PhotoMazda North American Operations is recalling 180 model year 2017 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured August 12, 2016, to September 28, 2016 and equipped with optional accessory fog lights.

Due to installation of an incorrect combination switch, the turn signals may not automatically cancel by the rotation of the steering wheel. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."

A vehicle driven with the turn signal flashing continuously may confuse other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the combination switch, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in November 2016.

Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 0316J.
