in July of 2015 somebody ran a stop sign.....slammed into the side of my terrific car.
    Totaled it!
    *
    I replaced it with a "2016" Mazda CX-5...got it in August of 2015 but Mazda called it a 2016 vehicle.This one is also a Grand Touring.....also black/black
    Yet in the 22 months I've had it, it has had 3 recalls!
    Now the clip on the cd holder compartment (between the driver's seat and the other seat) has broken. I have packing tape holding that lid thingee in place until I bring it to the Mazda dealership next Tues. morning.
    I'm not so excited to own a Mazda any more.

    Anyone have a similar story? Or just want to respond to something I said?

    Never had an interest in a Mazda-now I'm glad. That said, I rented a CX-5 once and it was nice, but I wasn't "Wowed".

    Most auto manufacturers release the following year's models to the market sometime between August and November of every year.

    Every new car that I have bought for the past 15 years has had MULTIPLE recalls.

    I'm surprised to read that.
    I guess I shouldn't be so hard on Mazda.
    I had the CX-9 for 5 years and I only remember one recall.
    A couple of months after I had the CX-5 another recall came out on the CX-9 but it obviously did not affect me.

    SOME day :rolleyes:
    I'd like to drive an Infiniti crossover vehicle.
    ....you know....Infiniti's version of the CX-9....or even their version of the CX-5.

    Coincidentally, a recall for my previous car :the Mazda CX-9 just arrived in the mail today.
    It went directly to junk mail recycling since I don't own one anymore.

    The inverse scenario would be a lot worse, Chevrolet is still recovering from covering up all of their engineering problems rather than recalling and fixing problems.
