Mazda Motor Corporation has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 2006 MX-5 Miata vehicles produced from December 22, 2005 through February 15, 2006.
Mazda has decided to conduct a Recall Campaign to replace the driver-side front air bag module with a new one.
On certain 2006 MX-5 Miata vehicles, the bolt attaching the horn assembly to the steering wheel hub may fail during a driver-side front airbag deployment in extremely low ambient temperature. Should this occur, the horn assembly may come loose and injure the driver.

We will begin automatic shipping of airbags to dealers, for non-retailed vehicles, beginning April 18, 2006. These initial shipments will be entered as CSO orders and should arrive at dealerships by April 20-21, 2006. The CSO handling charge will be waived. Once these initial shipments are received, additional airbags for in-stock vehicles can be ordered via the e-mail form on the DAG website. A VIN number will be required for each airbag order.
Airbags for retailed vehicles will not be pre-shipped to dealers. They will be available for ordering beginning Monday May 01, 2006. All airbags required for retailed vehicles will need to be ordered via the e-mail order form, found on the DAG website. A VIN number will be required for each airbag order.
Due to HAZMAT requirements, these airbags will be shipped as SSO / stock orders. If there is a need for an expedited shipment, this information needs to be included on the DAG e-mail form.
Properly return defective air bags to your facing PDC.
