I've been a devoted MDX guy and thought I'd try something different. The CX9 seems to be abouit 85% of what an MDX is. That's ok given the price. And it's fun to drive. BUT the options are so confusing that you've got to ask questions about what you're getting and not getting. With the MDX you've got about two choices and you get everything. Some models have the side warning thing, some don't; depends on when during the year it was built. If you want a sun roof you can't have the entertainment pckg. and so on. What most bugs me that there was no 'home link' system to open the garage - something you don't even think to ask about these days. Lesson is go over EVERY detail several times!
Great colors. Fun to drive
Simplify the option packages so people know exactly what they're getting.
