Mazda issues recall in China for airbag problem

Xinhua, September 29, 2015 Adjust font size:

Mazda Motor (China) Co., a subsidiary of Japanese automaker Mazda, is recalling 309 Mazda 6 sedans and 370 RX-8 cars in China over faulty airbags, according to China's top quality watchdog.

The imported cars were manufactured between March 29, 2002 and Feb. 15, 2008, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ) said Tuesday in a statement.

Due to a problem with a supplier, inflators in the front airbags could rupture when the airbags deploy and broken parts may hurt motorists, the statement said.

The company will replace the defective inflators free of charge starting from Tuesday. Endi
