2008 Mazda CX-9 Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
We bought this vehicle for my wife, she was looking for a spacious crossover to upgrade from her VW Passat for our 2 active boys. We looked at the Ford Edge, Nissan Murano, and Mazda CX-7. The Edge was just boring to drive, the Murano was our second fav pick, but too pricey and significantly smaller. We were most surprised though about the difference between the CX-7 & the 9. The fit and finish of the 9 seemed significantly better than the 7. Both are fun to drive, the 7 has serious zoom-zoom, but for a bigger vehicle, the 9 does as well. For overall look and utility, the 9 was the hands down winner for us.
Adjustable second row, functioning third row, driveability, fit & finish.
Trip computer (it does have a trip odometer, but doesn't tell you anything else), memory seats for Touring models and up, automatic head lights.
