About the Mazda CX-9 SUV Recall

After 16 complaints, Mazda has recalled over 193,000 CX-9 SUVs manufactured from 2007-2014.

While no injuries or deaths have been reported, the recall is due to the rusting of ball joints caused by water leakage. Once rusted, the ball joint can potentially separate from the suspension unit. The risk of the product rusting and detaching could result in loss of steering control.

While parts are still being manufactured for replacement, SUV's registered in states that have heavier winter weather will be replaced first.

Those states include: Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Washington D.C.

Issue Discovered in 2012

According to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the issue was initially discovered by Mazda in 2012. The issue was fixed by January 2014, but Mazda opted to not issue a recall.

NHTSA has launched in investigation of its own following the complaints.
