The recalls affects about 682 vehicles whose airbags may not unfold or deploy properly in the event of a crash, Mazda said.

While there have been no reports of injuries or other incidents associated with the recall, the automaker said the potential defect could lead to increased risk of injury in the event of a crash.

Mazda said it is in communication with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), but has not yet issued a recall notification date. The small number of vehicles included in the action represents what CNET calls a “quick-catch” by Mazda over a problem with one of its more popular models.

To search active recalls, use the NHTSA website to input your 17-character VIN number. VIN numbers are typically located under the driver’s side windshield, or along the inside of the doors behind the seat or under the steering wheel.
