Models: 2014-2015 Odyssey
Mfg. Recall No.:
Canadian Units: 22,056
Description: On certain vehicles, the seat recliner mechanism for the second row left (driver’s) side seat may have a manufacturing error. If the second row left side seat walk-in feature (which folds the seatback and slides the seat forward for access to the third row) is operated while the seat is in the full recline position, the recliner cam could over rotate. When the seatback is returned to an upright position, there is a potential for the seatback to stay in unlocked position, or unexpectedly, unlock without engaging the lever. In the event of crash, an unlocked seatback could increase the risk of injury to the seat occupant.
Correction: Dealers will test the seat to confirm proper operation. If the seat recliner is found to be operating properly, a stopper bracket (which limits the rotation of the cam) will be installed on the seat recliner mechanism.

Recall No.: 2018-085
Company: Mazda
Models: 2006 B Series
Mfg. Recall No.: 2318A
Canadian Units: 874
Description: On certain vehicles, long-term exposure to high absolute humidity and temperature, combined with high temperature cycling, could eventually degrade the propellant contained in the passenger frontal airbag. This could cause the airbag to deploy with more force than normal. As a result, if the vehicle were involved in a collision that warrants airbag deployment, fragments could be propelled toward vehicle occupants and the airbag assembly could be damaged, preventing proper function. These issues could increase the risk of injury.
Correction: Dealers will replace the passenger frontal airbag inflator. Note: Canadian climate results in the propellant degrading slowly. The recall is being conducted as a precaution to address future risk and is expected to replace airbag inflators before their function would be affected. Additional Note: This recall supersedes recall 2015-246 (Mazda Recall 8315F). Vehicles completed under the previous 2015-246 recall require repair under this recall as the previous recall remedy was an interim repair. Interim repair parts must be replaced with final repair parts.



 
Recall No.: 2018-086
Company: Mazda
Models: 2006 B Series
Mfg. Recall No.: 2218A
Canadian Units: 874
Description: On certain vehicles, the driver airbag inflator could produce excessive internal pressure during airbag deployment. Increased pressure may cause the inflator to rupture, which could allow fragments to be propelled toward vehicle occupants, increasing the risk of injury. This could also damage the airbag module, which could prevent proper deployment. Failure of the airbag to fully deploy during a crash (where deployment is warranted) could increase the risk of personal injury to the seat occupant.
Note: A subset of 2006 B-Series (vehicles built from August 18, 2005 through November 3, 2005) may pose a higher risk of driver side airbag rupture than other recalled airbags. These vehicles are being recalled separately due to high risk under campaign 2218A. Visit www.mazda.ca/en/owners/recalls to determine if your vehicle is affected. Vehicles subject to 2218A should not be driven - Contact a Mazda dealer immediately to have the vehicle repaired.
Correction: Dealers will replace the driver frontal airbag inflator.
