team scooter Posted February 23, 2020 Share #1 Posted February 23, 2020 We originally planned on getting a CX 5. Then, when the new CX 30 came out, we argued back and forth between that. But after our trip to Upper Michigan last week, and towing the snowmo trailer with my noisy 16 year old truck, we decided the CX 9 with the extra towing capacity would be the way to go. So much so, after months of himing and hawing we finally pulled the trigger and bought one. The current dealer incentives didn't hurt either. Sure we still have new car smell/love lust. But so far it has exceeded all of our expectations. Though with the extra size, I needed to move stuff around and even take some cabinets off the wall in my garage. Hopefully the larger size wont be an issue for my wife in the parking lots. And if she doesn't stop changing all the personal settings for all the fancy gadgets and driving nannies I'm going to flip. With the lane departure, and auto braking, it has its radar built into that over sized front emblem, with cameras on all four sides, it nearly has the ability to drive itself. But being that Mazda's philosophy is "Because Driving Matters" alarms will chime if you take your hands off the steering wheel for more then a few seconds. And yesterday I discovered the Sport Mode button. It changes how it shifts for more spirited driving, and Holly Mother Of Blessed Turbo Acceleration! is it fun to drive. Though the fuel mileage dropped like a rock. While its true, over the last decade my wife and I have become Mazda fanatics, I still would suggest if you're in the market, test driving any of their CUVs . Especially if you haven't test driven a new Mazda in the last year or so. Much has changed. 2 2 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
