2008 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
I test drive the Saturn Outlook, the new 2008 Highlander, Honda Pilot and the 2007 Acura MDX. The CX-9 was more fun to drive than all of them and still gave me a real third row seat. I took my 22 year old son with me and we both tried getting in and out of the back seats in all of them and the Mazda was the easiest. I found this the ideal car for taking my road bike to the club starting point and hauling 7 family members to dinner and the most fun to drive of all the cars. Economy seems the same as my 1997 Camry V6 so far on the first two tanks.
Handling, third row seat, easy folding seats, bluetooth, mp3 connector. In floor storage in back rear.
Would have liked a radio that displayed song information, and a pause control on CD playing.
