2008 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


I have been looking for the perfect large SUV to replace our 04 Chevy Venture that was totaled about three weeks ago, and found it in the CX-9. At first look it is sexy but seemingly too small for my family of 6. But I took one for a test drive to my wife, and we fell in love. It was a base sport model and I was still impressed. The interior design is a 10+, handling is great. I pushed the engine out to about 5000 or 6000 rpm before shifting in manual mode and the tranny was still silky smooth. I had to check the readout to be sure that I even shifted gears. All of my kids fit surprisingly well with two boosters and one car seat.

Best Features

Space, interior, exterior design, the tranny, power and features.

Worst Features

Twenty-two inch chrome wheels would have put this thing the class it deserves. Open up the front bumper a little more to complete the aggressive look. Four headrest monitors instead of the overhead style. A little more snap to the engine off the line, and fog lights standard.
