The lawsuit alleges Mazda manufactured, distributed, or sold certain vehicles containing allegedly defective inflators manufactured by Takata Corporation and TK Holdings, Inc. that allegedly could, upon deployment, rupture and expel debris or shrapnel into the occupant compartment and/or otherwise affect the airbag’s deployment, and that the Plaintiffs sustained economic losses as a result.

The lawsuit pursues claims for violations of various state consumer protection statutes, among other claims. Mazda denies that it has violated any law, denies liability, and denies that it engaged in any wrongdoing with respect to the manufacture, distribution, or sale of the Subject Vehicles.

    Can I claim medical expense on this claim. Metal fragments cut my face and arms and had to go to the hospital after the accident.

    ADMIN – Hi David,

    Refer to the settlement agreement which reads as follows:

    Notwithstanding the Release set forth in Section VII of this Agreement, Plaintiffs and Class Members are not releasing and are expressly reserving all rights relating to claims for personal injury, wrongful death or actual physical property damage arising from an incident involving a Subject Vehicle, including the deployment or non-deployment of a driver or passenger front airbag with a Takata PSAN inflator.

    • Ron H. says:

      I wish to make claims for the “non-deployment” of the Takata Airbags, from an accident in my 2003 Dodge Ram ,while in Alabama .Inwhich injured myself and my family members .Also ,I purchased a 2016 Mazda 6 , in 2016, inwhich I still own today.Can my family and I be compensated for damages ?

      ADMIN – Hi Ron,

      This settlement is not for non-deployment. For non-deployment you may need to contact a personal injury attorney.

  2. Del says:

    Does my 97 626 fit in there anywhere? Thanks

    ADMIN – Hi Del,

    Did you use the tool provided and entered your VIN to check?

  3. dan whitaker says:

    When will the class members start to see some of the benefits of the lawsuit??

    ADMIN – Hi Dan,

    Air bag replacement is happening as I type. As for cash reimbursements those will take way longer.

    • Dan whitaker says:

      It is now may, any update on refund checks? Everyone knows these vehicle have or had bad airbags and the value had gone down like the Titanic!

      ADMIN – Hi Dan,

      I am not aware of any updates.

  4. Kimberly Miller says:

    What if I sold a vehicle after receiving a claim to have the repairs made to my airbag and didn’t get it fixed. Would I still qualify?

    ADMIN – Hi Kimberly,

    I don’t think so. But the current owner would.

  5. Kelly says:

    I use the verification tool it says that my VIN number is eligible or whatever. I was the sole owner of the car bought it brand-new in 2006. I have the bill of sale from the car dealership but in late 2016 possibly January 2017 normal wear and tear issues we’re developing on the car and I had received a notice from Mazda in the mail in regards to this issue with the airbags and between all of that I decided it wasn’t worth fixing the car so I had it junked .would I still qualify

    ADMIN – Hi Kelly,

    It includes a former owner clause but I believe it is only for expenses. Please refer to the long notice.

  6. Cynthia A Hockert says:

    My Mazda qualifies but there is not a “certified Mazda” dealer in my area. Now what?

    ADMIN – Hi Cynthia,

    You will have to find the nearest Mazda even if it is a drive away.

  7. dan whitaker says:

    Do we have a date on when settlements will be passed along to the consumers.

    ADMIN – Hi Dan,

    The repairs tend to happen right away. Cash reimbursements take longer.

  8. R G says:

    Whats the results of the final Feb 8 2018 hearing ?
    On the original card i got in the mail it said something about $5k per applicant, is that the case ? or whats the amount each applicant will get ?

    ADMIN – Hi RG,

    Please refer to question 9 on the FAQ.

  9. Jessica says:

    I had a vehicle that had the recall but it was totaled before I was able to fix it. Am I still eligible since technically I had the vehicle.

    ADMIN – Hi Jessica,

    Former owners are also members of the class.

  10. R G says:

    Hi,

    i double checked, and the letter i got in the mail said the following:
    The court will hold a hearing on October 25 2017 to consider whether to finally approve the settlement and a request for attorneys fees up to 30% of the Settlement amount and award of up to $5000 to each Class Representative.

    I can send you an email with the card i got back in the summer if you provide me with your email.
