2010 Mazda CX-9 Expert Review
A perfectly sized, sleek SUV.
The Mazda cx-9 is a comfortable, easy to drive, roomy vehicle that holds 7-8 people and still has room in the far back to put backpacks, etc.. The car seems spacious inside, but not too large like dome oversized SUVs. It is easy to park, and has a helpful rear camera. The sunroof is large and may be easily and quickly opened by pushing a button to slide or vent the sunroof. A helpful sunroom shutter can be used to keep out any unwanted light. There are a few negatives. There is not a navigation system, and the backlight camera sometimes gets water on it and it must be wiped off to see clearly. Also, the cup holders have a small opening, so things can inadvertently slide into the hole with no way to retrieve them. Finally, there is a small strip of plastic on the floor in the 2nd row which is difficult to clean.
The flexibility of the amenities inside of the car are great. Built for lasting!
I have enjoyed my car for years. It rides well in the city and on the highways.The troubles that I have encountered have been the mirrors falling off or turning in while going through car wash. It is spacious and can see a family of six or more. The trunk space is great and it travels well on the highway. We did have an occurrence when The axle broke and the car was resting on the wheel. That was a very scary situation. The car is great on gas and the music from Boise system is wonderful.
Safe vehicle but some electrical issues.
The screen will show an error saying contact dealership. The dealership wants you to get a new system however it eventually starts working again. I feel it is very safe. This is my 2nd. The 1st one was totaled because someone hit me from the side while I was at a stop and it rolled on it is side, but I was not injured. I barely felt the hit. None of the windows shattered. It was only totaled because all the side airbags deployed.
