    Hey all.

    Just to let anyone with a Mazda 3 BL MK2 know.

    There is a recall on the cars for boot struts and drivers seat. Unsure if it applies to all models but it definitely does for the MPS.

    Mines booked in to have both replaced on the 20th.

    All the best

    I've received a recall letter for the same parts on my Mazda 6 (GH). Looks like it covers all 3's and 6's of the same era.

    Seems to only apply to hatchbacks without electric seats.

    I know the 6 GH has always had problems with the non electric seats becoming loose.

    Mine's only been recalled for the boot struts - no mention of the driver's seat.
