Mazda Malaysia Takat recall

Mazda Malaysia has announced a recall for the first-generation Mazda 6 (GG) and BT-50 (J97M) to replace potentially faulty Takata-made airbag inflators. Similar to previous recall programmes related to such airbag inflators, owners are urged to send their vehicles in for the necessary fixes as soon as possible.

For the Mazda 6, both the driver- and passenger-side airbag inflator will need to be replaced. According to Mazda Malaysia, 427 units of the D-segment sedan are affected. Meanwhile, only the driver-side airbag inflator in 576 units of the BT-50 will need replacing. Keep in mind that the current BT-50 and Mazda 6 (GJ) are not affected by this recall.

Customers are advised to contact Mazda Malaysia at 03-7627 8999 to check if their vehicle are among those affected by the recall. Vehicles owners can also log on to a dedicated website on the matter, where they can key in the 17-digit Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) at the bottom of the page to confirm if their vehicles are affected. The website can be found, here.

According to Mazda Malaysia, the fix will take roughly 1 to 1.5 hours, and due to the limited stock of new airbag inflators, the recall campaign will be done on a “first come, first serve” basis. Again, with all matters relating to airbags, please do not hesitate in ensuring that your vehicle gets checked should it be listed as an affected model.
