I have not owned a new vehicle in 9 years. I have been doing research for a while and really investigated the Mazda CX7 and CX9. I had been driving a Dodge Durango and loved it. My husband did not want a smaller vehicle so we drove the CX9. I really like the looks of the CX9. My only complaint is that I settled for the black interior which I know will be very hot in the summer.
I love the Bose stereo, the lumbar support in seat and really have enjoyed the seat warmer.
I would like to have fog lights. A little more room in the third row would be nice. Road noise is noticeable but not too bad.
