Summary of Complaint

Defective water pump located inside the engine that when failure occurs can cause coolant to leak into engine causing complete engine failure. This is a major safety hazard due to the fact that these cars with defective water pumps can break down with very little warning in the middle of a freeway! I have contacted Mazda who refuses to do anything due to it being outside warranty but will not acknowledge the safety concern sudden engine failure can cause on a perfectly maintained car. In California there is currently a lawsuit against Mazda for this issue and hundreds of other Ford and Mazda owners who have been caught in very dangerous situations due to this water pump failure issue. The situation we were involved in could have gone very differently and that was my family in the vehicle that Mazda seems to care about a couple thousand dollars more then the value of life... is just ridiculous! Please do the research yourself so no one has to loose their life over this.

Summary of Complaint

The contact owns a 2011 Mazda CX-9. The contact stated while driving 60 mph, upon approaching oncoming traffic, the vehicle unexpectedly shut-off. The contact was able to restart the vehicle and pulled the vehicle off to the shoulder. The contact stated that upon restarting the vehicle, the check engine warning light illuminated. Due to the failure and the warning light, the contact had the vehicle towed to an independent mechanic. Upon inspection of the vehicle, the mechanic informed her that coolant had leaked into the oil cylinder and they referred her to a dealer for assistance. The contact then had the vehicle towed to the dealer where they diagnosed the vehicle with a defective water pump as well as engine failure. The manufacturer was also notified of the failure and stated that the failure was caused due to poor maintenance. No further assistance was provided. The vehicle had yet to be repaired and remained in the possession of the dealer. The failure mileage was approximately 144,000.

Summary of Complaint

WHILE DRIVING THE CAR ON A COUNTY ROAD, WITH THE SPEED UNDER 40 MPH, AND FOLLOWING THE BEND IN THE ROAD TO LEAD TO GETTING ON THE HIGHWAY, THE CAR JERKED FORWARD AS IF I HIT SOMETHING. AS I CONTINUED TO DRIVE, THE CAR WAS MAKING LOUD CLINKING SOUNDS AND WAS JERKING IN MOTION. NO WARNING LIGHTS WENT ON. WHILE ATTEMPTING TO CONTINUE TO DRIVE, CLANGING NOISES COULD BE HEARD AND THE CAR CONTINUED TO JERK FORWARD. THE CAR WAS UNABLE TO BE DRIVEN. AFTER HAVING IT TOWED TO MY MECHANIC, IT WAS DETERMINE THE PROBLEM WAS THE TRANSFER CASE. THE SPLINES BETWEEN THE TRANSMISSION AND TRANSFER CASE HAD BEEN EATEN AWAY BY RUST. THE SEAL HAD NOT KEPT WATER OUT AS IT WAS DESIGNED TO DO. A NEW TRANSFER CASE WAS ORDERED AS WELL AS A NEW TRANSMISSION. THE REPLACEMENT TRANSFER CASE HAD SHOWN SIGNS OF THE SAME ISSUES WITH THE SPLINES. ANOTHER (2ND ONE) TRANSFER CASE HAD TO BE ORDERED. I HAD PURCHASED THIS CAR IN FEBRUARY 2019 USED. THE CAR HAD A CLEAN TITLE, NO ACCIDENTS AND WAS SERVICED REGULARLY. WITHIN 1 YEAR, I HAD TO PAY OUT $5,000.00 TO REPLACE TRANSFER CASE AND TRANSMISSION. I LOST THE USE OF MY CAR FOR OVER 3 WEEKS (DUE TO THE PROBLEMS WITH GETTING A TRANSFER CASE THAT WAS GOOD). WHEN YOU GOOGLE THIS ISSUE, MANY PEOPLE HAVE HAD SIMILAR ISSUES.

Summary of Complaint

BRAKES REALLY HARD TO PRESS. WIFE THOUGHT CAR WASN'T GOING TO STOP AND SHE WAS GOING TO REAR END CAR IN FRONT OF HER. SOMETIMES BRAKE PEDAL WOULD FEEL SPONGY. OVER LAST MONTH THERE WAS AN INTERMITTENT STRANGE NOISE SOMETIMES WHEN CAR WAS STARTED. MAZDA DEALERSHIP IDENTIFIED THE PROBLEM TO BE A DEFECTIVE BRAKE BOOSTER. I FOUND THAT NHTSA OPENED INVESTIGATION ON CX-9 BRAKE ISSUES PREVIOUSLY AND MAZDA IDENTIFIED PROBLEM TO BE BRAKE BOOSTER. MAZDA EXTENDED THE WARRANTY TO 7 YEARS OR 90,000 MILES AND NHTSA CLOSED INVESTIGATION. OUR BRAKE BOOSTER FAILED AT 9 YEARS WITH 79,388 MILES ON THE CAR. FROM WHAT I HAVE READ THE LIFE EXPECTANCY OF A BRAKE BOOSTER IS THE LIFE OF THE CAR. MAZDA NEVER INFORMED US ABOUT THIS POSSIBLE PROBLEM. OUR FAMILY COULD HAVE BEEN SERIOUSLY INJURED OR KILLED DUE TO THIS DEFECT. WHY DID THE NHTSA ACCEPT AN EXTENDED WARRANTY AS A SOLUTION?

Summary of Complaint

THE TRANSFER CASE IN OUR 2011 MAZDA CX-9 FAILED AT 130,000 MILES. I UNDERSTAND THAT MAZDA KNOW ABOUT A DEFECT AS TO THE PROXIMITY OF THE TRANSFER CASE TO THE EXHAUST. THE HEATED TRANSFER CASE LUBRICANT BECOME SLUDGE-LIKE AND CAUSES THE CASE TO FAIL ALSO AFFECTING THE TRANSMISSION SPLINES. THE HEATED LUBRICANT ESCAPED AND DRIPS ON THE EXHAUST AND FILLS THE VEHICLE WITH A TOXIC SMELLING GAS AND APPARENTLY CAN LIGHT ON FIRE. THE TRANSFER CASE FAILED WHILE DRIVING MAKING GETTING OUT OF TRAFFIC DIFFICULT. MAZDA ISSUED A BULLETIN IN 2014 EXTENDING THE WARRANTY TO 7 YEARS OR 90,000 MILES BUT DIDN'T INFORM ANY OF THE CUSTOMERS OF THIS PROBLEM. THERE IS NO SERVICE SCHEDULE FOR THE TRANSFER CASE AS RECOMMENDED BY MAZDA. OR ANY WAY I UNDERSTAND TO CHANGE THE LUBRICANT IN THE TRANSFER CASE. WITHOUT INFORMING US OF THE ISSUE OR HAVING RECOMMENDED ANY PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE MAZA CAUSED A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION FOR MY FAMILY. I HAVE CONTACTED MAZDA USA AND THEY HAVE BEEN UNHELPFUL.

I STARTED NOTICING IT WAS TAKING A LONG DISTANCE FOR MY VEHICLE TO COME TO A STOP. I TOOK IT TO MY MECHANIC. WE TOOK IT FOR A TEST DRIVE AND HE CONFIRMED THERE WAS A PROBLEM WITH THE POWER BRAKE BOOSTER. WHEN HE WAS DRIVING, IF HE PRESSED ON THE BRAKE PEDAL HARD, HE COULD MAKE THE CAR HAVE A LONG "BEEP" SOUND. OTHERWISE, HE, TOO, NOTICED THE LONG DISTANCE REQUIRED FOR THE CAR TO STOP.

Summary of Complaint

OUR VEHICLE HAS WATER DRAINS OR "WEEP" LINES FOR THE SUNROOF. WE RECENTLY HAD THE ELECTRICAL SYSTEM STOP/START, DASH LIGHTS REMAIN ON CONSTANTLY AFTER SITTING IN THE DRIVEWAY DURING THE RAIN. WE LEARNED THAT IF THE DRAINS BECOME BLOCKED THAT WATER LEAKS INTO THE CABIN DIRECTLY ONTO THE BODY CONTROL MODULE (BCM). BECAUSE THE BCM IS NOT IN A SEALED OR WATER-PROOF CASE, YET IS SOAKED IN THESE CONDITIONS, THE VEHICLE IS SUBJECT TO ELECTRICAL FAILURE AS A RESULT. REPLACING THE BCM COSTS ABOUT $1,000. WHEN WE STARTED THE CAR THE DASH LIGHTS THAT WARN OF AN ISSUE WITH MANY OF THE VEHICLES SAFETY SYSTEMS REMAINED ON. OTHERS WENT OFF AND SOFT OF FLASHED. WE COULD NOT DETERMINE IF THERE WAS REALLY AN ISSUE WITH ALL OF THE COMPONENTS FLASHING ON THE DASH SO WE DID NOT WANT TO DRIVE IT FOR FEAR OF AN ACCIDENT. OUR VEHICLE WAS STATIONARY (THANK GOD). WE WAITED FOR A WHILE AND WERE ABLE TO LEAVE FOR HOME, BUT THIS CONDITION IS CLEARLY A HUGE SAFETY RISK.

Summary of Complaint

THE VEHICLE WAS IDENTIFIED AT THE DEALERSHIP AS HAVING A LEAKING TRANSFER CASE THAT NEEDED TO BE REPLACED. DURING THIS REPLACEMENT THE TRANSMISSION SPLINES WERE ALSO NOTED TO BE DAMAGED DUE TO THE FAULTY TRANSFER CASE. THEREFORE BOTH THE TRANSFER CASE AND TRANSMISSION NEEDED TO BE REPLACED AT MY EXPENSE.

Summary of Complaint

I WAS APPROACHING AN INTERSECTION WHERE I NEEDED TO STOP WITH MY CHILDREN IN THE CAR, I WENT TO HIT MY BRAKE PEDAL AND IT WAS STUCK IN THE UP POSITION AND I COULDN'T STOP, I HAD TO QUICKLY TURN MY WHEEL TO HIT THE SHOULDER OF THE ROAD TO SLOW DOWN AND TO AVOID BEING HIT IN THE INTERSECTION. THE CAR BRAKE THEN EVENTUALLY RELEASED AFTER HEARING A HISSING NOISE AND IT SLOWLY GOING INTO THE DOWN POSITION. WHEN I HAD A MECHANIC LOOK AT IT, HE EXPLAINED THAT IT CLEARLY IS A FAILURE OF THE BRAKE BOOSTER. WE RESEARCHED IT AND FOUND THAT SIMILAR ISSUES HAPPENED WITH MY MAKE AND MODEL IN THE PAST BUT MAZDA DOES NOT WANT TO HONOR THE DEFECT AS ITS SPECIAL SERVICE CALL ON IT ENDED IN 2015.

Summary of Complaint

UNINFORMED ABOUT THE 2011 MAZDA CX9 BRAKE PROBLEM WHICH DID NOT SHOW UP UNTIL 8-22-2018, I WAS INFORMED THAT WHILE MAZDA EXTENDED THEIR WARRANTY, THE WARRANTY HAD ENDED IN 4-2018 OR WHEN THE CAR HAD 90,000 MILES LOGGED. (MY CAR IS AT 91,244 MILES.) THE CAR IS UNSAFE TO DRIVE, THE BRAKES ARE SUDDENLY NOT WORKING, AND THIS IS A DOCUMENTED PROBLEM WITH MY MAKE, MODEL, AND YEAR. THERE IS NO MORE IMPORTANT SAFETY FEATURE IN YOUR CAR THAN THE BRAKES. YES, TEENAGE DRIVERS ' THAT'S EVEN MORE IMPORTANT THAN BLUETOOTH CONNECTIVITY. UNFORTUNATELY, OWNERS OF THE 2010-2011 CX-9 HAVE BEEN HAVING PROBLEMS BRINGING THEIR CAR TO A STOP. THE BRAKE SYMPTOMS CX-9 OWNERS, ESPECIALLY THOSE IN HOTTER CLIMATES, HAVE BEEN TELLING HARROWING TALES OF BRAKE PROBLEMS CENTERED AROUND: THE BRAKES BECAME HARD TO PUSH, THERE WAS A HISSING NOISE FROM THE PEDAL AND THE CAR WOULD NOT STOP UNTIL THE BRAKE PETAL WAS PUMPED.
