Mazda has also announced a new Takata call back affecting B-Series trucks. One hundred and sixty B-Series pickups are getting called back by the automaker to fix the deadly airbag defect that has taken the lives of 18 people worldwide. Previously addressing the driver-side airbags, the latest expansion now extends to the passenger-side front airbags in certain B-Series vehicles.
Almost 200 Mazda B-Series pickups got a second call back to fix their Takata airbags. The automaker strongly urges B-Series owners to immediately stop driving their trucks until the issue is fixed. The B-Series pickup, which has the same platform as the Ford Ranger pickups, was manufactured with identical Takata airbags. Dealerships will replace the defective airbags at no cost to the customer. Mazda customers should call the Customer Experience Department if their vehicle is affected at 800-222-5500. If you are not sure whether your car is in need of its Takata airbags replaced, enter its VIN on the NHTSA recall website.
