For the second time since 2011, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA) is investigating certain Mazda vehicles with brake problems. Once again, though, it is the Mazda CX-9 that is put under the microscope, after the 2008 CX-9 was found to have defects in its brake master cylinder.
It may take a few months before the NHSTA concludes its investigations, but this news should be taken as a reminder of how important and fragile a vehicle’s brake system can be. If there is anything amiss with their brake systems, vehicle owners are advised to seek out the assistance of reputable auto repair centers for prompt and thorough vehicle inspections.
More importantly, vehicle owners should see to it that the people inspecting their vehicles have the appropriate qualifications for the job. Specifically, it would be wise to choose an auto mechanic from Washington, DC who is an ASE (Automotive Service Excellence) Certified Master Technician.
