Excellent Bang For The Buck!

2009 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
Just bought and so far, am VERY impressed with my CX-9. It replaced a 3 year old Volvo XC-90. Feels solid, drives great, looks great and I actually prefer it over the Volvo. Plenty of room inside to buy just about anything with the seats down. Rear seat heat and a/c is actually effective. Keyless everything is great. For the price, it can't be beat. I looked at much more expensive vehicles including Audi, Mercedes and Lexus and aside for the interior wood trim, softer leather and a little extra glitz in these high end crossovers, the Mazda is a winner and represents incredible value. It really has everything you'd ever want.
Size (nice and big), styling, generous optional equipment, excellent stereo, beautiful rims, handling, bluetooth, rock solid feel, blind spot side view mirror system.
Steering wheel is a little thin and stitching a bit bumpy although I can live with it.
