Mazda Air Bag Recall

Mazda Air Bag Recall

This morning I have contacted my main Mazda dealer regarding the news this morning stating that Japanese car manufacturers (Toyota, Honda & Mazda) are recalling cars for a possible Air bag fault.

Whilst Toyota and Honda seem to be badly affected, there is only a total of 45,000 Mazda cars worldwide that are suspect.
The information I received tells me that Mazda will be contacting owners if their car is amongst these. The dealer had no indication at the time what models were affected but I have asked them to contact me when the relevant information is available so that I might pass it on to you.

If you are seriously worried then I would suggest that you contact your dealer for further information should they have it.

I shall keep this thread up to date as and when I receive further clarification.

The latest 14:15  12/April/ 2013  from my dealership is it only affects Mazda 6 models from 2002-2006
Mazda will be sending out letters to all owners of these cars, but of course with the age factor, it is quite possible that the car will have been sold on by now.
I asked if in that case Mazda will be going through DVLA to inform current owners, but I was not able to get verification of this.

From what i believe this only affects up to 1800 mazda 6's in the uk, passenger airbags. You will be contacted by DVLA if this affects you.
