Consumer Location: EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ
VIN: JM3TB3CV5C0****

Summary of Complaint

Brake booster failure caused a near miss. Wife driving with 5 year old daughter in the vehicle. The stopping force required on the brake pedal became excessive and the stopping (safe braking) distance significantly increased causing emotional distress. My understanding is this part (brake booster) has a defective diaphragm that deteriorates over time. The extended warranty created for this particular issue did not cover the vehicle at the time of the failure.

VIN: JM3TB2DA1C0****

Summary of Complaint

I WAS ON THE INTERSTATE (DRIVING 60+MPH) AND THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME SLAMMED ON THEIR BRAKES FOR AN UNKNOWN REASON. I TRIED TO USE MY BRAKES BUT THEY WERE ROCK HARD AND THE PEDAL WOULDN'T DEPRESS. I WAS FORCED TO SWERVE TO THE RIGHT, STILL HAVING NO BRAKES, AND BARELY MADE IT OVER 3 LANES TO THE SHOULDER OF THE ROAD. IN DOING SO, I CAUSED TOTAL CHAOS AROUND ME, CAUSED A TRACTOR TRAILER TO START TO JACKKNIFE, WHICH CAUSED A CHAIN REACTION BEHIND HIM. IT WAS A TOTAL MIRACLE THAT NO ACCIDENTS WERE CAUSED AND NO ONE WAS KILLED. I CALLED MY MECHANIC FROM THE SIDE OF THE ROAD, HYSTERICAL. HE LOOKED IN HIS DATABASE AND FOUND THAT MAZDA HAD KNOWN ISSUES WITH THEIR POWER BRAKE BOOSTER. I SUBSEQUENTLY FOUND A LETTER FROM MAZDA INSTRUCTING OWNERS "IF YOUR VEHICLE IS FUNCTIONING PROPERLY, THERE IS NO NEED TO CONTACT YOUR DEALER." ARE YOU KIDDING ME???? MY BRAKES WERE FINE UNTIL THEY WEREN'T, THEN I NARROWLY AVOIDED BEING KILLED OR CAUSING THE DEATH OF ANOTHER BECAUSE APPARENTLY MAZDA'S BODY COUNT WASN'T HIGH ENOUGH TO ISSUE A RECALL.

Summary of Complaint

MY WIFE WAS DRIVING DOWN A CITY STREET WHEN THE CAR COMPLETELY SHUT DOWN AND LOST ALL POWER. LUCKILY, SHE WAS ABLE TO STOP WITHOUT CAUSING AN ACCIDENT. WE HAD CAR TOWED TO AN INDEPENDENT MECHANIC. AFTER INSPECTION WE WERE TOLD THE WATER PUMP HAD FAILED CAUSING COOLANT TO LEAK INTO THE ENGINE AND CAUSED COMPLETE ENGINE FAILURE. WE WERE QUOTED $8K-$10K TO REPLACE THE ENGINE. THE 2012 MAZDA CX-9 ONLY HAD 99K MILES, BUT UNFORTUNATELY OUR EXTENDED WARRANTY EXPIRED A FEW YEARS AGO, SO MAZDA WAS OF NO HELP. WE WERE LEFT TO JUNK OUR CAR FOR A FRACTION OF WHAT IT'S VALUE SHOULD HAVE BEEN. APPARENTLY THIS IS A KNOWN ISSUE AND WE WILL BE JOINING THE CURRENT CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST MAZDA.
