Bermaz has expanded its Takata airbag recall campaign for Mazda vehicles, with the RX-8 (FE), additional units of the first-gen BT-50 (UN) and third-gen Mazda 2 (DE) joining the company’s previous recall campaign that included the Mazda 6 (GG).

According to the company’s dedicated webpage, 46 units of the rotary-powered sports car produced between 2008 and 2011, and 5,898 units of the Mazda 2 made between 2010 and 2014, are affected. All the vehicles mentioned will need to have their front passenger-side airbag inflators replaced.

As for the pick-up, a total of 3,384 units made between 2004 and 2011 are listed in the recall, with 1,551 requiring both frontal airbag inflators (driver and passenger) to be replaced. Meanwhile, 1,833 trucks will only require the front passenger-side airbag inflator to be swapped.

The company’s earlier recall involved 427 units of the Mazda 6 (GG), whereby both the driver- and passenger-side airbag inflators required replacing, while 576 units of the first-generation BT-50 needed new driver-side airbag inflators.

Customers are advised to contact the Mazda Zoom Zoom Line at 1800-22-8080 for further inquires and to place appointments. 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.

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. Please do not hesitate in ensuring that your vehicle gets its airbags replaced should it be listed as an affected model.
