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


This vehicle is amazing. As a car nut who has owned just about every type of car imaginable including Audi, BMW etc. - this vehicle has exceeded my expectations in every way. The drivability and sheer practicality of the CX-9 is unmatched. I looked at every crossover and for anyone who enjoys cars - there simply is no comparison if you need the room of a 3 row CUV/SUV. I even owned the new Acura MDX and aside from the Acura's vastly superior navigation system, just about everything else on the CX-9 is better. BTW - I have not had any issues with the 20 inch wheels - the ride is smooth, taut and in no way harsh. The CX-9 simply drives like a nice European vehicle. Highly recommend it.

Best Features

Just about everything. Steering. Ride. Overall handling and performance. Styling. Blind-spot monitoring. Comfort. Roominess. Versatility of seating. Long telescope of steering wheel. Clear bluetooth sound and easy setup. Logical climate controls. Legibility of instruments.

Worst Features

The biggest issue - lack of a trip computer - has been fixed in 2009. Other items that could be improved: (a) multi-level seat heaters (b) ability for driver to have control over all windows - even if they are locked for passengers. The navigation interface is dated and not the most intuitive.
