Great SUV but
By HssRao on
2008 Mazda CX-9 Sport 4dr SUV (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
It is since 3 weeks, 1000 miles on it. Drive is smooth, but engine roars a lot even on small uphills, or starting from signal light. So too much of interior sound when the gear changes higher. Good pick up, but cannot compare with MDX, absolutely no sound inside. Good shock observers, lot of pot holes literally cannot be felt. Basic Audio system is not great. I have given 9 for performance, reliablity as it is too early to be determined. Expected better fuel economy from a 6 speed gear box.
Rear back up camera, lot of interior space, sliding second row seats.
Lighted buttons on door lock and windows lock button. Remove something obstructing in passenger side foot which hits the shin bone if you stretch your leg. 3rd row, air vent as it fogs too much even in very slight humid environment. 6CD changer and MP3 standard iwth 8 speakers.
