This is the best vehicle we've owned for long road trips and tooling around town.

The Mazda CX 9 is a very reliable and practical SUV with great acceleration and overall performance. We have been on many road trips with our CX9 and the interior cabin is spacious and very comfortable. The 3rd row seating has been particularly useful with growing kids and their friends. My CX9 is 10 years old and still going strong (with minimal mechanical problems), and we're looking forward to buying a new CX 9 soon!

This car can go up to 200 miles per hour.

This car is amazing and sometimes there are a few problems here and there so sometimes when you turn on off the car the air conditioning turns on so you have to turn the car back on to turn it off. This car is safe on roads it goes up high heels really easily and always travels through roads easily. When you are on bumpy roads you can't really feel the bumpy rocks because this car is so smooth.

After 10 years, it's been relatively maintenance free. Tires, brakes and a window repair... not bad for 10 years!

The third row seat is nice to have, and even without using it, the "trunk" room is huge. We are a family of 5, and the size of the interior makes everyone more comfortable. I also like that it drives like a car, instead of an SUV/truck. Negatives would be the interior trim... it started peeling after owning the vehicle for 4 years. We've now had it for 10.
