Summary of Complaint

To whom it concern. Leaking water in my passenger seat, at the beginning we though that was the blower motor, we change it, but then got wet again and it went bad again, but I found out that was a malfunction factory the problem with the air conditioning compressor. I took my car to 3 different shops, where the first two, drained my A/C I give up because I was paying money for nothing. I took the car to Mazda dealer, They told me that my car have a malfunction Factory and was about the a/c system. I talk to Mazda and ask them to replace it, because this was a factory problem. They refuse to do it. I found a recall for Mazda cx5 with the same problem but not my car that is Mazda cx9.

Summary of Complaint

MAZDA CX-9 PROBLEM 130,000 MILES-ON NOVEMBER 25TH, AS I WAS DROPPING MY CHILDREN TO THEIR SCHOOLS, THE DEFROST SUDDENLY STOPS WORKING. I TRY TO TURN THE FAN/HEATER ALL THE WAY, BUT TO NO AVAIL. I HAD TO USE A TOWEL TO WIPE THE WINDSHIELD. AS I PULLED INTO A CURVED SIDE, THE ENGINE TURNS OFF, I TURNED THE IGNITION KEY TO OFF, THEN STARTS THE ENGINE AGAIN, AND THE ENGINE LIGHT COMES ON. I PULLED OUT AND DROVE ABOUT SIX HUNDRED FEET AND PARKED. I CALL A MECHANIC AND I DROVE IT AGAIN FOR A MILE TO THE SHOP. HE OPENS UP THE HOOD AND POUR IN SOME COOLANT AND ALL THE COOLANT WERE ON THE FLOOR. HE IMMEDIATELY TOLD ME THAT COOLANT LEAKS AND OIL IS PROBABLY MIXED AND CAUSES THE ENGINE FAILURE. HE TOLD ME I HAD TO CHANGE THE ENGINE, BECAUSE FIXING IT WILL COST ME OVER TEN GRAND. I DROVE IT HOME, THEN THE FOLLOWING MORNING, I TOOK TO A DIFFERENT SHOP, THEY DID THE DIAGNOSIS AND RELATE THE SAME STORY THAT CHECK CODES SHOWED THREE CODES: P0016, CRANK POSITION SENSOR CORRELATION BANK ONE SENSOR A. 1285 CYLINDER HEAD OVER TEMPERATURE, 1299 CYLINDER HEAD TEMP PROTECTION. THE CODES INDICATE AN OVERHEAT SCENARIO THAT RESULTED IN ENGINE SHUT DOWN. THEY CHECK OIL AND FOUND MILKY SUBSTANCE INSTEAD OF OIL. PRESSURE CHECK FOR COOLANT LEAK PUSHED MILKY OIL OUT OF DIPSTICK TUBE. HEAD GASKET HAS FAILED DUE TO OVERHEATING AND THE COOLANT HAS CONTAMINATED THE ENGINE OIL. THEIR RECOMMENDATION IS TO REPLACE THE ENGINE, ASSEMBLY AND FLUSH COOLING SYSTEM. THEIR TOTAL ESTIMATE IS $10,900. I CAN'T AFFORD TO PAY FOR THIS SERVICE REPAIR. I CANNOT EVEN SPEND THAT MUCH OF MONEY ON ANOTHER CAR. WE BOUGHT THIS CAR THINKING THAT IT WILL TAKE US FOR SOME TIME BEFORE WE'LL NEED ANOTHER CAR. I CONTACTED MAZDA CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE, AND THEIR RESPONSE WAS, "WISH THERE WERE NEVER PART FAILURES", NOW, I'M STUCK. SO THIS IS MY STORY!!! SAFETY ISSUES: SUDDEN ENGINE SHUT OFF, DEFROST MALFUNCTION AND STEERING WHEEL.

Summary of Complaint

ONE DAY, MY KEYLESS DON STOPPED WORKING. THE NEXT DAY THE DOOR KEPT LOCKING WHILE I WAS DRIVING ALMOST EVERY TIME I TURNED THE STEERING WHEEL. THEN THE DRIVERS DOOR WOULDN'T UNLOCK, WHEN I MANUALLY UNLOCKED THE DOOR IT WAS HARD TO DO. I LUCKILY HAD THE WINDOWS ROLLED DOWN, GOT OUT THE VEHICLE AND AS SOON AS I SHUT THE DOOR I HEAR THE DOOR LOCK AND MY TWO YEAR OLD WAS IN THE BACKSEAT! AGAIN LUCKILY I HAD THE WINDOWS ROLLED DOWN OTHERWISE SHE MIGHT'VE BEEN STUCK! THEN THE ALARM KEPT GOING OFF AND WOULDN'T TURN OFF UNTIL I UNHOOKED THE BATTERY. IMAGINE MY FRUSTRATION. I BROUGHT THE CAR TO A MAZDA DEALERSHIP WHO SAID IT WAS THE DOOR LATCH/ACTUATOR. UPON PAYING HEFTILY WHEN I PICKED UP MY CAR, THE CLICKING OF THE DOOR LOCKS HAD STOPPED BUT THE UNLOCK BUTTON STILL WOULDN'T WORK AND THE ALARM WAS ONCE AGAIN GOING OFF! NOW THE CAR IS STILL AT THE MAZDA DEALERSHIP AND HAD ITS BCM/BCU REPLACED FOR A SUPPOSED 'FIX', I'M SUPPOSE TO PICK IT UP TOMORROW. SO I GUESS WE'LL SEE. THE APPARENT PROBLEM FROM ALL OF THIS? MY CX9 HAS A SUNROOF, WHICH MAZDA KNOWS THESE VEHICLES DON'T DRAIN PROPERLY WHICH CAUSES WATER TO GO TO THE BCM SHORTING IT OUT! THIS IS INEXCUSABLE AND COULD VERY WELL COST SOMEONE'S CHILD THEIR LIFE BECAUSE OF THE DOORS CONSTANT LOCKING AND UNABLE TO UNLOCK SOMETIMES MANUALLY. THE DEALERSHIP HAS SEEN IT ON MORE THAN ONE OCCASION AND MAZDA COMPANY HAS EVEN ADMITTED THIS FAULT! SO WHY IS THERE NO RECALL?!

TL* THE CONTACT OWNS A 2008 MAZDA CX-9. WHILE EXITING THE HIGHWAY AND DEPRESSING THE BRAKE PEDAL, THE VEHICLE FAILED TO STOP. THE CONTACT SWERVED TO THE RIGHT AND STRUCK A CURB, WHICH SLOWED THE VEHICLE DOWN. THE CONTACT QUICKLY SHIFTED INTO PARK. IN ADDITION, EACH TIME THE BRAKE PEDAL WAS DEPRESSED, THE SOUND OF BLOWING AIR WAS HEARD FROM THE DRIVER'S SIDE OF THE DASHBOARD. THERE WAS NO WARNING INDICATOR ILLUMINATED. THE VEHICLE WAS TOWED TO THE RAY SKILLMAN MAZDA DEALERSHIP, THE VEHICLE WAS NOT PHYSICALLY DIAGNOSED. THE TECHNICIANS VERBALLY INFORMED ME IMMEDIATELY OF BRAKE BOOSTER FAILURE BASED ON THE SYMPTOMS CONVEYED. THE PROBLEM STEMMED FROM A DEFECTIVE BRAKE BOOSTER. I DID CONTACT THE MANUFACTURER (MAZDA CORPORATE OFFICE IN CALIFORNIA) PRIOR TO CONTACTING THE NHTSA. MAZDA WAS UNCOOPERATIVE ON ANY AGREEMENT OF REPAIRS DUE TO THE EXTENDED WARRANTY PERIOD ENDING THAT I WAS UNAWARE OF." DUE TO THE UNETHICAL STANDING OF MAZDA FAILING TO ISSUE A RECALL, MYSELF AND FAMILY WERE PUT IN GREAT DANGER WHEN I EXPERIENCED THE BRAKE FAILURE. HAD WE BEEN AWARE OF THE FACT THAT MAZDA KNOWINGLY DISCOVERED THE MANUFACTURER DEFECT, I WOULD HAVE BEEN PROACTIVE IN ADDRESSING THE ISSUE PRIOR TO HAVING AN ALMOST TOTAL LIFE LOSS AND VEHICLE DAMAGE. I REQUESTED TO ESCALATE MY CONCERNS, AND SPOKE WITH A SUPERVISOR THAT SUGGESTED TO HAVE THE VEHICLE DIAGNOSED AND STATED THEY MAY OR NOT AGREE TO COVER SOME IF ANY OF THE CHARGES. AFTER MY VEHICLE SAT ON THE LOT FOR 5 DAYS AS WE TRIED TO COME TO AN AGREEMENT, MAZDA AGREED TO COVER 50% OF THE REPAIR COST (PARTS, LABOR, AND DIAGNOSTIC FEE.) IN ADDITION, THE TECHNICIANS ALSO DISCOVERED AN ISSUE WITH THE BRAKE LIGHT NOT LUMINATING ON THE DASHBOARD. THEY DETERMINED ALSO THE BRAKE LIGHT NEVER CAME ON WHICH WOULD HAVE BEEN AN INDICATOR OF SOME SORT OF BRAKE FAILURE. THE MANUFACTURER WAS NOT NOTIFIED.

FINALLY, SOMETHING HAPPENED & WAS ABLE TO CLOSE THE DOOR/LIFTGATE BY HAND. I TOOK THE CAR TO A REPUTABLE MACHANIC. THEY FOUND "MAZDA" HAD A "TSB" OUT ABOUT THE LIFTGATE LOCK ASSEMBLY AND IF THE LOCK FAILS, REPLACE THE ENTIRE PART. I TOOK THE CAR TO A MAZDA DEALER. THE COST TO SPECIAL ORDER THE PART AND REPAIR WOULD COST APPROX. $1200. I CAN NOT AFFORD TO REPLACE THE LOCK. I I AM A HADICAPPED PERSON. I USE MOBILITY DEVICES TO HELP ME REMAIN MOBILE AND GET TO AND FROM DOCTORS AND THERAPY.. I CANNOT TRANSPORT THESE DEVICES( WHEELCHAIR, ELECTRIC SKOOTER/CHAIR) BECAUSE OF THE LIFTGATE LOCK PROBLEM.

Summary of Complaint

LETTER TO MAZDA OF AMERICA ENGINEERING 10/2/2018 SUBJECT: SHARED DESIGN FLAW OF 2008 CX-9 AND 2008 FORD EDGE STAMPED STEEL FUEL TANK (FORD HAS RECALLED THIS TANK) MAZDA ENGINEERING, I HAVE LOOKED AT TWO DESIGNS TO SECURE TANKS. 1) TANK IS BOLTED AND ONE WHERE THE TANK IS BOLTED DIRECTLY TO A FRAME THROUGH THE SEALING FLANGE. (CURRENT CASE WITH CX-9 AND FORD EDGE -2008) 2) TANK IS SECURED USING TRADITIONAL TANK STRAPS THE FORD EDGE TANK (THE SAME AS CX-9) WAS RECALLED IN CASE 1 BECAUSE THE BOLTED FLANGE IS PART OF THE TANK. AFTER REPEATED FLEXING OF FRAME AND TANK WITH THE ADDITION OF CORROSION IN NORTHERN STATES, THE FIXED FLANGE RUPTURES THE THANK CAUSING SUDDEN FUEL LOSS ON A TANK THAT DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE CORRODED. THIS IS OF COURSE A LARGE LIABILITY AS BRITTLE FATIGUE FRACTURE IS BY NATURE SUDDEN. THERE IS NO WARNING FOR THE CUSTOMER. THEY PULL INTO THEIR GARAGE AT HOME OR WORK AND ARE A SUDDEN HAZARD. IN CASE 2, A TRADITION METHOD OF SECURING A TANK, THE LOAD IS DISTRIBUTED ON A STRAP. SHOULD THE STRAP FRACTURE THERE IS NO SUDDEN FUEL LOSS. THE STRAP CAN BE REPLACED. THE TANK STAYS SEALED. THIS DESIGN FLAW HAS RESULTED IN A SERIOUS ENOUGH ISSUE THAT FORD HAS RECALLED OVER 200,000 VEHICLES IDENTICAL TO THE CX-9 TO ADDRESS THIS EXACT ISSUE. FORD AND MAZDA SHARE NOT ONLY THE SAME DESIGN, BUT THE SAME TANK MANUFACTURER AND CHASSIS. THE MAZDA ISSUE IS MORE SERIOUS AS COATED TANKS DO NOT SHOW ANY WARNING SIGNS OF CORROSION. WHERE SALT AND BRINE ARE USED IN NORTHERN US DURING THE WINTER THESE TYPES OF COATINGS DO NOT REDUCE CORROSION. THEREFORE, THE NATURE OF THE TANK RUPTURE IS SUDDEN FATIGUE FAILURE WITH NO WARNING AND POSES A CERTAIN RISK OF FIRE IN AN ENCLOSURE SUCH AS A HOME GARAGE. FAILURE WAS - SUDDEN, UNABLE TO BE DETECTED AND LIFE THREATENING
