#416 of 547 2010 Mazda CX-9 wind noise
Jun 23, 2011 (5:31 pm)
I met with a district rep for the wind noise problem. He blew me off and said the wind noise is "normal". I drove the 2011 Mazda CX-9 that he was driving. Little to no wind noise. I drove 2 other 2010 CX-9's. Little to no wind noise. I drove my brothers Toyota Highlander. Little to no wind noise. How can Mazda think that anyone paying $30,000 for a new SUV would be happy with it when the wind noise coming through the front windows is so loud that it's still distracting even turning the radio way up, not to mention them fogging up to about 6 inches from the botton when it's cold out and the heat is on. I don't even like getting into it anymore. It's not fun to drive like that.

I just had my rear calipers replaced. Cleared up a squeal that was happening after brakes warmed up. Also it fixed the parking brake which used to have a long travel, now it is only a few inches.
My rear brakes had been updated by the dealer at 28,000 miles for the problems you mention (new shims and bracket and pads with rotors machined), but I don't think they lubricated the new pads when they installed them and did not adjust the parking brake.
#418 of 547 CX-9 Transmission Whine in 6th Gear
Jul 16, 2011 (6:59 pm)
My '09 CX9 has a noticeable whine when in 6th gear at mid 40's mph. The dealer says all CX-9 have a whine in 6th gear, and further that the transmission in this vehicle has been problem free. Fluid level, smell and color all check out. Do others have this whine, and if so was it addressed by Mazda if you pursued it? Thank you.

We have the 2010 CX-9....No WHINE!! Dealer has got to be kidding you! It's like saying: Yes flames always come out the back after you reach 75 mph!".
Check tires, wheel bearings, axel fluids. Dealer needs to fix this if covered under warranty. (Tires not covered, of course). Could be the axels?
Axle whine is a continuous, steady state tonal sound, emitted from the differential unitís hypoid gears. It is essentially induced by torque variations. This can be as a result of resonant conditions or torque fluctuations caused by engine order vibrations, compounded by gear transmission error. The principal mechanism of gear whine noise generation is, therefore, through transmission of vibration from the gear shafts and bearings to the differential housing, which is radiated as noise.

Now they are telling me it is a problem with the design of the mirrors. Funny - only occurs when wind is blowing from driver's side - not the passenger's side. If the wind is really blowing, I don't even have to be moving. I can be at a stop sign and hear it. Raise the carpet and sweep this problem under it. I think that is where I am.

I have a similar issue with my 2010 cx9 grand touring. i have ~28K miles and plan to ask the dealer/service folks about it today Ö we'll see how it goes but i kinda got a feeling it won't go well.

I agree with you. Just bury this issue. I posted this problem more than a year ago. Could be a design issue with the mirror as you mentioned. Anyways, It's been a year, and I am happy with my car. Runs great, looks great and feels great

I hope you get this message. I have been a techician for 38 years and have seen your problem many times. The wind noise is coming from under the bottom of the windshield because it is not sealed correctly to the body. Take a towel and stuff it between the dash an the windshield bottom as you drive and have the noise. If the noise lessens alot this is for sure the problem. The frost you talk about six inches up on the windshield is a "for sure" give away that this is your problem. Have a windshield company take out the windshield and renew the sealer. Your problem will be solved.

Just bought a CX-9 in May. Same problem with shuddering brakes after 5,000 miles. I thought that they were going to give out on I95 last weekend. Also, I have had problems with the paint and cheap sheet metal buckling during washing and waxing. If dealer cannot fix brake problem, I plan to return car under Maryland's Lemon Law. I could see brake problem evolving into a recall issue.

Anyone know if the install of the NEW ONSTAR mirror would interfere with any electronics etc on the CX-9, GT? Their website lists the car as compatible, would like it for my wife; I love onstar!dogdoc
