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


Review

Purchased new CX9 AWD GT a couple weeks ago. Replaced 2002 Chevy TrailBlazer that was wrecked and totaled. Looked at Toyota Venza & Highlander, Honda Pilot, Acura MDX and Chevy Traverse. In comparing features, style, size, towing, performance and price, the CX9 was an easy choice. 0% for 60 mo. was the deal clincher. Leaps and bounds ahead of the TB. Wife drives it regularly and loves it - very important. Only disappointment is mileage, but expected this based on research done. Have owned Ford, Chrysler, Dodge, Chevy, Toyota and Honda as daily drivers - so far very happy with the Mazda - hope it stays that way.


Best Features

Performance and handling are very good. Interior seems fairly luxurious with leather seating, climate control and electronics. Wife loves the IPOD interface added as an accessory.


Worst Features

Improved mileage. No reason these days for this vehicle not to average 18-24 mpg. Interior storage is lacking - gear selector should be moved off- center to allow two additional cup holders in center console.

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


Review

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.


Best Features

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.


Worst Features

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.

Review

We love the smooth, quiet, and comfortable ride. AC, seats, quality, blind spot monitoring, stereo, all great. Test drove Highlander, Venza, Pilot, Veracruz, Santa Faye, Cross Tour (Honda) (our second choice), Kia Sorento, & Murano and this was the BEST by far. Just got back from a 1500 mile trip. Got about 21 MPG. Love the ride, quietness, memory seats, key less entry and start and all the other features.


Best Features

Smooth, quiet ride, key less start- entry, dual mode, comfortable seats, bluetooth, room, three row seating, nav, stereo radio with Sirius. Real quality all around. Love the looks both in and out. Best all around SUV on the market.


Worst Features

Only thing I could suggest is the Nav. Not as user friendly as my Garmin and the Data base is not as good. It does work and will get you there.

Review

A few areas have made us not pleased with our choice. Gas mileage is much less than advertised. The car is too heavy - sluggish when passing on highway or going up hill, poor gas mileage. There is a design flaw with the doors. They are big, unnecessarily heavy, and balanced wrong. When parked level, they will naturally fall hard to a full open position. As the doors are so big, they will catch any wind and open hard. The check strap on the door is under-engineered for such a heavy door. Within 45 days, the check strap broke, the door slammed back into car body. $1500 damage and Mazda will not even return phone calls or acknowledge issue. Not happy with the CX9 or Mazda, give both a pass.


Best Features

Smooth ride, roomy interior.


Worst Features

Re-engineer car - weight, proportions, gas mileage, etc. Customer service is terrible. Mazda obviously does not want repeat customers. The heavy doors are dangerous for kids and prone to break the support straps.

Review

First of all, this is a great vehicle for the price paid. It offers a lot when compared to premium vehicles. Bluetooth, moonroof, Sirius, blind spot monitoring, 20 inch wheels, heated leather seats, innovative styling, beautiful gauges, back up camera, auto. rear hatch, auto dimming mirrors, tire pressure monitoring, 0% financing and more. Best of all it is fun to drive and has good cargo capacity and can be made better by adding more driver storage bins or compartments. Gas mileage can be better but I average 21.5 city/hwy. combined. Driven 7000+ miles w/o any issues. I recommend this over Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot, GMC Acadia, Chevy Traverse, Kia and Hyundai. Indeed a Great buy!


Best Features

bluetooth, Bose audio, performance and power, cargo and passenger capacity


Worst Features

increase storage bins for driver, make it less bumpy, improve steering wheel accuracy when driving straight for long time, steering has a little play
