Mazda Australia Pty Ltd — Mazda MX-5 (ND) Automatic MY2015-2019

Identifying features

VIN (Vehicle identification number)
See attached VIN list

What are the defects?

The Transmission Control Module (TCM) may incorrectly interpret an electrical signal from the gear selector lever and this has the potential to cause the automatic transmission to downshift unexpectedly, causing an abrupt wheel speed reduction.

What are the hazards?

If this occurs, this may affect the stability of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a loss of vehicle control and potentially resulting in an accident. This may cause injury to occupants of the vehicle and other road users.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by Mazda Australia. Consumers will be advised to present their vehicle to their nearest or preferred Mazda dealer to reprogram the TCM with revised software.

Consumers who require further information should contact Mazda Customer Support on 1800 034 411 or email
