Tell them to get the part off another car in the lot and deal with replacing the part that car on their time......:smile2:
This is a very interesting question.I guess the real question is....If they built cars 7 days a week, what day of the week would you not want your car built?
I obviously meant the question in jest using the Old Monday/Friday rule. But the answer to your question is numbers 12-17 of the Vin are the very specific production line info to each car which can include day of the week it rolled off the line. Unfortunately, these numbers are specific to manufacturer only so there is no way for an owner to decipher themselves as they are not globally uniform. Many dealers, service departments or even parts departments can look up the VIN and determine the day of the week of manufacturer. When the dealer receives the car, they also get additional build detail of the car. This would also be info the salesperson could provide when you are looking at cars. It can be obtainable after the fact, if you can get a friendly employee at the dealer to look it up for you.This is a very interesting question.
What is the answer? Can you tell from the Mazda VIN when the car was built? If so do you have a link to that information?
hey man, go get yours checked out. They might be able to fix yours right away if your car gives out the known warning code. My car has a brand new warning code that they're still trying to figure out so if yours give out the same thing, you might have to wait a while.
Thank you very much for the update. Please keep us informed for those that might have this issue later on.I had it happen twice to me in the beginning but have not encountered any airbag issue in the last 2 weeks but if it happens again I will take it to dealership
So why would you not just drive the loaner until your's gets properly fixed? I would have just left it there until fixed as this is a safety issue.Update:
Mazda Service informed me that the part needed is on back order and no telling when, perhaps a number of weeks before they are shipped from Japan. So, I gave back my loaner car and returned home. No warning indicator lights came on thank goodness. Service rep did not want to release the car back to me at first because it was a safety issue, so I signed a release of responsibility.
I am going away for a while and I did not wanna leave my car there and decided to take it back to my garage which I felt it would be safer. No other reason. They were so indecisive as to when the part would arrive, and I was just a little bit uncomfortable leaving my brand new car somewhere else. I did ask if they can take apart from another 2019 and of course that was a no-no.So why would you not just drive the loaner until your's gets properly fixed?

Of course when its on their dime. You might be surprised how often hoods, front fenders, wheels and other parts are swapped on the QT at the dealer when somebody damages a car on the lot.....and it doesn't have to be reported either according to the law...:surprise: In your case taking a vital safety part off another car means that car will sit unsold until the new part gets there, which means they probably have to pay property taxes on it if it sits too long....or your car will be unusable for the same length of time. Guess which option the dealer will pick.....I did ask if they can take apart from another 2019 and of course that was a no-no.
This is reported on another forum as well. Looks like it’s widespread or at least it seems that way. Unknown why it turns on then it turns off when you turn off/on the car again. Mine hasn’t come back on for a couple of weeks.For the record, this just happened with my Japanese-built sedan. However, when I restarted the car the error message went away.
