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


If your tired of the minivan life but can't figure out how to get that sporty ride you've been longing for without giving up the room of your van then take a look at the CX-9. For sure it compromises in some aspects like overall storage but much less than most in this category. Compared to my wife's previous Grand Voyager the level of comfort, styling and performance of the CX-9 more than make up for this. The ride is sure footed meaning its not going to float down the road but its not so tight as to be uncomfortable. Gas mileage seems to live up to what Mazda reports. My wife has averaged 19 mpg with mostly in town driving. Overall, it's a great sporty value for the buck.

Best Features

Sporty styling and handling are excellent for such a large vehicle; Overall interior room is better than most in its class; Basic stereo with MP3 hookup is more than adequate; and the two tone leather seating is very supportive and appears to be of nice quality.

Worst Features

Storage is limited up front compared to that of most minivans. Handling is sportier than some might like. I recommend a lengthy test drive prior to purchasing if you prefer that floating down the road feel. I recommend getting the fog lights; front end looks lacking without them.
