When you are involved in an accident, it is imperative to determine, first of all, who is at fault and second, if there is insurance to cover for that accident.

Mazda Recalled Models
Previously, Mazda reported it was recalling about 44,000 cars in the United States and 2,600 in Puerto Rico. However, the new total of potentially affected vehicles is now 86,773 and includes the following models:
Mazda Motor Corp's Mexican arm is also recalling around 2,816 cars to check for possible defects in airbags. The car producer will be contacting Mazda6 owners, with cars sold between 2006 and 2008. All Mazda owners will be notified and instructed to take their automobiles to a Mazda dealer to replace the airbag inflator with a new one. All work will be performed by Mazda approved dealers, free of charge to the vehicle owners.
How Do I Know If My Car Has Been Recalled?
Manufacturers are required to inform owners by mail within 60 days of informing NHTSA of a recall decision. You can search for your car on NHTSA's website https://vinrcl.safercar.gov/vin/ or your car manufacturer's website to see if it is under a recall. You will want your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to do the lookup. If there is a safety recall, your manufacturer will repair the car or equipment free of charge.
