2010 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
We bought this vehicle to replace a 10 year old Ford Expedition. We test drove a Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot, and Chevy Traverse. The Mazda CX-9 wasn't even on my radar screen but my husband suggested we take a look. It has the look and feel of a luxury vehicle.We were very impressed with the smooth ride, handling, and spaciousness. The inside is much more roomy than the outside would lead you to believe. We purchased the Grand Touring model with all the bells and whistles and still came in well under $40,000.Getting the same features on the Chevy Traverse would have cost us almost another $5,000. Thus far we have been very happy with this purchase.
Blind spot monitoring system is very helpful; the memory seats can be programmed for three different drivers
Wish the gas mileage was better but we knew what we were getting when we decided to buy. Would also be helpful if the side mirrors automatically adjusted with the memory seats.
