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.

I WENT FROM HAVING BRAKES TO HAVING TO PUSH THE BRAKE TO THE FLOOR, WHICH STILL DID NOT STOP THE CAR, ALL IN THE SAME DAY. I WAS LUCKY NOT TO WRECK BUT COULD NOT STOP FOR STOP SIGNS OR STOP LIGHTS ALL WHILE MY 22 MONTH OLD WAS IN THE VEHICLE.

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?
