If Lexus made a 3-row Cross-Over....

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


...it would be this vehicle. Bought it used but it only had 74 miles on it!! Great Deal!! Traded in my 2000 Ford Explorer w/ a V-8. What a world of difference. This CUV is so much smoother, refined and quiet. Love the handling and power. Took a long distance trip (1000 miles round trip) and it was a perfect combination for passenger and cargo space. Three rows came in handy, plenty of room for the kids. Minor quibbles: CX-9s w/ navigation require separate i-pod module, no automatic locks when rolling, no rear back-up sensors (Explorer had em), no load leveling system, seat cushion slightly short for taller drivers. Other than that, having a tough time keeping it from my wife.

Best Features

Ride, handling, power and all around performance. Exterior styling is nice (shape similar to Porsche Cayenne). Comfortable and roomy. Rear seats move fore and aft. Third row roomy enough for me at 6'0".

Worst Features

Auto locks, longer seat cushions, another aux input for i-pod, rear back up sensors, load leveling system.
