The CX-9 is a Great Ride
By LuvmyCX9 on


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


Bought my CX-9 this week. Did extensive search looking at the Acura MDX, Toyota Highlander, Volvo XC90, Honda Odyssey, Honda Pilot, Toyota Sienna. Reasons I picked the CX-9: 1) Good access to third row. Second row seats can slide forward, so you can access the third row without having to move a car seat. 2) Comparable to 2008 Accura MDX in features but costs a lot less, MDX more difficult to get to the third row and dash is very cluttered with different knobs. 3) Comparable to the 2008 Highlander but a better ride. Highlander still has a trucky feel. 4) Decided against the minivans because the new cross-over SUVs offer comparable features and space, without the minivan ride.

Best Features

Navigation, Bluetooth, stereo, engine performance and pickup (probably benefited a little from the bigger engine in the 2008), quiet inside (even with the 20s), very plush and comfortable interior and exterior.

Worst Features

Child locks. Still trying to figure out the navigation, but I'm sure I'll learn, Would be nice if seat memory settings also adjusted left and right side mirrors. Comparable gas mileage with other SUVs and minivans, but would like to see improvement.
