Three of Mazda‘s recalls in 2018 affected the Mazda6 model. The first one appeared in January for cars with production date 7/2012 – 11/2014. Infiltration of water may affect the functionality of the parking brake. The other two were announced in July and November 2018. Both include production between 6/2002 – 6/2005 and both have a common denominator in the defective airbag inflator. First with the driver, while the second with the co-driver side of the vehicle.



In June, the owners of the Mazda RX-8 could learn that with cars produced between 7/2003 – 2/2008, cracks can form on the socket of the front lower transverse link.

The November´s recall for Mazda2, CX-3 and MX-5 warns against the risk of fire. The engine control unit of the direct-current converter may be defective with cars manufactured from August 2014 to April 2017.
