2012 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


Just purchased a new 2012 CX-9 and traded in the 2008 model.
Prior to the purchase I thoroughly researched all of the alternatives, just as I had done in 2008 and still came back to the Mazda.
They fixed all of the little things that I had complaints with on the 2008 model (i.e. no trip computer, doors failed to lock automatically when in drive, and single entry into the center armrest).
The Highlander was a close 2nd, but the extra space the CX-9 provides, along with the sporty drive made the choice clear.
I just hope that the new one will be as reliable as the one traded (knock on wood).

Best Features

Spirited handling Deceiving amount of cargo room Dual entry into the padded center console Sound system Rear entertainment system

Worst Features

Gas mileage is on par with the category, but could always be better. Suggest making the roof rack stardard and adding some chrome to it. Navigation system needs updated.
