2008 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
I purchased a new 2008 Mazda CX9 for my wife in Feb 2009. We were impressed by the look and ride of the car. We were blown away by the fuel economy of our car. We were expecting less than 20 miles per gallon. We are getting 22 to 23 miles per gallon. Our only sore spots with the car are the hood latch that broke very easily and the third row seat belt hooks that feld off while driving around town. Due to the great car's ride and comfort, those flaw are very minor in comparison. We will recommend and have recommend buying the CX9 to our friends and family. The power will blow you away.
My favorite features are the comfortable ride, power of the engine, the blind spot monitoring device and the head and leg room.
I suggest a head rest that moves forward and backward not just up and down. I suggest stronger hood latch and third row seat belt hooks.
