Which Mazda models are being recalled in 2019?

10 recalls for 10 Mazda models in 2019


In 2019, Mazda announced 10 recalls involving 10 models through the EU Rapex system. The Mazda 3 were the most recalled model with 6 recalls.


We’ve sorted all 2019 recalls according to the model into a table below.

Six out of ten of Mazda’s recalls related to the Mazda3 in 2019. In addition to common problems with several other models (engines), it was also due to a windscreen wiper fault, the passenger airbag deactivation indicator light, or the wheels not correctly tightened.



The Engine Control Unit (PCM) may fail to switch from the cylinder deactivation to normal mode with Mazda3, Mazda CX-5, and Mazda6 models produced between June 2017 and May 2019.

The air inlet valve may get stuck in a closed position due to accumulated soot with the Mazda3, Mazda6 and CX-5 models produced between 2012 – 2018.

Nearly 6,000 Mazda models equipped with the revolutionary Skyactiv-X engine, which combines petrol and diesel engine elements, may have problems with the fuel supply. The recall concerns Mazda3 models manufactured between 14 June to 1 October 2019 and Mazda CX-30 from the period of 14 July to 1 October 2019.

We’ve written about some problems in more detail in separate articles.


Even if you don’t see your car in the table below, it doesn’t mean it was not the subject of a recall sometime in the past. The best way to verify whether a particular car is affected by some recall is to contact a Mazda Authorized Service and ask for the VIN code to be checked not only for recalls but also for various Service bulletins.

It will only cost you your time because such information is provided for free. Free of charge are usually also all the repairs that are related to the recall. It doesn’t matter whether you are the first, second or even third owner. It doesn’t even matter whether you have been to Mazda authorized service regularly, occasionally or never before.

If you wish to get fully comprehensive VIN lookup, with more than 80 data points about the history of the car, then we suggest going to HPI-Check, which provides information on a specific vehicle using also the vehicle registration number.


What is a VIN code?
The VIN code is a unique identification number that is embossed on the body of the car and shown on the ID card. In some cars, it can also be found in the frame under the windscreen. It is made up of a unique combination of 17 letters and numbers.
