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

Review

Purchased as 3rd car to go with a Porsche 911. I've always driven nothing but European sports cars, but am VERY impressed with this car. Steering is excellent for any vehicle. Handling is good for a car this big, but Mazda really needs to address the torque steer under hard acceleration in FWD models. It isn't fast, but quick enough for what it is. The interior is tasteful and well done. A few cheap plastic bits, but what do you expect at this price? This car looks and performs like a $45K car, and can be had nicely optioned for $35K. A steal at this price, it drives as well as some competitors costing $20K more. Perfect as kid carrier or a sporty SUV- - can do both well.

Favorite Features

Bluetooth, handling, outward appearance, 3rd row

Suggested Improvements

Xenon headlights on Touring model, Sirius needs better display to see song titles, needs a touch more room for your left foot in the footwell, too much torque steer under hard acceleration
