Mazda North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2009-2010 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured February 4, 2008, to December 3, 2009. The protective coating may not have been properly applied to the air bag control unit (ACU) 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, however parts are not currently available. Mazda will send interim notifications to owners beginning October 3, 2016 and will mail a second notice when remedy parts are available. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500.
