2014-2016 Mazda3, 2014-2015 Mazda6: Recall Alert



Vehicles Affected: Approximately 228,000 model-year 2014-16 Mazda3 cars and model-year 2014-15 Mazda6 sedans

The Problem: Water could enter the brake caliper, causing the parking brake actuator shaft to corrode and possibly bind, which may prevent the parking brake from engaging or disengaging fully. This could allow the vehicle to move unexpectedly when parked on a slope, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will check the parking brake actuator shafts and replace any that are corroded for free.

What Owners Should Do: Mazda will begin notifying owners Aug. 21. Owners can call the automaker at 800-222-5500, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
