18 months later...and still think it's an excellent buy.
We're 18 months and over 25,000 miles into this Mazda CX-9, and we still think we bought the right vehicle. It is comforable, and just the right size for us. We only use the third row in a pinch, otherwise, it's has too little space and hard to get into. The drive and handling are great, and it's very comfortable for road trips. I think that the Grand Touring is the right trim. You save a few thousand dollars off the signature trim. The adaptive cruise control and adaptive LED headlights are my favorite features. Exterior styling is awesome. So far, just needing regular maintenance. We're getting about 23 mpg in mixed driving, so EPA estimates seem right. Power is sufficient with regular unleaded gas,
