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.

Recalls on your Mazda must be performed by a Mazda dealership. Mazda will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in July, 2016. If you do receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Mazda dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with. The Mazda recall number is 9516E.

The heated seats are made up of wiring, switches, and the element, which is the part that gets hot in order to heat the seat. Mazda has found that there is a possibility for the seat heater circuit to overheat and cause damage to the seat cushion and a risk of fire.

We at RepairPal have designated this a medium priority recall; this would change to high if any problems are noted with the seat heaters. Please contact your Mazda dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
