2010 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
Not much to say other than if you're looking for a solid crossover with 3rd row seating, buy this vehicle! We have had the Grand Touring AWD for 4 months now, and absolutely love it. This is my 4th Mazda and I would put them up against Nissan and Toyota (before their recent woes) for overall quality/value. We replaced a Ford Eddie Bauer 4x4 Explorer and the comfort/ride of the CX-9 is superior, from the roomy cabin to the smooth transmission and solid quality feel of interior accessories.
Very smooth handling/ride/transmission, comfortable seating and roomy interior, plus all of the creature comforts including heated leather seats, nav system, rear camera and blind side monitoring, etc.
Would like for the fuel economy to be a bit better, but what can you expect from an AWD vehicle of this size...
