2009 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
Let me start by saying we never expected to like this vehicle so much. It was more of a "let's take a look so we can eliminate one more option". But when you get behind the wheel and give this SUV a good look trust me if you buy another SUV I will be shocked. It is as close to perfect as you will find. It is simply THE best kept secret in the mid-size SUV/Crossover market. Great size not to big not too small. Usable third row with as much legroom as many full size SUV. Great build quality. Smart engineering and logical design/layout. Drives as much like a sports car as possible in an SUV. All the safety features. Unbelievable upscale features on the Grand Touring for the money.
Smart Key, Dockable DVD Gameboy system (SMART!), Good bluetooth system, Seats very comfortable, drives like an oversize RX-8!
VERY MINOR! Rear hatch should allow the glass to open. Could you a few more storage locations inside the vehicle.
