2012 Mazda CX-7 Recalls
The passenger frontal air bag assembly is deployed by an inflator which contains propellant that makes the air bag deploy. This propellant may degrade over time, especially when exposed to humidity and temperature cycling. As a result, the inflator may rupture on deployment, which can send metal shrapnel through the air bag, striking vehicle occupants. This could result in serious injury or death.
The front lower control arms may allow salt contaminated water used to clear roads in cold weather states into the front suspension ball joint fittings. This could cause the ball joints to corrode and separate from the vehicle, which could cause loss of vehicle control. This would increase risk of an accident.
