2007 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I traded in my 2003 Expedition and wanted something a little smaller with better handling/ride, but still needed the 3rd row seats. Looked at the Explorer, Pilot and Acadia but the CX-9 was in a different league when I test drove it. I'm very impressed with the CX-9 and feel I made the right decision.
Ride quality, comfortable leather seats and excellent driving position, clean ergonomic control layout and gauges, quiet on highway.
