2008 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
My wife and I traded in an 03 Acura MDX and test drove the 08 MDX, Lexus RX 350, and the Infiniti FX 35 and had seen the Mazda CX 9 at the Houston auto show and decided to stop in to take a quick look at it. We were immediately sold on it after taking it for a test drive. It has all the bells and whistles that the other ones have for about 6k or 7k less at least. Had it for several months now and taken it on one trip and no complaints at all. Very fun to drive, very fast, and plenty of interior room. Do not go buy any midsize or crossover without going to look at the CX 9.
20" wheels, engine, bluetooth, I pod connector, automatic liftgate, bluelight gauges.
It needs a trip computer. I assume Mazda will fix this problem since everyone is complaining.
