Mazda ProblemsStalling and low engine idle due to bypass air control valve failure

The noise may occur more frequently on higher mileage vehicles; Hydraulic valve lash adjusters may need to be replaced to correct this issue.

Mazda RecallsLift Gate Falls Unexpectedly
The rear lift gate support struts may corrode and fail, and the lift gate may fall from the open position, or not stay open as expected. Dealers will replace the lift gate supports free of charge to resolve the concern.
Water contaminated by salt that is found on roads treated in cold weather areas can cause corrosion within the lower control arms, which can result in the lower ball joints separating from the vehicle. Dealers will replace both front lower control arms free of charge to resolve the concern.
The air bag control unit (ACU) may not have been manufactured properly, resulting in moisture possibly damaging the unit. This could prevent the air bags from deploying as needed in an accident. Dealers will replace the ACU free of charge to resolve the concern.
