    Default New recall for 2010-11 Mazda 3, MS3 and Mazda 2

    Just read an article stating that Mazda will begin a recall in March for gen 2 Mazda 3 and Mazda 2 because the seat lifter brackets can crack and the break during operation causing the back of the seat to fall flat. The article says the US but I assume Canada will be included also. Just wanted to give you guys a heads up if your seat is making a strange noise while adjusting, the brackets could already be broken.

    It finally arrived officially here in Canada on Transport Canada Recall # 2017073

    http://wwwapps.tc.gc.ca/Saf-Sec-Sur/...rchResult&pg=0


    On certain vehicles, the push nuts and/or the lifter link which adjusts the height of the driver seat could be of insufficient strength and could become broken or detach from the seat frame. If this occurs, the seat height and inclination position would change rapidly, which could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will inspect the condition of the driver's seat lifter link. If no cracks are detected, a reinforcement bracket will be added to the lifter links, and the number of push nuts will be increased to two per seat lifter link. If any cracks are detected, dealers will replace the entire seat adjuster unit with a modified part.

    Driver's seat, but only with seats with manual lifters (the little plastic handle). Cars with power seats are unaffected.

    Oh super, another one. Although I doubt mine is very worn. I just set it to the lowest setting when I bought the car and never adjusted it.

    https://www.mazda.ca/en/owners/recalls/ put in your Vin and any recalls will come up for your vehicle but since the recall is new it may not be in the system yet. Plus you will get a letter from transport canada.

    Thank you for the information, I put my VIN in the website you linked me. It said I have no recalls yet (like you said probably cause it's new).

    Np, same thing happened to me when the recall for the rear hatch lifters. I got a letter​ from transport canada about a month later informing me of the recall. I tried the site again and then the info came up.
