Certain 2014–2015 Mazda6 vehicles may not meet the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety standards for tire pressure monitoring (TPMS). According to reports filed on the NHTSA website, if the pressure in all four tires gradually drop at the same time, the TPMS may not detect the drop and could fail to alert the driver. If the vehicle is driven on under inflated tires for prolonged periods, the tires will wear unevenly and could result in sudden tire failure.
Mazda will be notifying owners to return to their dealership to have the TPMS software updated. Owners wanting more information about the problem are asked to contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500. The NHTSA campaign number for this recall is 14V-675.
