#409 of 547 Ongoing Brake Rotor problems 2007 CX-9
May 25, 2011 (11:00 am)
My 2007 CX-9 has 39,300 miles on it. I have had the brake rotors replaced 3 times. I just took it in again for rotor problems. The rotors are warped again! They tell me that they are no longer under warranty and they will need to be re-ground and not replaced.
The service guy told me it must be my driving style!
Mazda USA said there's nothing they can do because it's not a manufactures issue. Well it is an issue if the brake rotors only last 10,000 miles!
#410 of 547 Problem with auto door locking/ beeping
Jun 05, 2011 (2:49 pm)
I have a 2010 cx-9 GT. I got the auto door lock feature (the doors lock when you move away from the car with the smart key) turned on by the dealer few months ago. This feature has been working fine for few months now. However recently it stopped auto locking the doors. More annoyingly it keeps beeping for about 5-7 seconds after I try to lock the doors using the smart key ( as if it is warning me about something). Any idea what is going on?
#412 of 547 Mazda CX-9 ABS Brakes
Jun 19, 2011 (8:52 pm)
Periodically when turning a a hard right or left at a low speed my ABS brakes engage. This happens when driving on dry pavement. I did look around the internet and found that this has been a problem in past but when I took it to the dealer they looked at me like I had two heads. They want to test drive it and recreate the issue but when it is random occurance it is rather difficult to do. They have basically dropped the issue and shovelled me out the door. I am concerned it will only get worse.
#413 of 547 rear calipers
Jun 20, 2011 (10:07 am)
I am told I have to replace the rear calipers. There seems to be a squeal noise from the passenger side rear after the brakes get hot and especially when turning left. The dealer did work on the rear brakes under warranty, but perhaps did not lube the pads as the TSB requires.
Anyone else with this problem?

You will never know for sure unless you look at the pads and see whether or not they were lubricated.
#415 of 547 2010 Mazda CX9 Issues
Jun 21, 2011 (4:58 pm)
Have had our 2010 CX9 Touring model since January 2010. It attracts dings - I was on a stool drying the roof and front windon and leaned on the hood and dented it. Is Mazda using a thin gauge sheet metal to save weight. Just came back from vacation to the Outer Banks. On the hills in W.Va I noticed the brakes are starting to shudder and it just turned over 13,000 miles on the trip. Anyone else with these issues?
#416 of 547 2010 Mazda CX-9 wind noise
Jun 23, 2011 (5:31 pm)
I met with a district rep for the wind noise problem. He blew me off and said the wind noise is "normal". I drove the 2011 Mazda CX-9 that he was driving. Little to no wind noise. I drove 2 other 2010 CX-9's. Little to no wind noise. I drove my brothers Toyota Highlander. Little to no wind noise. How can Mazda think that anyone paying $30,000 for a new SUV would be happy with it when the wind noise coming through the front windows is so loud that it's still distracting even turning the radio way up, not to mention them fogging up to about 6 inches from the botton when it's cold out and the heat is on. I don't even like getting into it anymore. It's not fun to drive like that.

I just had my rear calipers replaced. Cleared up a squeal that was happening after brakes warmed up. Also it fixed the parking brake which used to have a long travel, now it is only a few inches.
My rear brakes had been updated by the dealer at 28,000 miles for the problems you mention (new shims and bracket and pads with rotors machined), but I don't think they lubricated the new pads when they installed them and did not adjust the parking brake.
#418 of 547 CX-9 Transmission Whine in 6th Gear
Jul 16, 2011 (6:59 pm)
My '09 CX9 has a noticeable whine when in 6th gear at mid 40's mph. The dealer says all CX-9 have a whine in 6th gear, and further that the transmission in this vehicle has been problem free. Fluid level, smell and color all check out. Do others have this whine, and if so was it addressed by Mazda if you pursued it? Thank you.
