Mazda has issued a recall notice for the Mazda6 sedan for its tire pressure monitoring system. The recall involves a simple software update, but is an important safety recall that Mazda owners should take note of.
The recall affects Mazda6 vehicles made on or after October 25, 2012 (basically all 2013-2015 models sold to-date). The software in the TPMS (tire pressure monitoring system), administered through the ABS module, can have a delay in displaying the TPMS warning light that is too long to meet federal safety standards.
Mazda6 owners can visit any Mazda dealership to have their vehicle reprogrammed. About 100,000 vehicles in the U.S. are affected by this recall.
