Mazda is recalling nearly 100,000 Mazda6 sedans for an issue with the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS). The system may fail to properly notify the driver of a loss of air pressure.

The Problem: If all four tires on affected vehicles experience gradual air pressure drops at the same time, the TPMS may not warn the driver of the loss of air pressure. An underinflated tire could fail, increasing the risk of a crash. The TPMS does not comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard requirements.

The Fix: Beginning December 5, 2014, Mazda will notify owners to bring their vehicles into a dealer to have the TPMS software updated. Owners can contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500.

Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 99,711 2014-2015 Mazda6 sedans manufactured October 25, 2012, to October 10, 2014 are affected by the recall.
