what exactly was your problem? I have a 2009 CX9 and very very intermittently when I make a tight left turn on a incline, I hear a metallic/grinding noise which my personal mechanic told me was the ABS. But it is scary and there's no reason for it. Mazda says my ABS checked out fine on the computer and that's it's probably rust on an unused part of the rotor - NOT!
What is this January bulletin and how do I get a copy of it?
Thanks so much.
#393 of 547 Help! Problem with new car
Apr 01, 2011 (5:17 pm)
I recently got a new 2011 CX9 GT with no options (so no back-up camera). I needed the back-up camera, and my dealer said he could install an aftermarket one that would display in the rearview mirror. In the process, he broke off the rain/headlight sensor and eliminated the homelink capability.
My questions are:
1. Is there an aftermarket rearview mirror with camera display that will work with the rain/light sensor (and hopefully homelink)?
2. What does the dealer need to do to fix the problem? He claims he is going to fix it, but seems totally clueless so I am a bit worried he is going to do more damage in the process.

I am not familiar with backup cameras. But for your question #2, just let the dealer fix it. He is obliged to fix any damage he caused so just let him do it. when he is finished either it works or it doesn't. My bet is that it will work.
#396 of 547 CX9 lurches forward in park
Apr 08, 2011 (3:16 pm)
Just picked-up my new CX9 GT AWD from the dealer, and already noticed a problem. When I put the car in park (from drive) and take my foot off the brake the car "lurches" forward. It moves a noticeable amount ~6 inches before the car "catches" and stops.
If I put on the parking brake with my foot on the brake then it doesn't move, but it lurches forward when I take off the parking brake.
This is on a fairly slight incline (not a steep hill), and I have never noticed this with any another car parking on the same street.
Any idea on the problem? Thanks!

I am having the same issue with my 2010 CX9 touring. Its under warranty, the dealer is having a hard time diagnosing the problem. I believe they are ordering a replacement throttle assembly in an attempt to resolve the issue. Its probably hard to diagnose because there is no dash indicator for the computer to read, i'm not sure if its a sensor or what.
The Dealer reports that they "flashed" the computer X2 and installed an update, this reduced the amount of "surge" in the idle while the car is in drive, however the condition still exists.
They've ordered the parts, I'll keep you posted if it resolves the issue. I've been scowering the web to see if anyone else is seeing this issue, you were the first instance I've found that is similar.

jschwa - I picked up a new 2011 CX-9 Grand Touring on April 2 and am experiencing a very similar problem--the car occassionally lurches forward when shifting from park into either drive or reverse; the problem is worse when the car is on an incline. Very odd indeed; I would be interested in hearing what the service center tells you.

Is your foot on the brake when shifting from park to either gear?

Yes; my foot has been on the brake when shifting from park.

We have 2009 and have the same issues. We are even having issues with the piping rubbing away, kind of looks like its been rubbed by a course piece of sand paper. We don't even carry things in the seats, only us. We took to the dealership and they had the Area Rep look at it. The Area Rep claims it is normal wear and tear. Never heard or seen something like this before. We even sent letters to Mazda main offices for help to understand why and the response we get is that is normal.
Hope you get better answers than we did.
