I received the vehicle from Mazda from Drive Shop. All opinions are 100% mine.
It’s hard to believe how much time has flown by. It seemed like yesterday when we were going shopping for our son before he turned 1-year-old. Over the years, we have let our kids spend the night with their papa and great-grandmother while we shop. Last year, we took our oldest two kids while my youngest stayed with her cousins at her papa’s house. This year, my two oldest kids had to work all Black Friday weekend so that meant my little one tagged along. One of the main reasons she wanted to go was her love for the 2018 Mazda CX9. Sure, many will think that she wanted to see if we bought her anything, but she loves this vehicle. The first thing she done when it arrived was sit in the backseat and start taking selfies. Below are some of the favorite things we love about it.
One thing that has impressed me about the Mazda brand is their color selection. When Drive Shop arrived with the 2018 Mazda CX9, the first thing I noticed was the color. The color wasn’t the normal red, but it was very exotic to me and my family. When we came back to the vehicle after shopping at the Mall of Georgia, this couple complimented how beautiful it was.
Since it was the three of us, if we needed more room we would’ve let down the 3rd row seats. In the trunk area, it has a little compartment you can place smaller things, which was helpful. The best part about our night was we didn’t have to make multiple trips home to drop off gifts.
Great Gas Mileage
We drove all throughout Gwinnett, Hall, Lumpkin and Dawson counties throughout the night and didn’t have to fill-up one time. As someone who drives a lot, gas mileage means the world to me and it something all drivers should think of.
We all know kids love to play on their phones, especially whenever we’re out. The 2018 Mazda CX9 has USB outlets throughout the vehicle and the kids absolutely loved it. In the front, my wife and I occupied both ports as she plays with her phone all the time too. For me, mine is used to connect my phone so I can play music from my phone during our trip.
Black Friday weekend was a success as I was able to get my kids all their gifts. I’ll be honest, I’m not a fan of going shopping all the time, so fortunately I got everything out of the way that weekend. If that wasn’t enough, my mother-in-law has been wanting a good heater for her house and we picked that up also. We really liked the 2016 Mazda CX-9, was crazy about the 2017 model, but we fell in love with the 2018 Mazda CX9.
