Replaced R350 - First Trip - ZOOM ZOOM!
By Daba on
Vehicle
2010 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
Review
Our CX9 Grand Touring just replaced an MB R350. Pros for the CX9 - Value for $, Handling, Power, Nav, Really Great Sound System, Handier Seats / Utility, Power Liftgate sounds like it will work, Regular Gas, Style, Interior Fit & Finish / Style. Cons - Gas Cost really isn't - CX9 is 10% less gas mileage, but uses Regular!! Seats other than driver's seat are a little less solid. Driver's seat is better than R, especially for medium height drivers. If you need something midsized and flexible and miss CX9 you are missing a great choice - we tested a lot. Most amazing feature - the car got looks from people in LA - must be the new colors and big wheels!
Favorite Features
It's the Drive!! How can Mazda make a midsize vehicle do that? Wow. The Bose Sound sounds like a custom install - incredible clarity. Makes you believe in ZOOM ZOOM after the first few minutes. Transmission downshifts by itself going downhill, like a tiptronic, or you can do it yourself.
Suggested Improvements
Front passenger seat make like driver's - minor nit. Tradeoff for 20" rims and tires is a little more road noise, so, suggest quieting to make perfect!
