2014 Mazda Mazda6 Recalls & Reliability

Recalls

There have been 2 safety recalls issued from NHTSA.

FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:STORAGE:TANK ASSEMBLYRecall Date: 04/02/2014
  • Summary: Mazda North America Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2014 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured October 25, 2012, through May 9, 2013. In the affected vehicles, it is possible to fill the fuel tank beyond its rated capacity.
  • Potential Number of Units Affected: 19000
  • Consequence: If the tank is overfilled, gas may flow into the charcoal canister (an evaporative emissions component) and possibly leak from the canister's external vent, increasing the risk of a fire.
  • Remedy: Mazda will notify owners and dealers will inspect and add an adapter to the shut off valve in the fuel tank and also inspect the charcoal canister for the presence of gasoline, replacing it as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on May 19, 2014. Owners may contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 7414D.
  • Dates of Manufacture OCT 24, 2012 to MAY 08, 2013
  • Manufacturer Recall Number: 7414D
  • NHTSA Campaign ID: 14V170000
ELECTRICAL SYSTEM:ALTERNATOR/GENERATOR/REGULATORRecall Date: 04/02/2014
  • Summary: Mazda North America Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2014 Mazda3 vehicles manufactured June 12, 2013, through December 18, 2013, and model year 2014-2015 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured May 20, 2013, through December 4, 2013, and both equipped with a 2.5L engine and a regenerative engine braking system. When driving the affected vehicles in heavy rain or in deep puddles, the alternator belt may slip causing the Power Control module (PCM) to incorrectly assume failure of the charging system.
  • Potential Number of Units Affected: 5700
  • Consequence: Once the PCM assumes that the charging system has failed, the vehicle will stop charging and could result in poor acceleration, loss of steering assist and windshield wiper operation, and a possible engine stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
  • Remedy: Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the PCM with updated software, free of charge. The recall began on May 19, 2014. Owners may contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 7314D.
  • Dates of Manufacture MAY 19, 2013 to DEC 03, 2013
  • Manufacturer Recall Number: 7314D
  • NHTSA Campaign ID: 14V173000
