almost a great ride
By D on
2008 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
Excellent drivetrain, fun in the snow (with winter tires), fun on pavement. This car does have Zoom Zoom, especially for a 4500 pound wagon. Everything about the car is good, except for the coolant leak that has presented odor in the car (while in traffic especially) with no visible signs elsewhere. The regional service mgr. refuses to step up and acknowledge / fix the car, with empty statements of 'protocol', Mazda almost has a winner with its flagship automobile. I really like driving the car, just the annoyance is enough to steer towards another make next time.
Ergonomics, dash layout / adjust ability (over 6 ft tall) and lots of room. this car looks and feels great to drive
Customer service, not empty rhetoric. Auto locking doors would be nice, and improved fuel economy. Where's the turbo- hybrid diesel option?
