2008 Mazda RX-8 (5/25/2016)  

Campaign Number: 16V354000

Component Name: AIR BAGS:PASSENGER SIDE FRONTAL

Manufacturer: Mazda Motor Corp.

Description: Mazda North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2004-2011 RX-8, 2004-2006 MPV, 2003-2008 Mazda6, and 2006-2007 Mazdaspeed6 vehicles, originally sold, or ever registered, in Alabama, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, Texas, Puerto Rico, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands (Saipan), and the U.S. Virgin Islands, or "Zone A." Additionally, unless included in "Zone A" above, Mazda is recalling certain model year 2004-2008 RX-8, 2004-2006 MPV, 2003-2008 Mazda6 vehicles, originally sold, or ever registered, in Arizona, Arkansas, Delaware, District of Columbia, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Maryland, Missouri, Nebraska, Nevada, New Jersey, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Virginia, and West Virginia, or "Zone B." Lastly, unless included in "Zone A" or "Zone B" above, Mazda is recalling certain model year 2004 Mazda RX-8 and MPV, 2003-2004 Mazda6 vehicles originally sold, or registered, in Alaska, Colorado, Connecticut, Idaho, Iowa, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Montana, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, Oregon, Rhode Island, South Dakota, Utah, Vermont, Washington, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules, and used as original equipment or replacement equipment.

Defect: An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

Corrective Action: Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 15, 2016. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 9416E.
