Mazda is recalling almost 100,000 Mazda 6 sedans from the model years 2014 through 2015 because the tire pressure warning systems may not work. According to federal regulations, tire pressure monitoring systems must issue a warning when one or more tires lose 25% of the air pressure.
A National Highway Traffic Safety Administration study showed that the Mazda vehicles lacked the capacity to warn of deflation occurring on all the tires. Without adequate warning, drivers could experience braking and stability issues as well as tire failures which could increase the risk of an accident and injuries.
Owners of the recalled sedans will be notified and can take their vehicles to a dealer where the software for the tire pressure system will be reprogrammed.
