Mazda CX-5 for North America

Mazda recalls 4 models in US over loose bolts in steering system

Mazda has issued a US recall of four models, the CX-9, Mazda 2 and the flagship CX-3 and CX-5. Mazda North America issued the recall with the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall is over a defect in the steering system. According to the NHTSA, the bolts that fix the front struts and steering knuckles are slack and if they loosen, it could result in a loss of control for the driver.

The recall applies to 2016 CX-3s, 2014-2016 CX-5s, 2013-2015 CX-9s, and 2013-2014 Mazda 2s in the US. It applies to a total of 578 cars.

Mazda North America is notifying affected customers. The bolts will be exchanged at dealerships and tightened correctly.
