Test drove and investigated the 2015 CX-9 and decided to buy a 2013 Acura MDX for slightly less money. Acura's SH-AWD system and better road manners were the clinchers. The Mazda handled pretty well, and its features were nice, but the Acura had more technology and user friendly technology. Also the V6 in the Mazda is made by Ford (so I understand) and doesn't have the grunt of the Acura or the highway acceleration (50-70 mph). The Acura also seems to have more interior room and cargo space. Since we weren't really giving up anything in terms of features or performance we decided to buy the 2013 Acura (with less than 30K miles) with a year remaining on the factory bumper to bumper and two years on the power train warranties and save several thousand dollars.

My wife and I have had this car four weeks and love it, we get several comments about how sharp and nice the car looks, both style and trim lines. The only reason I gave a lower rating is there isn't much storage compartments in the passenger area etc.

We looked at these because of the closeout price, but they are just dated. Hard plastic, dated touchscreen, passenger seat too high, poor gas mileage - just too many knocks against it. Hopefully, the 2016 (2017) redesign will get Mazda caught up with the Edge and. Pilot

The only thing really bad is the gas mileage

We knew that gas mileage was not going to be good before we bought the vehicle, but we got such a good deal on it that it somewhat compensated for the additional fuel cost.

Toxic Fumes Fill Car when Impending T-Case Fails

The CX-9 at first seemed to be a great car, very roomy and fairly comfortable. Fuel economy seems to be low for the size of car, averaging only 14-16 in-town, and 18 on the highway. The biggest challenge, and reason for the bad review is the Transfer Case. I have found several other reviews, matching this issue, and as far back as 2011. The transfer case failed at 12,500 miles, and filled the car with toxic oil fumes from the gear oil aspirating through the venting system. My wife and daughter got sick, and had respiratory issues through the evening and night. The technician informed me this was a known issue with the CX-9, and they have new T-Cases on hand due to how many they replace. The tech also informed me that this happens frequently at even a lower mile range, sometimes as early as 3,000 miles. Customer service was completely accepting of responsibility, and attempted to down play the "known" part of the issue. Even though it is easily found on several review sites, and the dealer had recent examples to discuss with me while I was turning it in for repair. The toxic fumes filled the car within a few seconds, and fully engulfed the interior with a stench that has not come out, similar to cigarette smoke. On a smaller, and a much less horrifying note, the Blue Tooth in this car takes up to five minutes to connect. Very poor blue tooth system.

A surprisingly nimble upgrade from the Mazda 3

There is so much great about this vehicle that I hate to nag about the few inadequacies and design flaws, but just to get it out there for discussion....For instance, I would like about 30 more horsepower on the acceleration. I like the extra interior width, but I miss the way the Mazda3 seats kind of hug you and make you feel secure. I don't like the way that the transmission downshifts to 4th gear when you are going over 60 and let your foot off the gas. It seems to assume you are entering an emergency slow-down mode..but I'm just trying to coast downhill for gas mileage...I'd be complaining a lot more if gas was still $4 a gallon. Even if I throw it in neutral at speed, it just doesn't seem to roll free as if there trans. is still engaged. It syncs with my Samsung G3 for music but fails to download texts...weird. Why does the stereo button for "seek Down" have the arrow on the RIGHT side of the button? Shouldn't it be on the LEFT edge? I can see why the $300+ storage area "cover" is not found on many of these, It just doesn't seem to fit and cover nearly as well as my friend's Tribute, which was what prompted me to order it...I am kind of disappointed with it. You can easily see behind the 2nd row even with the cover installed. I suppose they changed the way it covers due to the 3rd row of seats. The cargo cover is flimsy, not rigid like it was in the Mazda3. Also, it cannot be left in place when the 3rd row seats are up. I wish they had designed it so it could be parked behind the 3rd row of seats AS WELL AS the second row. Overall, it is so much fun to drive that I find myself always volunteering to drive when I go somewhere with my friends or family. It really amazes me how much it drives like a sports car...in the form of a bus...a little more HP and I could be convinced that it actually IS a sports car. The suspension is amazing! Paired with the AWD, I have applied modest effort trying to get it to lose traction with and without rain and have had no success...it just grips the road. Wish they had retractable running boards available for my mom to get in easier. My main reason from upgrading from the Mazda3, I sometimes travel weeks at a time for work (or pleasure), the storage space is fantastic! The storage flexibility of so many bi-fold seats is something I find incredibly useful. Thank you Mazda!

great car for the price

its a great car, very roomy, great handling, but less than 30 days after buying this car, its at the dealer with Traction Control and Stability Control lights and issues. Brakes seems to be running low at only 13k miles and just over a year old

Luxury feel overall

SUMMARY: A true testament to a vehicle that hits the tuning sweet spot of suspension. As a first time Mazda CX-9 owner, the sporty yet luxury feel to the CX-9 is impressive for me and my passengers. We can actually have conversations at regular volume levels. I suprisingly look for ways to run errands and drive it more than any other vehicles I've owned. The CX-9 smoothly cruises in and out of highway traffic. You know a quality vehicle and suspension when you end up driving faster than you actually are. I always feel in control at highway speeds. It doesn't have an uncomfortable and unpredictable "float" to the ride as other SUVs such as my 2014 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS. The Tom Tom Navigation's input screen can be difficult to use when putting in destination addresses. The navigation does have an accurate (and free) traffic setting that shows "home to work" and "work to home" traffic with slow downs and construction clearly marked and continually updated. The bluetooth streaming audio connection is stronger and more like HD audio than other vehicles I've driven. The Bluetooth phone connection takes too long (30-45 seconds) to connect when starting up the vehicle which is frustrating. It even has a Pandora app built in which works perfectly. The climate control works great and I like the conveniently located (right behind the driver/passenger arm rest) 2nd/3rd row rear climate controls and the fan power can literally blow your hair like on a windy day. Passengers love it. The 3rd row has tolerable access with a side pull lever on both sides of the 2nd row seats. I chose the Grand Touring with DVD Player option (Grand Touring with sun roof isn't available with a DVD Player) and am glad I did. The kids watch the DVD player on a trip of any distance and makes it easy on parents that the kids have control of inserting the DVDs in the rear unit and not waiting for us to load the DVDs from the front. PROS: Handling, sporty styling, suspension, cavernous interior, all seating feels plush, DVD player, Bose sound system, navigation CONS: The 20" Grand Touring wheel package / low profile tires make the ride harsh on uneven pavement. On smooth highways, however, the ride is blissful and interior is quiet. Large doors require planned parking lot parking.

Before purchasing I tried a few other SUV's, none matched the handling characteristics of the Mazda. The vehicle feels planted on the highway during the worst weather conditions. At first the firm ride was a concern but it isn't meant to be a Town car. A firm ride is the trade off enabling the vehicle to perform more like a passenger car. No doubt you're aware of its size when behind the wheel but it drives like a smaller vehicle.
