2007 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
After driving every car in this segment and comparing prices, the CX9 GT fully loaded with NAV and DVD is the best deal out there. There are other very nice 7 seaters out there, but this is the best overall package because of the interior design.
Access to third row (adults have no problems fitting in). Luxurious interior finishes (in the GT level). Rear view camera.
Mileage (although 18/24 is pretty good; I just can't believe that in 2007 they can't figure out how to improve it more).
