My main goal in purchasing the car was to have enough room for the three kids and a friend or two while getting out of the minivan mode. The mazda cx-9 fit my requirements perfectly. My only complaint is that I wish it got better gas mileage as I drive 45 miles a day to and from work. The Bose sound system was very disappointing and is terribly flat when listening to the radio and is a little better when listening to the cd. I don't have satelite radio, although it is equiped for it. The ride is wonderful, manuevers in and out of traffic well, and is comfortable to ride in. All in all, its a great car, fits all my kids and their friends, still has cargo room, and rides comfortably and quietly.
We just purchased a 2007 Mazda CX-9 and we are thrilled! Our former car was a minivan and after years of bumpy, loud rides and ugly utilitarian styling, we are amazed that a car that seats 7 (6 comfortably) can be so comfortable and stylish. When I looked for the model based on reviews from various sources, I noticed there are not a lot out on the used car market. I can see why! I plan on keeping this car for a long time and I imagine others feel the same way. It is quiet, comfortable with a luxury car feel at a family car price. The mileage is fine for this size car. Folding the seats in the back is a breeze and makes for great cargo space. Rear seats have plenty of bells and whistles including a nice fold down cup holder between the seats. The only drawback is the lack of space to store snacks, etc. in the front as the between seat console is a bit tight. But that is a minor consideration and does not detract from a truly enjoyable experience.
