It's cheaply made and you can tell.

2015 Mazda CX-9

It's quirky. The doors are not weighted correctly and they fly open with the slightest breeze. The doors don't lock with the internal buttons and dealer claims it's a safety feature. It's highly annoying. The driver exterior button that unlocks the doors only unlocks the drivers door but the one on the passenger side unlocks them all. It's not convenient when your hands are full and your kids are with. You have to open the driver door and hit the interior button. There is zero convenience in that "convenient" button. Even though we have the highest level edition, the passenger seat does not adjust up and down and it sits very high. I'm only 5'9" and it's uncomfortable because it's so close to the roof. There is very little I am happy with in this vehicle and I would not buy a Mazda again.

The locking system is horrible and the doors are horrible. You will be nothing but irritated with it.

2015 Mazda CX-9

I like the third row seating and the stereo console. I very much dislike the doors. They are huge and they are not weighted properly so they fly all over the place with the slightest breeze. The door locks are absolutely awful. I can not lock using the button on the door, it requires use of the key fob. Using the quick entry unlock button on the driver side is maddening. It only unlocks the drivers door and then I have to reach in and unlock the rest. The passenger exterior quick button unlocks all the doors. What sense does that make? If the car is running, I can't use they key fob to unlock the car. So many quarks that make day to day life with small children incredibly irritating. I will NEVER buy a Mazda again.

Safest and roomiest of the Mazda vehicles

2015 Mazda CX-9

I love my CX-9 because it drives like a car but operates like an SUV. I have a 3rd row which while it can be useful I never really use it. With two young children still in car seats it is difficult yet for the 3rd row passengers to get in and out of the vehicle. However when I have used it, without the kids in the car, it is a perfect addition to have. By not having the third row up I get a lot more trunk space which allows for more storage for long trips. The car rides well and I, thankfully, have never had any issues. This is my second CX-9 as I had gotten I to an accident with my first. I was wearing my seatbelt but was very impressed with how safe I was during the crash.
