Well looks like I'm getting plastic shot at me by my airbag if I'm ever in an accident!

Yep, looks like early 1st gen Mazda 6's will be affected according to this:
Recall Alert: Airbag Problem Affects Millions of Toyota, Honda, Nissan and Mazda Vehicles - KickingTires

"
The New York Times reported that the 480,000 Nissans being recalled worldwide include 2000-04 Maxima sedans, Infiniti FX crossovers, Infiniti QX4 SUVs, Pathfinder SUVs and Sentra compact sedans; and that 20,000 Mazdas were being recalled worldwide, including 2003-04 Mazda6 sedans and 2004 RX-8 sports cars."

If it's a health hazard and the fix is free it might be worth a visit to the stealership...

This is from Mazda:

Manufacturer: Mazda North American Operations

SUMMARY:
Mazda is recalling certain model year 2003-2004 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured January 14, 2003, through May 29, 2003; and 2004 RX-8 vehicles manufactured June 25, 2003, through June 30, 2003, to address a safety defect in the passenger side air bag which may produce excessive internal pressure causing the inflator to rupture upon deployment of the air bag. This recall addresses the passenger air bags that were originally installed in the vehicles, as well as replacement air bags that may have been installed as replacement service parts. A replacement air bag may have been installed, as one example, if a vehicle had been in a crash necessitating the replacement of the passenger side air bag.


CONSEQUENCE:
In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger's air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking and potentially seriously injuring the passenger seat occupant or other occupants.

REMEDY:
Owners of all vehicles on which a defective air bag may have been installed either as original equipment, or as a replacement, will be notified. Dealers will inspect vehicles, and where a defective air bag inflator is identified, the inflator will be replaced, free of charge. The safety recall will begin in May 2013. Owners may contact Mazda Customer Assistance Center at 1-800-222-5500, option #6 . Mazda's recall campaign number is 6913D.

NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Here is the NYTimes article about the news.

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/04/12/bu...eid=auto&_r=1&

There are now multiple threads here regarding this subject. Perhaps the mods can merge?
