Mazda Mazda6 Recalls & Reliability

Recalls

There have been 2 safety recalls issued from NHTSA.

TIRES:PRESSURE MONITORING AND REGULATING SYSTEMSRecall Date: 10/26/2014
  • Summary: Mazda North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured October 25, 2012, to October 10, 2014. If the pressures of four of the tires on an affected vehicle gradually drop at the same time, the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) may not warn the driver of the drop in pressure. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 138, "Tire Pressure Monitoring System."
  • Potential Number of Units Affected: 99711
  • Consequence: A vehicle that is driven with under inflated tires may experience a sudden tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.
  • Remedy: Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will update the TPMS software, free of charge. The recall began on December 10, 2014. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500.
  • Dates of Manufacture OCT 24, 2012 to OCT 09, 2014
  • Manufacturer Recall Number: 8014J
  • NHTSA Campaign ID: 14V675000
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
