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


We bought this car to replace a Honda Accord which we were sorry to see go but needed AWD. To cut a long story short we tried a number of cars we tried a number of 'smaller' crossovers including a CX-7, and then my wife sat in a CX-9 they had on the lot. 1 hour later we owned it. It was just head and shoulders over anything else we had looked at in terms of quality, performance and out and out 'coolness'. Interior is stunning, well thought out and comfortable. Leg room is generous as is room for cargo. Car is easy to drive and feels a lot smaller than it really is. While it won't break any records on the 1/4 mile it is plenty powerful enough for most situations.

Favorite Features

Nav system, fit and finish and general comfort (my family is all over 6 ft and there plenty of space for knees in the second row). I would STRONGLY recommend getting the backing camera. The rear window is high and there is a big blind spot.

Suggested Improvements

Fuel useage is a bit of a shock, but one must remember a) the weight of the car is around 2 tons and b) the engine size. Complexity of some controls, especially those controlled by center touch screen needs some serious time in the manual.
