Pros: The driver's operation center.
Cons: The Coin holder. It's located on the left side of the driver and very difficult to deal with while driving.This vehicle really surprises with the calm and quietness that it exudes during high or low speed operation. The cabin quietness is unbelievable and the ride is extremely comfortable.
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.
Pros: Bose sound system
Cons: rear visability
Advice: Drive it before you dismiss it as potential purchaseTest drove or looked at about 10 other 7 passenger vehicles. crossovers and mini vans. After about 5 minutes in a CX9 we were deciding which of the 4 on the lot we were going to buy. We were looking for something that would tow a ski boat, but still had good gas mileage and a comfortable ride. For the price we Bought this SUV over a GMC Acadia because of the interior and the way if drive and handles. Has a nice cockpit style dash, awesome stereo. and the fit and finish are excellent
