Here in the United States, we will have to wait a bit longer. And I will check the center console for it being solid or wiggly, not to mention a good review.Right. We thought we had a chance to get some answers to nagging questions directly from an experienced owner. If he was a real owner, all he wanted was to create some envy and move on without being helpful in even a small way. Classless.
Anyway, with recent roll outs in markets everywhere , it should not be long before
we hear from a real owner eager to share info. By the the way, I did not notice before the subject was brought up here, but the console in my cx5 is a bit wobbly.
Pete, if you don't mind me asking..what color did you go for and how is the interior quality...Hello SR45. As a new CX3 owner I will try to answer your 7 questions.
1 Info system. Only used the radio and iPod things so far - both really good sound quality. CD player is redundant. Do not use streaming I over Internet. Still a lot to learn though.
2 Sound insulation. This is subjective, but as I said in another post we are happy with the quiet cabin. Have not driven on rough dirt roads, but poorer quality hardtop no problem.
3 Loose knobs etc. none at all, it is all very tight.
4. Fit and finish. Have not found any blemishes or fit problems anywhere. It all looks classy.
5 Engine sound under acceleration. There is a "growl", but I think it sounds good and is not intrusive.
6 leg room. Not sure what measurements you need. With driver's seat fully forward: 15.5 inches from leading edge of front seat to brake pedal and 11.5 inches from leading edge of rear seat to back of driver's seat.
With driver's seat fully back: 22.5 inches from leading edge of front seat to brake pedal and 4.5 inches from leading edge of back seat to back of driver's seat. Maybe you could compare those measurements to your/ another car.
7. Reversing camera. Yes got this, came with the spec we bought. Ladder grid in the screen is useful and the car beeps a lot as I back out of the garage past the pillars.
Also, the car's computer is telling me I am averaging 8 litres per 100 kms (no idea of mpg). Have not done the second fill up yet to calc it myself.
Hope all this helps.
