2009 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
I was looking to replace a 2004 MDX. The newer MDX while very impressive is mid 50s with all options....Ouch! The dash of the new MDX has way too much going on. The CX9 was a surprise for sure. For what you get this is by far the best in the larger 3rd row SUVs. Many people actually see this rig and think it is a Lexus. You don't see as many of the cx9s on the road and I cannot figure out why. We have three small children and did not want to go mini-van.
Interior finish, bluetooth, Bose, Sirius. Great looking profile of exterior. Blind spot detectors
Can't enter Navi unless in 'P'(I think this is standard these days). No cargo cover for the loaded GT with power liftgate....What's up with that Mazda?
