Finally Settled on the CX-9 Touring After Months of Test Drives
By anotherfan1 on
2011 Mazda CX-9 Touring 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
I switched from a 2008 Camry, a car I only liked for the gas mileage, to the CX-9 Touring.
We looked at the GMC Acadia, the Pilot, the Highlander, Volvo XC-90, the Flex and the Explorer.
XC-90 - Uncomfortable, cost too much
Flex - Comfortable but strange looking
Acadia - Didn't seem to have the quality I was looking for
Highlander - Built on a Camry chassis and this was what I was trying to get away from
Pilot - Seemed clunky and I did not like the dealer.
The CX-9 is comfortable, spacious and it drives great.
It has a very easy to manage center console, radio, etc.
What I don't like is the mileage and how it's tough to be more a la carte while building your car online.
Power liftgate is very nice.
Visibility is great.
Gas mileage and more freedom to build the car you want online and at the dealer.
