1080 × 720
Mazda North American Operations has filed a Part 573 notification with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for a safety defect on certain 2019 Model Year Mazda3 vehicles. Due to improper installation of the seat cover material of the front driver and passenger seatbacks, the material may interfere with the head restraint lock release button, causing the button to be stuck in the release position.
 
In this condition, the head restraint can be moved freely, without the ability to lock the vertical height adjustment at a desired position. If a crash were to occur, the head restraint could become loose and injure occupants in the vehicle. The defect can be detected when adjusting the height of the front head restraints. Mazda’s recall number is 3819F.
 
Approximately 9,430 vehicles are affected in the US and US Territories.
 
No accidents, injuries, or deaths have been reported from the field to date as a result of this defect.
