Recall roundup: New-gen Mazda6 image

The new generation of the Mazda6 is the subject of a recall in the United States because of the faulty tire pressure monitoring software.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has recently issued a recall for the new generation of the Mazda6. According to the feds, there are approximately 100,000 units of the new Mazda6 sedan which are affected by this issue and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get it solved, as the software that is governing the system might not work properly and the drivers will not be alert when the tire pressure is critically low.

If this happens, than the risk of a crash will increase because of a high speed blowout. The good news is that the US vehicle safety regulator and Mazda are not aware of any crashes or injuries related to this condition. The recall is expected to being on the 5th of December and owners of the affected cars will be contacted by the company. The fix consists of a simple software re-flash and it will be made, of course, free of charge. For any extra details on the subject, owners can contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500 or the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236.
