2010 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
I bought the CX-9 GT to replace our 9 year old Odyssey. This time I bought a loaded vehicle (only 2WD though) and am glad I did. Previous reviews are spot on. Performance is good for a vehicle of this type. Interior fit and finish also very good. I looked long and hard at the Chevy Traverse (nice but too expensive), Ford Edge (no 3rd row seat) and the Subaru Tribeca (cheap looking interior and just didn't feel right). MDX was wonderful but couldn't justify the extra $8-$10k more. Sticker was $38,315 and I put $0 down and $630/mo for 60 months @ 0% interest.
Comfort and solid feel while driving. Styling - especially with the 20's.
1) Eliminate the fake aluminum interior door and cabin trim. Used GT's I drove had scratches to the coating which looked terrible. 2) The exposed second row seat tracks on the floor. Mazda could have engineered better. The clear tape that covers the tracks will age and flake. 3) More MPG!!!
