Mazda Recalls Vehicles a Second Time Over Takata Airbags

Written by David A. Wood,

Mazda is recalling nearly 117,000 vehicles that were previously recalled to replace the passenger Takata airbag inflators.

  • 2004-2011 Mazda RX-8
  • 2007-2012 Mazda CX-7
  • 2007-2012 Mazda CX-9
  • 2003-2012 Mazda Mazda6
  • 2004-2005 Mazda MPV
  • 2006-2007 Mazda Mazdaspeed6


The Takata airbag inflators may explode due to degradation of the deployment propellant, ammonium nitrate, which is affected by high humidity and high temperatures.


The Mazda Takata airbag inflator recall is expected to begin Dec. 18, 2019. Dealerships will replace the front passenger airbag inflators.


Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 800-222-5500 and refer to recall number 1317F.
