      Mazda North American Operations is recalling 224 model year 2010-2011 RX-8s that were previously recalled but have not yet been repaired.

      The vehicles are equipped with airbag inflators assembled as part of the passenger front airbag modules used as original equipment or replacement equipment.

      In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger front airbag, these inflators may explode due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.

      An inflator explosion may result in sharp metal fragments striking the driver or other occupants resulting in serious injury or death.

      What to do

      Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger airbag inflator free of charge. The recall was expected to begin July 9, 2019.

      Owners may contact Mazda customer service at (800) 222-5500, option 4. Mazda's number for this recall is 2618F.
