Yeah very odd , in my case they asked me if I want to replace them . I said yes because why not , new is new regardless the condition of the old one  :)

To be honest , if some Japanese engineer said that they have to be replaced , then they should , right ??

If they show any signs of getting worse take it back but they don't have any corrosion on them so I can see why they haven't.

I received a driver and vehicle standards agency/Mazda marked letter about it 2 weeks before my service was due. Came direct from Mazda UK head office apparently.

They obviously aren't in a hurry about it given I remember reading about it on here while I was on honeymoon last September and giving the struts a look over then.
