Mazda North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain 2003-2008 Mazda6, 2004-2005 MPV, 2004 RX-8, and 2006-2007 Mazdaspeed6 vehicles.

AVISO IMPORTANTE CAMPAÑA DE SEGURIDAD 2618F

REEMPLAZO DEL INFLADOR DE LA BOLSA DE AIRE FRONTAL – LADO DEL PASAJERO

PARA GARANTIZAR SU SEGURIDAD, SU VEHÍCULO DEBE REPARARSE POR SEGUNDA VEZ, PERO CON PIEZAS PERMANENTES, LA CAMPAÑA ANTERIOR UTILIZABA PIEZAS TEMPORERAS.

RECALL 2618F

 

Estimado cliente Mazda:

Este aviso se envía a usted de acuerdo a la Administración Nacional de Vehículos de Motor (NHTSA por sus siglas en inglés). NHTSA Campaign No. 19V-781

Mazda Motor Corporation ha determinado que existe un defecto relacionado a la seguridad en ciertos vehículos de motor Mazda6 2003-2008, MPV 2004-2005, Mazdaspeed6 2006-2007 y RX-8 2004.

Si recibió esta notificación, es porque su vehículo está incluido en esta Campaña de Seguridad.

Nota: La Campaña 2618F reemplaza una anterior en la que su vehículo tenía un inflador de la bolsa de aire frontal del lado del pasajero reemplazado. Estos infladores “similares/iguales” fueron un remedio temporero hasta que se dispusiera de una cantidad suficiente de piezas permanentes.  Su vehículo está incluido en el grupo que ahora deberá repararse por segunda vez, pero con un inflador de remedio permanente.

 

¿Cuál es el problema?

El defecto en su vehículo puede provocar lesiones graves o la muerte.  Una explosión del inflador podría provocar que fragmentos metálicos afilados golpeen al conductor u otros ocupantes del vehículo en caso de un accidente que provoque el despliegue de la bolsa de aire.  Es más probable que ocurra esta condición, si el vehículo tuvo una exposición continua a altos niveles de humedad absoluta.  Es extremadamente importante programar una cita para esta reparación lo antes posible para garantizar su seguridad y la de sus pasajeros.

 

¿Qué hará Mazda?

Protege lo que es importante para ti.

Su concesionario Mazda reemplazará gratuitamente el inflador de la bolsa de aire frontal del lado del pasajero por un inflador de remedio permanente. La reparación debe tardar menos de una hora en completarse; sin embargo, podría tomar más tiempo.

Mazda proporcionará gratuitamente transporte alterno cuando su vehículo se encuentre en un concesionario autorizado Mazda para una reparación de campaña.  Para ser elegible para el transporte alterno, debe programar una cita con cualquier concesionario autorizado Mazda para que puedan satisfacer sus necesidades.

 

¿Qué debe hacer?

Mazda está preocupado por su seguridad.  Por favor, programe una cita en cualquier concesionario autorizado Mazda para que el inflador de la bolsa de aire frontal del lado del pasajero sea reemplazado lo más pronto posible.

¿Aún tiene preguntas?

IMPORTANT SAFETY RECALL

To assure your safety, your vehicle must be repaired a SECOND time with permanent parts as the previous recall used temporary parts.

 

Frontal Passenger Side Air Bag lnflator Replacement Safety Recall 2618F

NHTSACampaign No.19V-781

 

This notice applies to your vehicle: 20xx Mazda Model name VIN

December 2019

Dear Mazda Owner:

This notice is sent to you in accordance with the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act.

Mazda Motor Corporation has decided that a defect which relates to motor vehicle safety exists in 2003-2008 Mazda6, 2004-2005 MPV, 2006-2007 Mazdaspeed6 and 2004 RX-8 vehicles. If you received this notice, your vehicle is included in this Safety Recall.

 

Note: Recall 2618F replaces a previous recall wherein your vehicle had a passenger air bag inflator replaced. These “like-for-like” inflators were a temporary remedy until a sufficient amount of permanent parts were available. Your vehicle is included in the population which will now need to be repaired a second time with a permanent remedy inflator.

 

What is the problem?

The defect in your vehicle could result in serious injury or death. An inflator explosion could result in sharp metal fragments striking the driver or other vehicle occupants in the event of a crash that causes the air bag to deploy. This condition is more likely to occur if the vehicle had continued exposure to high levels of absolute humidity. It is extremely important to schedule this repair as soon as possible to ensure your safety and the safety of your passengers.

 

What will Mazda do?

Mazda will provide alternate transportation free of charge when your vehicle is at an authorized Mazda dealership for a  recall repair. To be eligible for alternate transportation, you must schedule an appointment with any authorized Mazda dealer  so that they  can  discuss  and accommodate your needs.

 

What should you do? 

Mazda is concerned about your safety, and we urge you to contact any authorized Mazda dealer to schedule an appointment to have the frontal passenger side airbag inflator of your vehicle replaced as soon as possible. You can bring this notice to the dealer but it is not required.

Chronology of Defect updated on July 27, 2020.

Passenger side frontal air bag may explode on MY2003-2008 Mazda6,  MY2006-2007 Mazdaspeed6, MY2004-2005 MPV, MY2004 RX-8. NHTSA #19V781 (Mazda #2618F)

 

On May 3, 2016 : As a result of testing and analysis conducted by Takata and independent research organizations, NHTSA concluded that non-desiccated Takata PSAN (phase-stabilized ammonium nitrate) inflator would reach threshold level of degradation, causing the inflator to become dangerous. Therefore, NHTSA ordered Takata to file phased DIRs, in accordance with the schedule set forth in the amendment to the Consent Order.

 

From May 16, 2016 to October 16, 2018; Mazda has submitted relevant recalls in phased manner, as DIR#1 through DIR#4, in accordance with three DIRs Takata submitted to NHTSA.

 

In the middle of October, 2019: The replacement parts using non-PSAN based inflators have become available for all subject vehicles which have ever been replaced with non-desiccated PSAN inflators as an interim remedy to avoid an immediate safety risk posing air bag rupture, in the past recall, 13V130, 14V362, 15V869 and 14V773.

 

On October 28, 2019; Mazda hold the Quality Audit Committee and decided to conduct a recall covering the subject vehicles replaced with like-for-like parts, MY2003-2008 Mazda6, MY2006-2007 Mazdaspeed6, MY2004-2005 MPV and MY2004-2005 RX-8.

 

Updated July 27 2020 – This amendment is to inform of Mazda’s intent to implement the “other” reporting category for removed vehicles in Quarterly Reporting as permitted in the Third Amendment to the Coordinated Remedy Order (“ACRO”), Paragraphs 45 through 49.  As a condition of the ACRO, all affected vehicles will remain active, or “live”, across Mazda’s data systems such that any search of “other” removed VINs will return an open recall status.  For this reason, the Number of potentially involved vehicles in this report will remain the same.  However, for reference, initial counts of vehicles in the “other” reporting category are indicated in attached supplement.  Note that these counts are current as of the second calendar quarter 2020.  Future changes to overall Total Removed counts, including “Other,” will be reflected in quarterly reporting as well as monthly dashboard reporting until otherwise directed by the agency.

1 Associated Investigation

Air Bag Inflator Rupture
NHTSA ID: EA15001
Dated opened: February 24, 2015

The Office of Defects Investigation (ODI) opened PE14-016 in June 2014 based on six inflator rupture incidents involving consumer owned vehicles produced by five vehicle manufacturers. All six vehicles were operated in Florida or Puerto Rico at the time of the rupture and for the majority of their service life, and were equipped with inflators produced by Takata, a tier-one supplier of automotive air bag systems.

During the course of PE14-016, ODI determined that five additional vehicle manufacturers used inflators of a similar design and vintage also supplied by Takata. No evidence of field failures was found in vehicles produced by these five additional manufacturers. Nonetheless, at ODI’s insistence, all 10 vehicle manufacturers initiated a regional recall within approximately two weeks of the opening of the investigation. The regions recalled initially included Florida, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, areas with high absolute humidity and climatic conditions believed to be a significant factor in the inflator ruptures. As part of the recall actions, inflators removed from remedied vehicles are to be returned to Takata for testing.

Takata’s initial test results on passenger inflators from remedied vehicles indicated a much higher than anticipated rupture frequency for inflators returned from Florida. Accordingly ODI requested all 10 manufacturers expand the regional recalls for passenger inflators to include other geographic areas where high absolute humidity conditions exist, including the Gulf States and other coastal areas. Takata’s testing of the passenger inflators to date continues to indicate this geographic area as having the highest risk, with no ruptures occurring from inflators returned from outside the expanded recall regions. During PE14-016 four additional passenger inflator field events occurred, all in vehicles from the same expanded geographic region.

Also during PE14-016 four additional driver inflator field events occurred including two in vehicles from regions not known for high absolute humidity, specifically California and North Carolina. Accordingly, ODI requested all five of the affected vehicle manufacturers currently using the subject Takata driver inflators expand to nationwide recalls. Significantly, neither of the affected vehicle manufacturers or Takata provided any explanation to account for these two driver air bag inflator ruptures outside the area of high absolute humidity. Takata testing of returned driver inflators indicates a lower rupture frequency as compared to passenger inflator testing. All test ruptures reported by Takata to date have occurred on inflators returned from high absolute humidity areas.

The investigation now includes all manufacturers and vehicles known to be affected at this time. ODI’s investigation will focus on, among other things, root cause analysis, other potential defect consequences, identification of affected vehicles scope, and adequacy of the remedy.

The five ODI reports cited above can be reviewed online at https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/SearchNHTSAID under the following identification numbers: 10537899, 10568848, 10585224, 10605877, 10651492
