LOVE MY SUV, GET A MAZDA!!
2008 Mazda CX-9 Touring
I love my Mazda cx-9. This is my first full sized SUV. I bought this specific SUV because of the adjustable seats. Not only do the seats move back and forth, but up and down, which helps tremendously given the fact that I am on the shorter side. I also love the pickup my Mazda cx-9 has. As with all Mazdas, you never have to worry about whether or not you will be able to pick up speed quickly enough to merge or pass. The trim/ style I have for my cx-9 included leather, heated seats. This is my first car to have heated seats, and even though I live in the south, they come in handy on the occasional winter day. I do not like the hands free system of this particular model though. I am sure it is only because it is a 2009 though. After owning this SUV for 2 years, I have still yet to figure out how to connect my phone to the built in hands free system. Also occasionally I will accidentally hit 'connect' to the hands free and what results is a screaming voice that will not stop yelling until I repeatedly scream cancel at it. Another thing I like about this SUV is the size of the trunk/ cargo space. The third row seating can lay completely flat (as well as the second row) so if you are like me, and haul around junk all the time, you always have enough room to do so. this also makes vacations or long road trips more comfortable.
