Mazda is recalling 7,200 MY 2007-2008 Mazda6 vehicles with California emission specifications. The metal fuel tanks on the affected vehicles may have had the pvc protective coating on the outside of the fuel tank damaged during the assembly process which may result in reduced corrosion resistance.
Dealers will inspect the bottom surface of the fuel tank for damage to the protective coating and, if necessary, repair the coating or replace the fuel tank. The recall began on August 28, 2008. Owners may contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500, option 2.
