2009 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
The CX-9 is good looking and fairly responsive for a heavy vehicle. But, the engine developed a ticking noise at 12k miles. NOT what I would expect from a $40k car. Been in twice to fix, but has returned twice. Dealer service is OK, not on par with Acura, BMW, Lexus.
Driving position, most controls.
Brakes could be stronger, a few rattles, engine ticking.
