Default new to site and Mazda- thinking about buying CX-9


I am thinking about buying a CX-9 for family car and wanted to get some feedback about the more-costly-than-usual repair issues I need to consider before purchasing. I am pretty familiar with Hondas, but not Mazda. I am looking at 2014-2016 models. i see some posts about water pump/timing chain issues, but anything else I should be prepared for ? Engine or tranny problems/quirks ?

Thanks for any help

I've only heard of 1 case of a water pump issue & never any timing chain issues.

Transfer Case issues on the AWD versions are a known issue.

Brake shudder is common.

The 2016 is the all new version. I really like mine. The older version had a few problems.
