Cx-9 all around great investment.

Some of the features I love include the backup camera with backup lines and beepers, the automatic windshield wipers you can override, the folding flat backseat and third row seat, the extra space you still have if you have the third row seat up, the option to give the backseat control over their temperature, and the ease of the drive/ handle of the car. Things I am not so fond of include how long the front end is, no beepers on the front end as it is hard to park sometimes, the confusion of the floor mats for the backseat and third row (if you pull them out to clean them, it is a puzzle to get back in), and no automatic start.

Good reliable family car, but missing a few major details.

Love the Brown color and three rows. Leather seats are great. Love the camera as well, and the heated seats and the ability to push heat and air into the rear area. Wish it had more room in the consul area, whoever designed it did not think about things like phones and chargers and other miscellaneous items that you use every day and bring into the car with you every day. Also, there were a few features on my previous, older vehicle that weren't on this one which seemed odd. No auto start. No button I could push on my key remote to open the trunk before I got there. Very handy to have this when your hands are full.

Lock system is confusing!

Love my car, only thing I dislike is the locking system. It is a keyless entry car, so will not lock while key is inside. However, if I unlock the car from my house and walk out to grab something, I can not use the lock/unlock button in the car. What's the point in it if it doesn't work? So I have to go inside and remember to press the lock button on the KEYFOB.
