Statement on Mazda Submitting Inconsequential Filing Petition to NHTSA

WASHINGTON, D.C. (July 21, 2017) – As part of its previous partnership with Ford Motor Company, Mazda sourced its B-Series truck from Ford.  When we were informed that Ford intended to submit an Inconsequential Filing petition to NHTSA regarding the replacement of Takata inflators on their Ranger truck models – the vehicle on which the Mazda B-Series is based – Mazda decided to follow suit.

The safety and satisfaction of our customers is the highest priority, and Mazda is diligently taking the proper steps to achieve this objective.
