REMEDY:

Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver's frontal air bag inflator, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 7914J. Note: This recall supersedes recall 14V344 in its entirety. Additionally, vehicles that have had their driver's frontal air bag replaced previously as part of a recall remedy need to have their air bag replaced under this recall as well.
