Body, Interior & Misc., June 19, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

This limited regional recall is for vehicles currently registered or first sold in Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and equipped with Takata-brand air bag inflators. Upon deployment the driver and/or passenger airbag inflator could rupture, increasing the risk of personal injury. Mazda dealers will replace the affected airbag inflator modules to correct this concern.

Body, Interior & Misc., September 24, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

For Models: Mazda Mazda6, Mazda RX-8

Body, Interior & Misc., April 11, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Airbags use a chemical reaction contained in an inflator module to create the pressure necessary to inflate the bags when deployment is required. These vehicles are being recalled because the front passenger airbag inflator may produce excessive internal pressure when deployed and as a result, the inflator module could rupture, causing metal fragments to strike vehicle occupants. Dealers will inspect and replace any defective passenger front airbag inflator module found.

Exhaust & Emissions, February 25, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

For Models: Mazda Mazda6

Body, Interior & Misc., February 13, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

For Models: Mazda Mazda6

Body, Interior & Misc., August 28, 2008

RepairPal Expert Overview:

On vehicles equipped with California emission systems, the protective coating on the exterior of the fuel tank may have been damaged during vehicle assembly, reducing corrosion resistance. Rusting could lead to perforation of the fuel tank, resulting in a fuel leak. Fuel leakage always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect the fuel tank and repair the coating or replace the tank as necessary. This recall is scheduled to begin on August 28, 2008. The Mazda recall number is 5008H.

For Models: Mazda Mazda6

Body, Interior & Misc., December 27, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

190 vehicles may have right and/or left rear seat belts that will not lock properly due to missing retaining pins on the housing. The locking mechanism can malfunction, increasing the risk of serious injury to the rear seat occupants in the event of a crash. Passengers should not sit on and child seats should not be used in the right or left rear seats until this recall has been completed. Dealers will inspect the rear seat belts and replace faulty retractors as required. This recall is expected to begin in December of 2004. The Mazda recall number is 2604L.

Engine, February 9, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The fuel sender unit may have been improperly installed in the fuel tank. As a result, a fuel leak may develop. Any fuel leak always increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect the top of the fuel tank, and if necessary, repair or replace it. The Mazda recall number is 1403L.

 

For Models: Mazda Mazda6

Brakes, July 14, 2003

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The float portion of the brake fluid level sensor can be forced of its guide rail during filling of the brake master cylinder reservoir. As a result, the low brake fluid warning indicator may not illuminate when the fluid level is low. As of this time, Mazda has not yet provided a remedy for this campaign. The Mazda recall number is 1203F.

For Models: Mazda MPV, Mazda Mazda6, Mazda Miata MX-5

Electrical & Lights, July 14, 2003

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The heat generated by a fog light bulb can cause the socket holder to be pushed rearward in the light casing. This, in combination with the normal vibration during vehicle operation, can cause the bulb holder to separate from the light casing. Should this occur, the bulb socket and harness can drop inside the bumper and possibly result in the bumper being burned by the hot bulb. Dealers will install a spring to prevent the socket holder from separating from the lamp case. The Mazda recall number is 1103F.
