MAZDA CONDUCTS AIRBAG RECALL
MAZDA Southern Africa is conducting a repair procedure to replace the driver-side airbag and/or the passenger-side airbag inflator with an improved unit on the possibly affected vehicles.
This recall follows investigative recalls by Mazda in Japan and North America for three different types of Takata Corporation-manufactured inflators and although no cases of abnormal deployment or dangerous flaws have been found in any Mazda vehicles, the company had deemed an extended formal recall campaign necessary.
To date it has been recorded that about 19 000 units across three models are affected in South Africa.
These cars were produced from 2003 with VIN numbers starting with MM6DE, JM6GG and JMZSE and are the: • Mazda2, • Mazda6, and • RX-8.
Although the number of affected vehicles will be subject to further review and may change, Mazda SA urges all owners with possibly affected vehicles to contact the Mazda SA Dealer Network or the Mazda SA Customer Care Centre on 086 006 9700 or e-mail email@example.com.
