Vehicles Affected: More than 99,000 model-year 2014-15 Mazda6 sedans manufactured between Oct. 25, 2012, to Oct. 10, 2014.
The Problem: If the pressure in the four tires gradually drop at the same time, the affected car’s tire pressure monitoring system may not warn the driver of the decrease in pressure. Cars with underinflated tires may experience a tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.
The Fix: Mazda will notify affected owners in early December, and dealers will update the tire pressure monitoring system software free of charge.
What Owners Should Do: Owners can call 800-222-5500, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
