2009 Mazda Mazda6 Recalls
Three screws attach each door latch, over time these screws can loosen. If the latch screws loosen excessively the door latch may not engage correctly, the door could open unexpectedly while the vehicle is in motion, increasing the risk personal injury or an accident. Dealers will add a thread locking compound and re-torque the latch mounting bolts to correct this concern.
A spider web can cause a restriction in the EVAP canister vent line. This can result in undue stress on the fuel tank during the vapor purge function of the EVAP system. This stress could crack the fuel tank, resulting in a leak. Any fuel leak increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect and clean the vent line and install a spring to keep spiders from entering the line. This recall is expected to begin on March 25, 2011. The Mazda recall number is 6211B.
Mazda is recalling 2009 Mazda 6 models due to sticking outer door handles, which may prevent the door from latching. This may allow the door to open while the vehicle is in motion. If an occupant is not wearing a seat belt, he or she may be ejected from the vehicle, resulting in injury or death. Dealers will inspect and replace the handles free of charge.
