Mazda recalling millions of vehicles globally

Time 10:45 am, September 2, 2016

MAZDA is to recall 2.3 million of its vehicles around the world because of a tailgate problem and a separate diesel engine issue.

Japan’s fifth-largest car manufacturer said that 2.19 million vehicles would be called back for a fix to the tailgate damper stays, which could be prone to corrosion through salt exposure and then break. The affected six models include the CX-3 SUV and Mazda 3, pictured above, and were made between December 2007 and December 2015.

It has been reported that paint has been incorrectly applied to the tailgates.

In addition, some 110,000 of its vehicles that were made between August 2014 and last month are to be recalled in Japan because of a problem with the diesel engines’ computer. Again, those vehicles affected include the Mazda 3 and CX-3.
