Mazda has recalled 2.3 million cars around the globe because of faulty engines and rear doors. The recalled vehicles include the Mazda 3, CX-3, and the CX-5 crossover SUV. Mazda confirmed that the cars with these issues did not cause any accidents.
The recalls have been made due to an issue in the paint on the hydraulic arm that holds the rear door, which will rust and eventually stop working. The vehicles manufactured between 2007 and 2015 are being recalled.
Out of 2.3 million cars, 1,17,030 cars have been recalled due to a malfunctioning chip, which controls diesel engines, which will kill the engine while running. The cars with this issue are sold in Japan and were manufactured between 2007 and 2016.
This is not the first time Mazda has recalled its vehicles. In May, many vehicles in the US had been recalled due to defective Takata airbags. The Japanese airbag maker had declared that the airbags installed in about 33.8 million US vehicles are defective.
Not only Mazda had this issue, other car makers such as BMW, Ford, Fiat, Chrysler, and General Motors had also recalled vehicles over faulty Takata airbag issues.
