2009 Mazda CX-9 Sport 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6A)

Review

I test drove many and this car was the clear value leader (IF you can still get the generous discounts). Safety was a high-priority and the CX-9 has every safety device/feature available on vehicles under $50,000 - except Daytime Running Lights!? Excellent handling/steering. Design and features impress everyone from teens to middle-aged. To be sure, it rides a little rough on typical streets -- you will feel all the bumps -- but has the most comfortable car seats I've ever sat in (and I don't have leather). Maybe the best thing is that it's a big car, but doesn't look or drive like one. No car is perfect, but the minor annoyances on this one are more than made up by the outstanding ones.

Best Features

Handling and maneuverability. Bluetooth operation. High visibility (both by driver and being seen by other cars). Seats and dashboard. Heated mirrors to clear fog and ice. Automatic climate control. Storage room behind 3rd row. Cruise/Radio controls on steering wheel. Orange instrumentation, for now

Worst Features

Better fuel mileage & larger gas tank. Sirius radio should be standard. Better stereo controls and speakers. More room for driver's left foot and right knee. More upfront storage areas. Doors should lock automatically when you start driving and unlock when you pull the handle. Smoother acceleration.
