Good SUV, but
By hss_rao on
2008 Mazda CX-9 Sport 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
Pretty good CUV. Rides smooth on flat roads, but engine rattles on uphill and makes high rev noise inside the cabin. Lot of wind noise. Looks are ultimate, unmatched. Interior comfort if also good.Too early to tell anything about reliability or performance. fogs inside a lot even under mild humid condition. Lot of people compare this car with MDX, but it definitely cannot match the MDX engine smoothness(Absolutely no noise in MDX), but at least my car makes a lot of engine noise. I don't have a lead foot. Suspensions are very good.
Back up camera in the mirror, good cargo space, decent third row leg space. Locking window glass, switches of the light on the other 3 window glass up and down buttons.
Light on door lock/unlock and window glass lock buttons. Standard 6 cd changer in dash, rear air duct for 3rd seat. Reduce engine noise on acceleration. Improve gas mileage, did not expect so low with 6 speed gearbox. After locking the window glass, driver should be able to control the windows.
