Recall Alert: Mazda6 sedans

Mazda is recalling nearly 100,000 Mazda6 sedans from the 2014 and 2015 model years. According to documents from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (PDF), some of those vehicles may suffer from a problem with their tire pressure monitoring systems, which could increase the risk of an accident.

11/26/2014

Quote:
The Mazda6's problem stems from a glitch in the tire pressure monitoring software that prevents the system from recognizing low tire pressure if all four tires lose pressure at the same rate. In other words, if a driver hits something in the road that causes one of her tires to lose pressure suddenly, the system should work fine. If, on the other hand, all four tires lose pressure gradually over time, at the same speed, the system might not work as intended.

Should that happen, it could put vehicle occupants in danger, as under-inflated tires are at greater risk of rupture.

The recall only affects Mazda6 models built between October 25, 2012 and October 10, 2014. In all, 99,711 U.S.-registered vehicles are included in the recall.

Mazda says that it will begin mailing recall notifications to owners no later than December 5, 2014. At that time, owners will be able to take their vehicles to a Mazda dealer, who will reprogram the tire pressure monitoring system software free of charge.

If you believe that you own one of the vehicles included in this recall and have further questions, you're encouraged to contact Mazda customer service at 800-222-5500. Alternately, you can contact NHTSA at 888-327-4236 and ask about safety campaign #14V675000.
