2007 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
I all most bought a GMC Acadia. The big difference from this crossover is the fit and finish and the bang for the buck. I noticed the attention to details like the leather padded doors to the LED backlighting on the doors. This list goes on. I also look at the Audi Q7 at $55k and for $20k less the Mazda is in the same class as the Audi. Why pay $20k grand more for the Audi? From the back and side they look very similar.
I love the Navi, Sirius Radio, led taillights, HID lights. instrument panel. Credit card style key. I like the fact that instead of pushing a button to start the car the Mazda has the ignition in the same place I have been starting my cars for over 25 years.
More storage for small stuff. I would like to see pockets in the back of the front seats.
