2008 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
As a crossover, I am fully impressed with the CX-9 GT. Fast, handles like a sports car on turns and acceleration, yet comfortable and roomy. You can go race it on the highway or take your wife out to the opera in it... not that I do. Gas mileage isnt that great, but then again it is a high performance 3.7L engine with AWD. Not bad when you factore that into the equation. We are so impressed, we will get another one after this lease expires and I am buying a MSP3. Bravo Mazda!
Ride, speed, comfort. Cabin is excellent. Handling is top notch, almost like you are driving a sports car.
Gas mileage not so great, but good for a 3.7 litre engine and AWD. Bose stereo system not MP3 compatible, silly when the lesser model is!
