2007 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)
We love our new CX-9. Handles well, has "Zoom-Zoom" and we can go to dinner with Grandma, Grandpa, Mom, Dad, AND baby all in the same car. I had to drop a friend off at the local Audi dealer to pick up his car from the repair shop, and all the salesmen in the lot came over to drool on my CX-9. They told me they thought it looked better than the Audi Q7 they were selling (I'll have to agree!). Not to mention it cost about $12,000 less for the same options. We love it - no complaints so far. Mazda hit a home run on this one.
Great looks, instruments are intuitive and easy to use, the stereo ROCKS, it has great get-up-and-go. Third row is easy to fold down and stow.
The CD player doesn't play MP3 CDs (you have to use the auxilliary jack hooked up to your portable MP3 player). The rear passenger doors are huge. I would also like a plastic cover for the cargo area to protect the cloth when the seats are folded down.
