What are the defects?
The lower nut and bolt that secures the front suspension strut to the steering knuckle may not have been tightened with sufficient torque. This may cause the nut to loosen and fall off, affecting one or both sides of the front suspension.
What are the hazards?
In a worst case scenario, the front shock absorber and steering knuckle may separate, causing a loss of steering control.
What should consumers do?
Mazda Australia will contact all affected customers by mail to present their vehicle to their preferred Mazda dealer to have the tension of the affected nuts/bolts checked. If the nut/bolt torque does not meet the correct specification, both bolts and nuts that secure the front suspension strut to the steering knuckle will be replaced with new ones and tensioned to the correct torque at no charge. Consumers who require further information should contact Mazda Customer Support on 1800 034 411.
