Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
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.
ROAD NOISE BAD BAD BAD
Pros: LOOKS GREAT
Cons: Lack Mazda support,MPG,ROAD NOISEThis SUV looks good , but that is where it ends. The road noise is so bad you can't TALK or hear the RADIO. Dealer said it was the tires. WE put on the quitest tire Bridgestone makes at 10,000 miles no help at the cost $600 out of my Hipocket.Tire Alignment was off from start with pulling to left and tire wear. at 5000 miles. Again I had to pay. Dealer said noise was wind noise and we took the rack off the top no help. MPG REAL BAD city 15 road 17. THE FORD ESCAPE is the same car and had same problems. Parts are hard to get. Just so you I am ASE MEC and oversaw the maintance on 80,000 units over 45 years in manintance
Pros: Way it drives
Cons: Cheap black floor coveringDrives good. Wish it were a little larger. Gas mileage is average. Would like it better if the interior were a little more expensive looking.
Good versatile AWD vehicle
Cons: Fuel economyI've owned two of the Escape/Tribute twins now, and enjoyed both. They have reasonable performance (3.0L V6), good utility, a manageable size, and with the AWD model, drive well in snow. With kids the size is small for vacation including luggage, so I'm considering a CX-9 for my next vehicle.
Cons: The front endUgly I have a 2005 mazda 3 that is an awesome car!!!
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.
