Emergency Braking Problem Leads to Mazda3 Recalls
Around 35,000 Mazda3 hatchbacks and sedans faced an emergency braking system recall beginning last month.
About the Mazda3 Recall
Mazda Motor Corporation issued a safety hazard recall for their 2019 and 2020 model hatchbacks and sedans due to unexpected braking problems. More than 35,000 of these vehicles suffered from automatic emergency braking system dilemmas that could potentially lead to accidental collisions.
Mazda officials have reported that no one has been seriously injured as of yet due to the brake failures. On the other hand, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has evidence of a collision as well as an injury due to the recall issues.
Consumers of this car brand and model should be on the lookout for warning alarms or messages displayed behind the steering wheel. The easiest solution to this problem is for Mazda manufacturers to update the AEB software systems.
Major Details of the Mazda3 Recall
- Approximately 35,390 Mazda3 vehicles were recalled from 2019/2020
- The faulty AEB systems wrongfully detect obstacles and apply the breaks to stop collisions when a collision is not underway
- Car dealers will be able to update the AEB software for free
- Car owners may put their VIN numbers into the NHTSA website to see if their car has the recall
