MEC COMES DOWN HARD ON MAZDA
Citing a possible defect in the blower of front airbags, the Ministry of Economy and Commerce (MEC) recalled the Mazda 6 and Mazda BT-50 pickup models 2002-2007 last month. The National Car Company was also involved in the move.
The ministry said that the recall comes within the framework of ongoing coordination and follow-up by the ministry to ascertain the extent of car dealerships' commitment to follow up vehicles' defects and repair them to protect consumers' rights. The ministry further added that it will coordinate with the dealership to follow up maintenance and repair operations and will communicate with customers to ensure implementation of the procedures to fix defects.
MEC also urged all consumers to report any irregularities to the Consumer Protection Department, which receives complaints, suggestions and inquiries through its channels of communication.
