Only had my new CX9 FWD for 3 weeks but everything favorable written about it in other reviews by actual owners, is pretty much true. I bought the Sport Model and had leather seats and Sirius radio installed.
Very Comfortable leather seating feels great for my bad back. Very smooth 6 speed transmission, with a manual shifting option. Powerful very large V6 engine gives excellent acceleration. Very solid feel on the road. Adequate leg room for the 2nd and 3rd row passengers.
Find a way to increase fuel economy, as it is below most of the other crossovers I looked at in this price range and the only negative feature I could find.
