Vehicle

2008 Mazda CX-9 Grand Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)

Review

The transmission noise/uncertainty and lurching is a continuing source of annoyance. The visibility is just fair at best. The fuel economy isn't close to 'EPA estimates' and it's hard to get in and out w/o banging my head on the too low entry/roof. My favorite passenger isn't happy about ride comfort either. A very over-rated vehicle.

Favorite Features

Handling and engine performance are good.

Suggested Improvements

Ergonomics need major work - visibility and low roof line are major faults. EPA fuel mileage estimate must have been hyped by a granny driving it below the speed limits. Transmission searching for the right gear is like a random walk; downshifts are NOT seamless!
