2017 Mazda CX-5: Recall Alert

2017 Mazda CX-5

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 1,100 model-year 2017 Mazda CX-5 SUVs equipped with an accessory trailer-hitch wiring harness

The Problem: Insufficient clearance between the harness and the exhaust muffler may result in contact and subsequent damage to the harness, potentially resulting in inoperative trailer lights and increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will reroute the trailer hitch harness away from the muffler, replacing the harness if it's damaged, for free.

What Owners Should Do: Mazda will begin notifying owners on Jan. 20, 2018. Owners can call the automaker at 800-222-5500, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit www.safercar.gov to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
