There are so many things I loved about the CX9. But, my gem turned into a LEMON. At mile 4000, I heard something fall off the car and it's been rattling ever since. The rattling was mixed in with excessive road noise. Later the two noises were joined by squeaking and creaking like an old wood ship on the high seas. I took the CX9 to Mazda service in Vallejo at least 10 times for this issue! I"m not kidding. They tried to repair it about 3-5 times. No Luck! They replace the control arm twice and the struts twice and it's rattling as loud as ever.
Excessive Road Noise, Loud Squeaking from all over, heat comes through vents even when you set the climate control to match the exterior temp. Transmission gets hot on long trips.
New suspension and better quality. Honesty and integrity. Stand behind your cars and don't hide behind them.
