Recall Alert : 2009-2010 Mazda6

RECALL Subject : Air Bag Control Unit may Fail due to Moisture , 1 INVESTIGATION(S)

Report Receipt Date: AUG 11, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V594000
Component(s): AIR BAGS
Potential Number of Units Affected: 41,918


Manufacturer: Mazda North American Operations


SUMMARY:

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.
CONSEQUENCE:
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.
REMEDY:
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. Mazda's number for this recall is 9816H.
