Mazda Recall Notice
« on: September 06, 2018, 10:20:00 am »
Hi,

Having recently bought my CX-7. I was just checking and found that Mazda put out a recall notice for cz-7's back in August 2017, stating that the following:

"LOWER BALLJOINT MAY FAIL
Description :   Water could enter the front lower suspension ball joint, which can cause noise from front suspension and in worst-case failure of lower ball joint. If this occurs, directional control could be impaired."

I can't see any documents or info in the paperwork I got with the car that says it was done. 

How would I best go about finding out if it had been done or not?  I've sent a message to the guy I got it from but he hasn't come back yet.  Could I contact Mazda or a local Mazda dealer? 

Thanks

Yes the dealer can check that.

https://www.gov.uk/check-mot-history

Enter your number plate and go to "outstanding vehicle recalls". This will not give you the details of the recall though but the dealer will know what to do.
