- 2016 CX-9 GT
Fair enough. Taking just 2016-2018 brings the total down to 69,681 sold. Assuming 2000 engines still, that’s only 2.9%. Doubling that is close to 6% which is for sure more alarming than 1.3%, but you are still far more likely to have a fine engine than one that needs to be replaced. I still think that FB guy is full of crap. I would also be interested to see why engines are failing. IF there are 1000 coming to the US, how many of those are due to poor maintenance? I have met far too many people that don’t know their oil change intervals and ignore the maintenance reminders. I don’t think we can assume that every replacement engine was due to manufacturer defectI agree that it is too early to press the panic button. As far as stats goes however, i wouldn’t include models years past 2018 for a good representation. The 2019 and younger are unlikely to have enough mileage on them for this issue to come up in significant numbers. Plus the pandemic in my opinion is slowing the down the rate of issues. I wish i would be driving my 2018 more (like I usually do) so that normal issues would come while still under the initial warranty. At this rate of driving, items normally dealt with under warranty will break a year or two later when I am out of it.
