SSP97 Liftgate/Trunk Lid Latch Replacement – 2014 Mazda CX-9 and 2015 Mazda MX-5

2014 CX-9 and 2015 MX-5 Liftgate/Trunk Lid Latch Replacement Special Service Program (SSP) 97 

Mazda Motor Corporation has decided to conduct a Special Service Program (SSP) on certain 2014 CX-9 and 2015 MX-5 vehicles.

On the affected vehicles, the strength of an internal part of the liftgate latch actuator or trunk lid latch actuator may be insufficient due to the usage of inappropriate material.

With repeated lock-unlock operation, the internal part may be broken, making the lock-unlock operation impossible. In the worst case, though the trunk lid can be opened using the key, the liftgate or trunk lid may not be opened electrically (by operating switch, transmitter, etc.).
