2008 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
We have a 2004 Mazda 6s (same platform) and though the CX-9 is larger, it still feels like you're driving a sports sedan. Traded in a Mazda Tribute for the CX-9 to gain some more space. The CX-9 is a very quiet ride and excellent for getting our toddler in and out of the back seat. This vehicle is clearly meeting our needs as a young family and we plan to keep this vehicle for a long time. During our comparison shopping, we strongly felt like there was a huge bang for the buck with Mazda. We've had nothing but positive experiences driving all of our Mazdas, especially this vehicle.
