Mazda Is Recalling 2.3 Million Cars Around the World
Mazda is recalling 2.3 million cars around the world due to issues with their engines and rear doors.
The majority of the recalls stem from problems with the paint on the hydraulic arm that holds the back door, which the company found could allow it to rust and stop working, according to the Journal. This issue affects vehicles manufactured between 2007 and 2015.
For 117,030 of the cars being recalled, the issue came from a malfunction in the chip controlling diesel engines that could cause the engine to stop running. This affected cars sold in Japan and built between 2014 and 2016, and did not cause any accidents, Mazda told the Journal.
The automaker recently launched a recall information website where consumers can get updates and look up whether their vehicle is affected. Mazda also has been dealing with large recalls over problems with Takata air bags, and saw a loss of $365.6 million in the quarter that ended March 31 due to related costs.
