#19 of 24 Mazda CX-9 power lift metal failure
Jan 13, 2012 (12:26 pm)
I've had my 2008 CX-9 for four years, and the mount for the hatch back power lift ripped out of the sheet metal of the hatch. I use the power lift several times each day and the sheet metal seems to have fatigued and given out. We purchased an extended warranty from the dealership (when we bought the car), and it's with First Extended Service Corp. We were told that it covered everything that the original warranty covered, but are now being told this problem is not covered. Mazda estimates $2-3k for this repair!
Anyone else with this problem, and how did you resolve it?

FYI: Mazda decided to replace the hatchback for free!
#23 of 24 Lift gate motor stops 1/2 way up.

My 2007 Mazda auto lift gate motor runs halfway up then
stops with the 3 beeps. It will not lower the lift gate
at all and gives 3 beeps. The latching mechanism seems
to work fine. We have removed the motor module which seems
to work fine. The gearing seems to be working smoothly. It
seems to be an electronic issue. Any suggestions beyond
buying a new motor module?

The same issue happened to my 2010 CX9. I am going to take it in today to have it looked at. The power lift sheered off from the hatch. I hope I have the same luck as you did with Mazda replacing it for free. Do you have more info that you can give on your experience? Thanks
