As the reviews said CX-9 is a cool design, great drive and excellent value for money. Drives like a car, is a very roomy people carrier with sporty looks. Am getting about 20 - 21 mpg during the first month!
Looks, ride comfort, not too expensive options (backup camera, remote start, Bose Audio, etc.), fun to drive, large 3rd row seat.
Only negatives are: the rear doors are too big (could easily have been a few inches less). Rear liftgate window doesn't open (seems like a common problem among CUVs).
