WASHINGTON — Mazda North American Operations is recalling 99,711 2014-'15 Mazda 6 sedans to fix a problem with the tire pressure monitoring system, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
A stop-sale order on the affected cars was issued on October 24.
"If the pressures of four of the tires on an affected vehicle gradually drop at the same time, the tire pressure monitoring system may not warn the driver of the drop in tire pressure," said NHTSA in its recall summary. "A vehicle that is driven with under-inflated tires may experience a sudden tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash."
Mazda told federal safety regulators there are no reports of accidents or injuries linked to the recall.
The affected vehicles were built from October 25, 2012 to October 10, 2014.
Edmunds says: Schedule a service appointment with your dealer once you receive your official recall notice. But if you notice a problem with your car in the meantime, it's best to contact your dealer now.
