Mazda Position Statement

Subject: Scanning a vehicle before and after a collision repair

Irvine, California, January 3, 2018 – Every Mazda vehicle is built with new technology to keep the passengers inside safer. Sensors, cameras, and radars are built into the car to accomplish the highest standard of safety.

As OE manufacturers become more technologically advanced, Mazda North American Operations recommends that all vehicles being repaired for collision damage be scanned before and after the repair. Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTCs) will be stored if any of the sensors, cameras, or radars were damaged in the collision.

Mazda North American Operations also recommends that only Mazda Genuine Parts be used when repairing the vehicle. Information on proper repair procedures, scanning and reprograming are available via to ensure that the vehicle is repaired correctly.
