Attention: Mazda Service and Parts Managers

Subject: Upcoming Special Service Program 96 - Takata Airbag Inflators

Due to a proactive, preventative investigation by Mazda and NHTSA, Mazda plans to conduct a Special Service Program (SSP96) to replace certain air bag inflators manufactured by Takata Corporation and TK Holdings, Inc. on vehicles originally sold or registered in Florida, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico. The driver and/or front passenger frontal airbags may not deploy properly in the event of an accident.

A defect determination has not yet been made. A collaborative investigation with NHTSA is a preventive action measure to fully understand the scope of this issue.

Potentially affected Mazda vehicles (approximately 34,600 vehicles)
