Even being a 4400lbs 3rd row seat SUV, I was surprised of the car-like handling and ride. The steering is light and inputs are responsive. The 273HP V-6 is smooth and mated to a 6 speed automatic transmission that makes use of the power by keeping the revs up when accelerating.
Awesome car, and actually fun to drive!
2012 Mazda CX-9JP vR - Austin, TX04/01/2017
I love my Mazda CX-9! I needed something larger to transport kids and their friends, I dreaded getting a new car because I am really not a big car kind of person. I test drove Infiniti, Acura, Honda and nothing came close to the Mazda! For being as large as it is, it is actually quite zippy and not a bore to drive! The space inside is amazing and it is easy to maneuver the seats. It has a lot of creature comforts, and all in all is just a really nice vehicle. I could not be happier. This was my first Mazda, but will not be my last.
Have owned this car since new. Now have 83,000 miles and have had only only small problem with the interior cabin ventilation fan. Just regular maintenance. Car is powerful, smooth riding, great BOSE stereo, 4 wheel drive for added traction, roomy cabin and third row folding seats. Body is tight with now rattles, and still drives like when it was new.
