The Chinese government said on Sept. 25th that FAW Car Co Ltd., a partner of Japan’s Mazda Motor Corp., is recalling almost 280,000 Mazda 6 cars for safety problems with air bags that expel flying debris on deployment. According to a translated statement on the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine’s website, the recall affects Mazda 6 models made between March 29, 2003, and Dec. 29, 2008.
Although the agency didn’t name the supplier of the air bags, the defective air bags were made by Takata Corp., according to a Reuters report. In June, Mazda North America Operations added 540,000 cars and trucks in the U.S. and Canada to the millions of vehicles that automakers have recalled for containing possibly defective air bags.
