Best luxury S.U.V. for the money !
Pros: Nice quiet ride with the Bose stereo system ! 6 speed transmission with manual option .
Cons: Gets around 24 M.P.G. not bad for heavy rig .Great handling compared to Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander . Much quieter interior when on the road then the others for the same money . Great styling and seats fold down nice and flat. Great engineering on the third row seats and access is easy with the second row sliding forward feature .
Great handling crossover
Pros: Handling... It's fun to drive in the passes
Cons: Gas mileage could be better in townWe just returned from a roundtrip from Denver to Phoenix with stops in Santa Fe. Our CX9 replaced a GMC Yukon. The Mazda is so much more comfortable and more pleasurable to drive. We've made this trip many times before in the Yukon, but this was the best driving experience.
Pros: able to have a all around view of the road
Cons: getting use to driving a bigger carI went from a Camery to a cx9. it's taking some getting use to but overall i lke driving it much. The visibility is much better. it handles great on the road, IT'S GREAT.
Pros: bose sound system,manumatic trans.,sporty styling,20'wheels,double trapezoidal exhaust
Cons: getting inside the car,windshield too low,might hit head(like my friend who wants to testdrive it)
Advice: if you want something different and exciting to drive,this car is for you.ZOOM-ZOOM!Had my CX-9 since Oct.'09.I was very satisfied w/ it and never had any problem so far.My family took it to Orlando,about 9hrs drive from our house.It was 9hrs of thrilling ride.This car can really go fast w/out noticing it.Inside cabin is quiet,actully more quiet than my prevoius minivan and my CR-V.20' wheels are not so bad as on other reviews,as long as you dont go to really bumpy roads.Gas was not as bad as i expected,sometimes im getting 22-24 hwy at 65-70mi/hr speed,to me its pretty good for a vehicle this size.All in all,my family loves this crossover,cant wait to longdrive it again.
