2008 Mazda CX-9 Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
Ventured back to Mazda after reading all the reviews on SUV/CV market and love the CX-9. Purchased Touring AWD on 1/11/08, and have about 5500 miles on it. Smoothest and quietest ride ever, great stereo, a real joy. Makes my wife's Camry XLE seem awfully loud and rough riding in comparison. Only drawbacks... avg about 16-17 mpg in town, and 18-20 on highway. With a 20 gal tank range is nothing more than 350 miles. Only needs reg gas though so some savings here. But no trip computer. Overall, I would buy again... a real joy to drive. Not a single issue in the 4 months and 5k miles, just an oil change. Enjoy the drive.
Smooth and quiet ride, Bose stereo, and outstanding fit and finish. Sharp styling. Roomy interior and decent 3rd row seating.
Trip computer needed. Outdoor temp reading is not a default, you have to hit the button each time you start the car. Interior could use a bit more storage areas.
