Notes: The MAZDA6 was redesigned for the 2009 model year. Like any first-year product, it has a few growing pains – most notably a shiny, melting dashboard that can blind the driver.

  • 17,800 miles


The contact owns a 2009 Mazda Mazda6. The contact stated that they turned the defrost on and a yellow sac spider came out of the vent and bit him. The contact spoke with a pharmacist regarding the spider bite and was told that they heard of the failure with the yellow sac spider. The contact spoke with manufacturer and was told that they had considered issuing a recall notice at the end of March or the beginning of April, because this happened in other countries. The contact stated that the manufacturer came to his home, retrieved the vehicle, inspected it by placing a stick and a brush inside the fuel line. If there were no spiders in the fuel line, they would return the vehicle. The contact was concerned since they were not checking the air vents where the spider was. The contact was concerned about the safety risk since the spiders could come out of the vents while driving. The VIN was unknown. The failure mileage and current mileage was 17,800.
