What are the defects?
Excessive internal pressure could potentially be created in the inflator installed in the front driver air bag at the time of air bag deployment. As a result, the body of the inflator may rupture upon deployment.
What are the hazards?
The ruptured inflator may create metallic fragments that could contact an occupant, increasing the risk of injury.
What should consumers do?
Mazda Australia will contact all affected customers by mail as soon as parts become available to present their vehicle to their preferred Mazda Dealer for the replacement of the Driver Side airbag inflator at No Charge. Consumers who require further information should contact Mazda Customer Support on 1800 034 411.
