2008 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
I drove different makes of SUVs for the past 10 years and this vehicle is the best of all. Fit and finish is perfect. Seats are comfortable and roomy, interior materials are plush and instrumentations are well placed. Second row seat tracks are covered in order not to get anything pinched in there... hint, hint!! The transmission shifts smoothly and flawlessly. Acceleration is enhanced by the AWD without feeling grippy. The engine is quite and has plenty of power. The exterior looks sharp. Last but not least, the Bose system rocks!!
Third row needs A/C vents. Graphics on the navigation system is not as good as the other systems. CD changer controls are real basic.
