2010 Mazda CX-9 Touring 4dr SUV AWD (3.7L 6cyl 6A)
After owning for 16 months, the Cons, especially #1, outweigh the Pros.
- Passenger side air bag turns off when anyone
<105ish lbs sits there.
Taken it to the dealer & they say there's nothing they can do about it.
This leaves my light passengers completely unprotected.
Should be a recall.
- Front defrost is terribly designed - doesn't span the length of the windshield & sits too far away from the base of the window.
Wipers freeze over and have to be manually snapped in a snow storm.
- Sub par radio reception
- Hatchback too low.
6'1" husband hits head A LOT
- Highway MPG = 19 at best
- Terrible leather quality
- Excellent 4 wheel drive
- Super roomy
For the record.
The passenger airbags are supposed to shut off when someone (like a child) is sitting in the seat.
That is actually a safety feature put in place to protect them against the force of the airbag.
So infact that should be a Pro.
We just got ours and love it!
