2009 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
Best 3-row SUV out there. Drove Mercedes, Lexus, Cadillac, Audi and Volvo, none compared on interior quality and exterior style to the CX- 9. Top that off with a price which was minimally $10K less than anything else, and you have a real winner. GT package does shift the ride quality to the firm side, but the handling achieved more than compensates. Car has every bell and whistle found on the "high priced badges" with better styling interior and exterior than any of them. Dealership experience has been excellent.
Technology package, bluetooth, navigation, ipod capability and the incredible blind spot warning system.
Front passenger seat needs height adjustment, several of my taller passengers consistently hit their heads on entering the car.
