A tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) is, as you might have guessed, designed to monitor the air pressure in the tires, and alert the driver if pressure drops. But a problem found in the Mazda6 could keep the system from doing its job.

According to the recall notice issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the TPMS in the Mazda6 might not recognize a loss in tire pressure if all the tires slowly deflate at the same time. Under-inflated tires, it goes without saying, could increase the risk of a crash.

As a result, Mazda is recalling 99,711 examples of the 2014-2015 Mazda6 to have the system's software updated.

RECALL Subject : Tire Pressure Monitoring System/FMVSS 138
Report Receipt Date: OCT 27, 2014
NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V675000
Component(s): TIRES
Potential Number of Units Affected: 99,711
Manufacturer: Mazda North American Operations

SUMMARY:
Mazda North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured October 25, 2012, to October 10, 2014. If the pressures of four of the tires on an affected vehicle gradually drop at the same time, the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) may not warn the driver of the drop in pressure. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 138, "Tire Pressure Monitoring System."

CONSEQUENCE:
A vehicle that is driven with under inflated tires may experience a sudden tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY:
Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will update the TPMS software, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on December 10, 2014. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500.

NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
