New Toy...
« on: February 25, 2017, 05:21:45 AM »
So signed on the line today for one of these for the wife...

https://www.mazda.com.au/cars/mazda-cx-9/

It was time to move on the Aurion, been a great car but has started to present some niggly problems and figured we were due a new one.

Ended up with the GT model in the machine grey metallic, with all the bells and whistles including a 7 year warranty.

Pick it up Saturday, pics to follow.

I like the CX-9 - we were considering one before we bought our Durango. Really sharp cars.

That nose is kind of odd looking, but I kinda like it.

Discovered that it will read text messages out when you are driving.

Much fun sending the wife texts of "penis" and "tits" for the car to read out to her.

Yes, I am a grown adult, and yes this is still hilarious to me :lol:

I like that the license plate spells out "RUSTIE".  Hopefully the misspelling keeps it from becoming a reality LOL

Bleh, Went in for its first service last week.

Been putting too many kms on this thing hahah

Such a nice thing to drive though, smooth, quiet, quick (for a 2.5l I4 Turbo) and excellent on fuel (averaging 28mpg)

Only niggle is that the GPS has some dumb settings you can not seem to change or turn off (google "mazda town entry point GPS" for a laugh)

I hate built-in GPS in cars. We all have smart phones. Car GPS is pointless IMO.

Other than the bigger, more readable screen...

Built-in GPS is a nice convenience but definitely not worth the extra money and having to worry about updating the maps over time.

Alright, old man.

I'm late but congrats on the buy!  I love the plate.
Why do the loudest stereos belong to those with the worst taste in music?

Had this shit for a year now... Still great haha

Some dickhead keyed it about 6 weeks after getting it so it had to cop some new paint on the drivers side

Otherwise been good

Now to convince her its time for me to upgrade haha
