What are the defects?

On the affected vehicles, an inappropriate type of paint has been used on the end-cap of the external body of the Liftgate Stay Dampers (struts). In regions where exposure to salt occurs, surface corrosion may result. If the corrosion is not addressed and progresses, the external body may swell and the end-cap may split and break as the Rear Liftgate (tailgate) is opened.

What are the hazards?

In the worst case scenario, people nearby may be at risk of injury from components dislodged by the pressurised gas contained in the Liftgate Stay Damper (strut).

What should consumers do?

Mazda Australia will contact all affected customers by mail as soon as parts become available. Customers will be advised to present their vehicle to their preferred Mazda Dealer for the replacement of the Liftgate Stay Dampers (struts) at no charge. Consumers who require further information should contact Mazda Customer Support on 1800 034 411.
