Recall Alert: 2007-2014 Mazda CX-9

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 193,000 model-year 2007-14 Mazda CX-9 SUVs manufactured between Oct. 24, 2006, and Dec. 28, 2013

The Problem: The front suspension ball joints may corrode from water leaking into the filter. Over time, this corrosion may result in the front lower control arm separating from the ball joint, causing a loss of steering control and increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will replace both the left and right lower control arms for free.

What Owners Should Do: Mazda will begin sending owners interim notifications in early September. When the necessary parts become available, owners will receive a second notification, beginning with the model-year 2007-09 vehicles registered in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, D.C., West Virginia and Wisconsin. The second phase will cover model-year 2010-14 vehicles in those same states. Owners can call the automaker at 800-222-5500, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
