Good Video @jtpc2007

in regards to the rear windows, This has always been a pet peeve of mine as well. I believe the windows in the back are like that for some type of safety concern. any 4 door I have owned had that, the last one I had was a cavalier and I was able to take the door panel off and removed the stopper (block of rubber) from the inside so I could get the windows all the way down. Maybe something to look into?

I like the review but the niggles never really occurred to me.

Currently CX5 SportNav 2.2 diesel automatic and AWD.
Formerly CX3 SportNav 1.5 diesel automatic and AWD.

In my opinion, If you bought a Jeep, Ford or GM, then you would have a list of significant issues. If those are the most significant disadvantages an owner realizes after a month of ownership, then I call the CX3 a winner.

Ceramic GT, AWD, 18% Window Tint, Matte Black Enkei Raijin 18x8 with Black Spline Drive Lugs, 225/45R18 Michelin AS3, All Weather Floor/Cargo Mat, Splash Guards, De-Badged Tailgate, Black Plastic-Dip Accents

Your first concern could be addressed with some rubber washers inbetween the screws and holes they go into, along with locktite for the screws since due to the vibration, over time it might loosen. Rubber washers could very well contribute to a much more solid sound when closing

My biggest complaint is my CX3 is missing the foot pedal normally located on the left side of the brake pedal.
