2008 Mazda CX-9 SUV Touring 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I leased the car on a comparison review of the Highlander,the Pilot and the CX- 9. There are only 2 baby clips available in the 2nd seat. You can not put a baby seat in the middle (it folds down). I put my 1st baby seat on the smallest section and then could not fold down the larger section to get into the 3rd seat. (I needed to place 3 car seats in the car) In the comparison they did point out the negative about the rear passenger doors being longer and more difficult to open it tight situations. I have found that it is more difficult in most situations. The road noise is terrible. There are multiple blind spots and the drivers seat is very uncomfortable


Worst Features

Rear seats more user friendly for car seats. Road noise, drivers seat comfort. Auto lock doors when you put the car in drive.

Review

Bought this to replace our '01 Honda CRV. Researched many third row SUVS. Came down to a Yukon or the CX9. My wife liked the CX9 because the ride was so much smoother. Couldn't agree more for once! The CX9 is a great SUV, roomy and well designed interior and sleek exterior. First time Mazda buyer and will definitely consider Mazda the next time.


Best Features

Interior design, BOSE sound system, illuminated console, and on and on


Worst Features

Daytime running lights!

Review

I picked up a new top of the line 2008 Mazda CX9 Grand Touring for my wife in January of 2009.This car is amazing comparing to other SUV’s like the Ford Edge, Nissan Murano and the Lincoln MKX the CX-9 was the best choice for the money.The CX-9 is Sporty, stylish and roomy loads of cargo space, easy access to spacious third row, even for an average-sized adult, The two- passenger third-row seat is one of the roomiest you'll find. And the second row seats are very comfortable for adults. The CX-9 an attractive dash design and an adequate number of technoland an adequate number of technology and entertainment features too many to mentioned. got an excellent deal! Couldn't be happier


Best Features

Pros: Sporty and stylish has power goes off-road like a sports car. Roomy great for families of 5 that need extra room,Handles well smooth ride.


Worst Features

Con’s: Bluetooth and the home link feature not all that great. most important Could be better fuel efficiency car and is overpriced.

Review

Just bought the vehicle and immediately took it on a LONG trip. A pretty comfortable ride, with lots of room. Some very nice features, and received lots of compliments on the exterior design. Overall we are pleased. Not all is perfect in Zoom Zoom land however. With a load it takes its sweet time passing cars at freeway speeds. Husband sez something about low-end torque...or lack thereof. Mileage about as expected...maybe 22 on open road. Surprisingly not much worse in town. Having to pay extra for satellite radio installation in a vehicle of this price range is disappointing. Radar in rear bumper that detects passing vehicles, (and sometimes nearby guard rails) is a great safety feature.


Best Features

Blind spot monitoring. Back-up camera. Very smooth ride. Lots of room. A really expensive looking vehicle. Pretty fair braking. Acceptable gas mileage for a large vehicle. Great incentives on this vehicle


Worst Features

More low end muscle. LIGHTED CONTROL SURFACES! Complex wiper control, headlight control, and mirror control are all painted on, no night lighting. If you are not VERY familiar with these controls, you are almost helpless at night ...unless you like driving with the overhead light on. Come on Mazda!!
