What are the defects?
Airbag inflator: if an affected vehicle is involved in an accident triggering the airbag, the metal inflator housing explodes / ruptures under too much internal pressure.
What are the hazards?
In the event that a defective airbag inflator ruptures, metal fragments propel out through the airbag cushion towards the vehicle occupants causing serious injury or fatality.
What should consumers do?
Owners of affected vehicles should contact their local Mazda dealership or Mazda Australia’s head office directly via the website at https://www.mazda.com.au/, phone 1800 034 411 Monday to Friday 9.30am - 5pm (EST or AEST) or email email@example.com to arrange for a replacement airbag inflator free of charge. It is critical that owners of cars with alpha airbags installed take immediate steps to have the airbags replaced because of the significant risk of injury or death involved in using cars with these airbags.
