FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is a vehicle recall?
A vehicle recall occurs when Mazda Australia determines that one of our models has a safety-related defect or does not comply with a federal safety standard.
What is the reason for this recall?
The recall has been launched as part of a global Takata airbag recall campaign involving multiple manufacturers. The airbag inflator/inflators may have been exposed to moisture absorption over time, causing degradation of the inflator propellant. In the event of a collision, the inflator may rupture and cause the airbag to deploy abnormally, increasing the risk of injury to the occupant.
Is my vehicle fitted with a Takata 'Alpha' airbag?
A small number of vehicles imported into Australia are fitted with Takata 'Alpha' airbags. Customers with vehicles fitted with Takata Alpha Airbags need to take immediate steps to have their airbags replaced Alpha bags may present a higher risk subset of the Takata bags being recalled.
It is critical that owners of cars with alpha airbags installed take immediate steps to have the airbags replaced because of the risk that injury or death could occur if the airbag misdeploys. All other customers whose vehicles are on the recall list are urged to arrange for the replacement of the Takata airbags in their vehicles as soon as possible due to the safety risks involved in the use of these vehicles.
Customers should call their local dealer to arrange a replacement airbag.
