What Should I Do If There’s Been A MAZDA Recall?
If you’ve previously purchased a MAZDA vehicle with us and have come to discover a Mazda recall has occurred for your specific model, it’s important to react quickly to make sure your safety isn’t compromised. The vehicles that we carry here at Med Center Mazda are all of the highest quality, but the unfortunate reality is that things sometimes go wrong, and you may need to swap out a defective mechanical part. To help you better understand recalls, our team has created this short guide.
What Is a Recall?
All the MAZDA parts in the models we offer are OEM-approved and high quality, but things often go wrong unexpectedly. If the car manufacturer or the NHSTA decides that a vehicle or specific part of a vehicle fails to meet their minimum safety standard, a recall will be issued. In simple terms, the manufacturer is required to fix these issues by either offering a refund or a replacement part for free. If any issue arises that compromises motor vehicle safety and it’s found that it may exist in a group of vehicles of the same type or design, a recall will be issued.
What to Do After a Recall Has Been Issued
Once it’s been determined that a recall is necessary, you’ll be directly notified, usually by mail, by either our dealership or Mazda itself. If you are concerned about a potential recall that may affect your vehicle, you also have the option to manually check on the status of your car through Safercar.gov or its mobile app.
After you’ve determined that a recall has occurred for your vehicle or a certain part, it’s important to visit our Mazda service center as soon as you can so we can fix the issue free of charge. Our factory-trained technicians will do a thorough examination of your vehicle and provide you with various replacement options once we’ve determined the issue with the part that has been recalled.
