2007 Mazda CX-9 SUV Grand Touring 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

This is the best SUV that I have ever owned. The 6 speed is as smooth as a high end luxury car and the car never fails to find the perfect gear. I am thankful for the gear indicator in the gauges because sometimes you have no idea what gear you are in because the shifting is so smooth; even at high speeds and acceleration. It's quick, comfortable and fun to drive. The bluetooth is great and works well. The 20 inch wheels perform great in the mountains but the ride is bumpy in everyday driving due to the smaller side walls in these larger tires. Tight turning radius makes for easy maneuverability. The keyless entry and ignition work well and is a must have. Very easy to access 3rd row


Favorite Features

Bluetooth, Navigation, heated seats, keyless entry, 20 inch wheels, access to third row, bright xenon headlights that are adjustable, backup camera is a must!


Suggested Improvements

No trip computer for mpg and oil life calculations. The mpg should be better; I am getting only about 21 for highway driving. No equalizer on stereo. Very easy to dent if another car door opens into you.

Review

We did an extensive search and compared the Acura, MBZ, GM lines, Toyota and Honda and the CX-9 was the clear winner. We are throughly enjoying the ride and convenience it offers. After driving a traditional SUV for 10 years, the Mazda is a welcome change. Interior space is excellent, access to and use of the third seat is easy and the ride is solid and fun. It also was a better value when compared to the other makers. In short, Mazda did a great job with this car!


Favorite Features

The sliding middle seats and easy access to third row seats; smart key system; overall performance and handling of a full size CUV.


Suggested Improvements

They could use an power outlet in rear center console to hook up DVDs etc.

Review

Got an attractive offer for one of the last '07 cars so went for it. Stylish interior, nice functionality (bluetooth, bose). Would have liked mp3 capability with stereo. Still unsure about the looks from the front, but looks great from rear. Keyless entry and engine start is cool but ultimately irritating. Felt exclusive initially, but now seeing more on the roads. Overall happy with the car, and excellent value for money.


Favorite Features

Stereo is loud and clear (bose), cockpit has quality materials and leather, dash lighting on the GT is terrific.


Suggested Improvements

Lose the keyless entry - it's ultimately annoying. Back doors are way too long, making it really difficult in parking lots. Could use more power (2008 model has the 3.7 which may help). Drops from 6th to 5th to easily on freeways. Lights-on bleep even when light are on auto (very annoying).

2007 Mazda CX-9 SUV Sport 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

We leased this vehicle as a replacement for our 2005 MPV. Power and styling were the big draws for us. After 4,0000 miles, it's a fun vehicle to drive but it's starting to show some shortcomings. Two defects had to be corrected during pickup from the dealership and a rattle has developed in the dashboard. A recent snow storm revealed, unlike most FWD vehicles, it's terrible in the snow. The tires are the most likely suspect. Gas mileage is disappointing. The expert reviews and changes to the 2008 model indicate the vehicle my have been rushed into production.


Favorite Features

Full side curtain airbags, dashboard display, shiftable automatic transmission, dual exhaust, rear seat functionality and space.


Suggested Improvements

Mazda, please improve the gas mileage of your V6 engines! Better tires and quality control.
