Vehicles • 2003-2004 Mazda 6

Problem • A safety defect in the passenger-side air bag may produce excessive internal pressure, causing the inflator to rupture upon deployment. In the event of a crash, the inflator could rupture, with metal fragments striking and potentially seriously injuring the passenger-seat occupant or other occupants. Dealers will inspect vehicles, and where a defective air-bag inflator is identified, the inflator will be replaced for free. The safety recall will begin this month.
