2007 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
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.
Stereo is loud and clear (bose), cockpit has quality materials and leather, dash lighting on the GT is terrific.
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).
