2010 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
Had to do my research and I'm glad I did! The CX-9 is by far the best value for your $. Bought the GT w/Bose/Moonroof & Power Liftgate pkg. At first i thought i didn't need a power liftgate. Boy was i wrong. It's a must especially with a baby. I also own a Lexus ES300 and i didn't think i would find a more comfortable ride..until now. The CX-9 is all i had hoped for & more. Personally, the CX-9 destroyed the Highlander(3rd row impostor),Pilot, Murano. Skeptics out there looking for a roomy, styling, SUV check out the Mazda CX-9. You'll see and feel the difference. Lastly-Mazda is not owned by Ford. Fords stake in Mazda is 13% & every CX-9 comes from Japan.
Too many to name but i love the keyless entry/start, Bose system, power liftgate, back up camera, lots of leg and headroom w/roomier 3rd row seating than competitors and lots of cargo room when 3rd row is down. nice leather, 20 inch wheels. Sporty and classy look.
Better MPG needed. The FWD is a little better on gas but still needs to improve. Also be sure to ask about what octane other SUV's need if you're shopping around. Many other SUV's need Super Unleaded whereas the CX-9 only needs regular Unleaded. Huge yearly fuel $avings! Check it out!
