According to the reports, over 58,000 vehicles are being recalled by the company, and they are the 2015 through 2016 Mazda6 units.
Since these vehicles may have been exposed to debris during the manufacturing process’ welding phase, the front passenger seat frame may end up damaging the occupant classification system wiring. As a result, the driver may experience a loss of power steering assist.
In order to ensure that impacted vehicle owners are safe, the company will be attaching a protective pad on the seat frames in these vehicles. But in case the occupant classification system wiring is already damaged, dealers will have the harnesses insulated.
Mazda has announced that all impacted vehicle owners will be contacted and that the firm is ready to have the issues corrected. We certainly appreciate that the manufacturer is working diligently to make sure this issue is corrected since injuries associated with equipment failure-related car accidents can lead to serious and even deadly consequences.
