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


Mazda CX-9 replaced a Volvo XC-90 in September 2008. We have been very pleased - especially with the V6 performance (note 2008 is larger engine than 2007) and comfortable yet sporty ride (even with 19" wheels) . Nav is very good. Bose stereo is pretty good, but not as good as some other high-end factory audio systems. All weather mats from the factory sit flat on the ground and don't really catch the snow and water very well. Volvo is the king of seat design, and it is too bad that Ford didn't steal more of this technology to give to Mazda. Gas mileage is reasonable for a truck this size. Tons of room.

Best Features

Ride quality. Build quality. Quiet. Parts/accessory prices are reasonable. Sliding mid-row seats.

Worst Features

Brakes are undersized for vehicle of this size. ROTORS WILL WARP. Seats not good on long trips. Seat memory does not change outside mirrors. Backup camera is a useless toy. I prefer the beep-beep backup sensor. No 12V outlet in mid-row. Volvo-like from sensor for cruise control would be nice.
