Due to a software error, the powertrain control module (PCM) may operate improperly when transitioning from cylinder deactivation to full cylinder activation modes. As a result, an intake valve rocker arm may come out of position and make contact with internal engine parts. This may cause the engine to stall in motion without the ability to be restarted, increasing the risk of an accident.
The Mazda 6 models affected by this recall were manufactured between 26 March 2018 and 22 April 2019.

What the owner should do?
If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Mazda dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.
If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
