Recall
« on: September 15, 2021, 09:56:07 PM »
I just got my car's first recall notification - not bad for a 15+ year old car.  This appears to be coming out of the airbag issues from Japan - this time for earlier Mazda3 gen-1 cars:

The big M Mazda logo on the steering wheel is 'at risk' from shattering if the airbag deploys, so presumably the centre part of the steering wheel (not sure about the airbag) will be replaced FOC.

Anyone else here affected?

Just had the changeover done this morning - centre part of the steering wheel, including the airbag, now replaced.  Took just an hour to do.
