Mazda strongly encourages customers with vehicles affected by a recall to bring their vehicles to an authorized Mazda Dealer as soon as possible. All safety recall repairs are made free of charge.

The following information pertains to Recalls and Special Service Program (SSP) Recalls reported in or after the year 1999.

Mazda is committed to addressing the safety and concerns of its customers.

In certain vehicles with continued exposure to high levels of humidity over long periods, the driver and/or front passenger air bag inflator supplied by Takata could produce excessive internal pressure in the event of a crash where the front air bag is designed to deploy. The excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator housing to rupture with metal fragments, which may increase the risk of injury to the vehicle occupants.

If your vehicle is affected by this recall, Mazda encourages you to take immediate action to have your vehicle repaired—at no cost to you.

Frequently Asked Questions
In affected vehicles, continued exposure to high levels of absolute humidity may cause the driver’s and/or front passenger’s frontal air bag inflator to rupture and deploy abnormally in the event of a crash necessitating deployment of air bags. An inflator rupture could result in metal fragments striking the driver or other vehicle occupants, resulting in serious injury or death.
To date, Mazda has received two reports of driver injury during an air bag rupture in Mazda vehicles. Although there have been no fatalities in Mazda vehicles, nationally, nine deaths have been confirmed to date, and multiple injuries were reportedly related to the air bag inflators supplied by Takata to other auto manufacturers.
No. The criterion for the air bag deployment does not change. The air bags are designed to deploy in only certain types of collisions as explained in the Owner’s Manual.
No, the air bag indicator light does not alert you of this condition. If your air bag indicator light comes on, please bring your vehicle to an authorized Mazda Dealer for diagnosis.
Only the air bag inflator is under recall, and the replacement part addresses the original safety concerns from the recall.
A Mazda Dealer will replace the affected air bag inflator and remedy the issue free of charge. Please schedule an appointment with your nearest authorized Mazda Dealer for parts reservation and repair.
If you had an interim driver air bag inflator installed under any Takata safety recall, you will need to bring your vehicle to an authorized Mazda Dealer for the permanent repair, which will be done free of charge. The Takata recall is for abnormal air bag inflator deployment; therefore, reimbursement for air bag module replacement prior to the recall is not offered.
We understand your time is valuable. Scheduling an appointment ahead of time with an authorized Mazda Dealer will allow an opportunity to reserve the necessary replacement part for your vehicle and help minimize your wait time and inconvenience. A new air bag inflator will take approximately one hour to install.

Mazda is continuously working with the supplier to ensure that sufficient replacement parts are available for affected vehicles. Please use the VIN search function to check your recall status:

  • A “Recall Incomplete” status means a replacement part is available for your vehicle. Please schedule an appointment with an authorized Mazda Dealer for parts reservation and repair.
  • A “Recall Incomplete Remedy Not Yet Available” status means a replacement part is not yet available for your vehicle, please continue to check back as well as look for further communications from Mazda concerning parts availability.
  • A “Repair Completed” status means your recall has been completed. However, please continue to utilize the VIN search function to keep current on recalls for your vehicle.

Mazda sent notifications to affected owners on October 21, 2015, with instructions on how to arrange to have their vehicle inspected and/or repaired at a Mazda dealership at no cost.
