#6 of 7 Engine not powerful enough to keep up
Jul 14, 2009 (8:40 am)
My experience with my 2009 SX4 crossover touring automatic has been that it has to fight to keep up with traffic while climbing the Rockies (as well as in slight changes in highway grade on I-25)...with the engine growling like a beast....and not in a good way....it guzzles even more gas while climbing.....this car is very much a flatlander best suited for driving around town well under 45mph....perhaps the manual transmission is better...I do not know. What I do know is that I was a huge mistake for me to buy this car. I was much better off with my old car.

I got a 5-spd specifically so that I could downshift for more power when I need it. I find acceleration to be adequate, although granted, I cannot keep up with the Hemi's.
