Approximately 36,760 model-year 2016 Mazda CX-5 SUVs are being recalled due to an issue with the sealing material for the daytime running lights. The LED daytime running lights may flicker or fail to illuminate while driving, reducing the vehicle’s visibility to other drivers on the road, increasing the risk of a crash.
Mazda did not immediately announce an owner notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 800-222-5500 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will inspect the lights and replace parts as needed.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
