Great vehicle until the brake issues hit

Edmunds.com logo Edmunds.com 5/12/2015 jusride

We bought our 2008 CX-9 Grand Touring new in 2009. It's been a great vehicle, although it does go through tires (not alignment caused). No issues to report until the brakes went out Saturday. No warning, driving down the road and no brakes. The only thing that saved us was light traffic on a early Saturday morning. If this would've been during the work week a severe accident would've happened. There is a factory "recall" on the brake booster even though the defective item is the brake master cylinder. This was defective from the factory and slowing leaks into the brake booster until they both fail.

Favorite Feature : Comfort and carrying capacity

Suggested Improvement : Better gas mileage, fix the defective brake master cylinder - search cx-9 brake problems and go to the NHTSA site regarding the 2008 CX-9 for more info. Sensitive tire sensors...Mazda's fix? Give me a tire pressure gauge to keep in the car...really?

Average Rating : 3.875
