2010 Mazda CX-9 SUV Touring 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


Review

Bought a used 2010 Touring with Bose package/rear view/ power lift around a week back. Like it so far. Drive is very smooth. Transitioning from car, rear view camera helps a lot. Very calm until 60 miles. after that gets little noisy. Did i say drive is smooth. yep.


Favorite Features

Keyless entry is nice. Love the bluetooth setup and bose sound is good.


Suggested Improvements

Wish the moonroof is bigger. didn't find the AC outlet. probably not a standard feature. More space option. should learn from mazda5 team.

Review

Really nice price on a well built car. Wind noise on the highway is annoying, and interior lacks storage, but overall a great deal.


Favorite Features

quality, price


Suggested Improvements

redesign the interior so that there is more storage, wind noise excessive.

2010 Mazda CX-9 SUV Touring 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I did tons of research on crossovers and the CX9 blew away the competition. We test drove the Traverse, Flex, Subaru Tribeca & Pilot. The CX9 handles like a dream, it doesn't feel like a big SUV at all. The safety ratings are great, which we experienced firsthand- we were rear- ended within the first month. The triple-H construction lived up to its design, the other car was totaled, ours fared much better. The CX9 has the lowest percent chance of rollover among its competitors, even better than the Subaru. Dash controls are intuitive, heat & A/C work great. Lots of room for kids or adults in 2nd & 3rd rows. Seat folding is easy (the Ford and Chevy were both more difficult). Test drive one!


Favorite Features

Interior feels like a luxury vehicle, but at a very reasonable price. We love the Bose sound system. The back- up camera is a must-have- SUVs of this size are just hard to see out of. Comfortable ride & seats, the sliding 2nd row is fantastic, and there is ample room behind the 3rd row for groceries.


Suggested Improvements

The doors are BIG- that's what makes the CX9 look like a smaller vehicle from outside. The doors swing wide, and can be difficult in tight parking spots. There is also limited headroom when getting in/out of the vehicle- once you're inside, headroom is fine, but the frame sits low. Gas mileage is ok

Review

Replaced an '05 Trailblazer. CX-9 is far superior in quality, style and fun factor. Much quieter and better fuel economy than the blazer 6 cyl. The leather seats, and orange dash glow was very easy to read and attractive. Very quiet and great handling on the road. Acceleration was powerful and smooth. No jerky downshifting when trying to merge. Bose sound is a premium. Bluetooth is a must in today's 'connected' environment. This is my first new Mazda and I look forward to a great driving and ownership experience. We got the 2010 Touring FWD. I also did aggressive braking and acceleration and was very impressed. A 'Zoom-Zoom' 4 sure. Beat the Traverse, Edge, Sorento easily!


Favorite Features

Style, performance and handling. *read above.


Suggested Improvements

Traverse has better mileage, but worse acceleration (Traverse weights more). Suggest squeezing a few more mpg out of the CX-9. I've read they will do just that on the 2011 models. But, I didn't want to wait for those!

Review

We looked at Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot, Acura MDX & Mazda CX-9 when it seemed that our next car should be a family car. Loved my Acura 3.2 TL Sedan but Acura MDX was priced out. Highlander and CX-9 were the finalists and CX-9 won in aesthetics and functionality. Based on reviews, we didn't get the Navigation & wanted to avoid the 20" wheels of the Grand Touring, so got a Touring. Leather is OK. Would like better in-dash NAV since the Garmin 1350T we bought is nowhere close to the Acura NAV we had 10 years ago! Our dealership seems to have a deal with ADS(?) who will install a better NAV (Kentwood) with warranty. $1600/$1900. Yet to try. Paid $30,200.00 with 60 month no interest.


Favorite Features

Been driving for about 2-3 weeks. Beautiful exterior, decent ride, car like drive, enough legroom in the third row. I don't like to drive large cars but CX-9 is very comfortable to drive. Storage/legroom is adequate for all rows. Love the bluetooth!


Suggested Improvements

No climate control in the 3rd row. Didn't get radio upgrade and the 3rd row speakers do not seem to be working. Yet to contact dealer. When 2nd row middle seat is being used, there should be a pullout cup holder option. Make auto lift gate (hatch) opener standard across board!! Regret not getting it.
