We have 2009 and have the same issues. We are even having issues with the piping rubbing away, kind of looks like its been rubbed by a course piece of sand paper. We don't even carry things in the seats, only us. We took to the dealership and they had the Area Rep look at it. The Area Rep claims it is normal wear and tear. Never heard or seen something like this before. We even sent letters to Mazda main offices for help to understand why and the response we get is that is normal.
Hope you get better answers than we did.

Just to be clear, my "lurching" is when I shift the car into park and then take my foot off the break. The car seems to move more than normal before it "catches" and stops. This doesn't happen if I set the parking break before removing my foot from the break (though I have never had to do this on any other car).
The car "lurches" again if I remove the parking break without putting my foot on the break (even though the car is in park), particularly if on an incline (even a modest one).
The dealer's service department thinks it is normal and let me try another CX-9. The experience was somewhat similar so it may just be part of the design, though the car seems to move more than I have ever seen with other cars.

What did you find out about the noise? I have a 2011 mazda cx-9 and have the same problem. I'm getting ready to take it in and wanted to know if they resolved the problem for you.

I do not have wind noise. Good luck.
#405 of 547 Powertrain Malfunction light on
May 01, 2011 (12:38 pm)
Purchased a 2011 CX9 Touring yesterday. Found a problem today. In the morning after the car is started, it did not respond to the gas peddle. It just moved slowly by itself. Then I noticed the powertrain malfunction (the little orange wrench) light is on. I stopped the car and shut off the engine. After the engine is restarted, the problem went away, but it appeared again in the shopping mall parking lot.
Searched on the web and it seems that there are few people (but not many) are having this problem. Anyone here experienced this problem? Will have to take the car to the dealer tomorrow.

This is a complete failure of the oprating systems of your car, and you should not be asking ANYONE on this great forum what to do! Have it towed immediately to the dealer, DO NOT DRIVE IT! Also, make sure it is documented as such, and not written up as a loose battery cable, or some other trivial thing. They will try to do that to get around the lemon laws of your state.
That being said, the CX-9 is the best of 40 cars I have ever owned... And I hope it all works out for you. Please tell us the outcome!
#408 of 547 Re: Front Suspension Problems?? [ewsnc]

Frontal metallic clicking/knocking noise finally got fixed after replacing strut bearings. For this problem, over the past two years, the car went through at least 3 days of major diagnosis (at two different dealers), replacement of both front struts, then the strut bearings. Now at 30K, it drives like new.
#409 of 547 Ongoing Brake Rotor problems 2007 CX-9
May 25, 2011 (11:00 am)
My 2007 CX-9 has 39,300 miles on it. I have had the brake rotors replaced 3 times. I just took it in again for rotor problems. The rotors are warped again! They tell me that they are no longer under warranty and they will need to be re-ground and not replaced.
The service guy told me it must be my driving style!
Mazda USA said there's nothing they can do because it's not a manufactures issue. Well it is an issue if the brake rotors only last 10,000 miles!
#410 of 547 Problem with auto door locking/ beeping
Jun 05, 2011 (2:49 pm)
I have a 2010 cx-9 GT. I got the auto door lock feature (the doors lock when you move away from the car with the smart key) turned on by the dealer few months ago. This feature has been working fine for few months now. However recently it stopped auto locking the doors. More annoyingly it keeps beeping for about 5-7 seconds after I try to lock the doors using the smart key ( as if it is warning me about something). Any idea what is going on?
