Mazda Australia Pty Ltd — Mazda6 (GG/GY) & RX-8 (FE)
What are the defects?
Due to inappropriate production/storage of the propellant in the inflator of the passenger-side airbag, the density of the propellant may be insufficient. As a result, the propellant may ignite abnormally at the time of airbag deployment, which may result in extremely high inner pressure of the inflator and a rupture of the inflator case.
What are the hazards?
If the case ruptured, the airbag might not deploy as designed and therefore may not reduce injury to a passenger, or fractured parts might fly apart and cause injury to a passenger.
What should consumers do?
Mazda Australia will contact all affected customers by mail, advising them of the next steps. Consumers who require further information should contact Mazda Customer Support on 1800 034 411.
