  • Recall Number
    14V675000
    Recall Date
    10/27/2014
    Component
    TIRES:PRESSURE MONITORING AND REGULATING SYSTEMS
    Summary

    Mazda North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured October 25, 2012, to October 10, 2014. If the pressures of four of the tires on an affected vehicle gradually drop at the same time, the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) may not warn the driver of the drop in pressure. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 138, "Tire Pressure Monitoring System."

    Consequence

    A vehicle that is driven with under inflated tires may experience a sudden tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.

    What Owners Should Do

    Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will update the TPMS software, free of charge. The recall began on December 10, 2014. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500.
