Mazda Recalls Cars for Air Bag Issues

Mazda Recalls Cars for Air Bag Issues Featured

Mazda North American Operations is recalling 41,918 model year 2009-10 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured Feb. 4, 2008 to Dec. 3, 2009.

The protective coating may not have been properly applied to the air bag control unit and, as a result, moisture may damage the unit causing it to malfunction.

Failure of the ACU would illuminate the air bag warning light and prevent the air bags from deploying in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury.

Mazda dealers will replace the ACU, free of charge. Parts, however, are not currently available. Mazda will send interim notifications to owners beginning Oct. 3 and will mail a second notice when remedy parts are available.

Mazda's number for this recall is 9816H.
