Mazda CX-9 crossovers are being investigated for a faulty breaking system, according to news reports .
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it is investigating the braking effectiveness of 2008 Mazda CX-9 crossovers.
The investigation could lead to a future recall.
“The NHTSA probe will examine reports that leaking brake fluid could degrade braking effectiveness of approximately 37,000 Mazda CX-9s. NHTSA says no injuries or accidents have been reported in connection with the CX-9’s braking system, but the Agency has released this statement: ‘When brake fluid leaks into the vacuum booster the driver can experience reduced brake effectiveness which can result in extended stopping distance,'” according to news reports.
So far, Mazda has received a “high number” of warranty claims and reports related to the vehicle’s braking system, according to NHTSA.
As an Orangeburg personal injury attorney , I hope this problem can be fixed before any accidents or injuries are reported. I’m glad Mazda and NHTSA are taking these reports seriously.
While we don’t handle this kind of recall we feel that it’s important to educate the community to help protect their health and safety. If you have been injured by a recalled product, you might wish to contact an Orangeburg personal injury lawyer who can help.
