2010 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
Well this is my first SUV. I have driven full sized Taho's and what nots and they are comfortable but the gas mileage always kept me away. This CX9 is very snazzy. It feels fancier than you would expect. There is lots of room and it is comfortable. Plenty of power and a lot of cool gadgets. Im very pleased with it. Its fun to drive and you don't see many on the road. The bad things include: Of course the gas mileage we average 17.5 but have gotten as low as 15.5 which doesn't sound that bad till you need to fill up again after 300mi. The nav is beautiful but kinda stinks. You cant make adjustments on the fly we usually just use the iphone. The heated seats you can barely feel but we still love it
Fun to drive, Feels fancy, lots of room and the blind spot indicator is helpful ride is not bad despite what people say and there is plenty of room in the 3rd row. We have hauled bikes, wood you name it without problem. Haven't tried the 3rd row but it could be tight to get into to if you're big
improve the gas mileage a smidgen, Make the Nav system live from satalite not from a disc and make the bluetooth phone thing a little less annoying. That's it overall a great catch and you wont be disappointed. Ours listed 39k we got it for 34 and some change. Fully loaded minus AWD
