"Great Vehicle!"4.5 starson by bbaker1234
Pros: -Handles like a car with excellent all wheel drive traction in snow and rain.
-Great interior, 3rd row seating is a plus
-Easy and fun to drive
Cons: -gas mileage not the greatest...have only been averaging 20mpgs (city & highway)
Summary: Don't listen to the bonehead's summary below on his CX-7, this is for a CX-9, not even the same engine dude. I have owned the 2010 CX-9 for 10 months and still love driving it every day! When I talk to people, I compare it to driving a car with the same amount of room as a minivan. AWD with all the features is the way to go if possible. (We have the navigation system, bluetooth, rearview camera which are all fantastic). As mentioned above, there are crossovers with better gas mileage, but I knew that before I purchased. I didn't mind the tradeoff of less mpgs for larger interior with 3rd row and all of the extra options for the price I paid. Look for great deals in the spring/summer for the new models as I took advantage of Mazda's zero percent financing!
