    Received this recall notice today for my 2014 Mazda6 6MT. I've already had two incidents of this failure pre-recall; one each of my rear calipers - luckily not at the same time. Both times MAP covered me for a rental, each taking about six weeks to replace. An updated caliper is not yet available, so it looks like the replacements I have may be susceptible to the same failure.

    Good luck to anyone out there who is affected.

    Got the pre recall notice couple days ago. Waiting for the actual notice so I can get this fixed.
    Maybe this is why I had to replace my rear pads after only 60K kms!!!

    My rear pads go about 60k as well before crapping out. I'm hoping this is the cause. I've even mentioned the short life span to the dealer and they don't say much other that the rear pads are thinner. I'm not buying it as the sole root cause.

    As a comparision, I'm still on my original front pads at 109k km, but am on my second set of replacement (OEM) rear pads.
