Mazda Motor Corp. is recalling over 2 million vehicles across the globe due to issues with potentially faulty rear gates and computers problems related to some diesel engines.
According to International Business Times, the recall is related to potentially faulty rear gates, which are susceptible to corrosion and possible breakage after exposure to salt, and computer systems that could negatively affect a vehicle’s computer system.
Repairs are being offered to consumers free of charge for all vehicles affected by the recalls. If a consumer is looking for a full refund, however, this will be harder to achieve.
According to Mazda, a full refund will be issued if a consumer discovered an issue with their vehicle, had it fixed, and then a recall was issued for the same defective item. The consumer can present a receipt of the work at an authorized Mazda dealer within 10 days of the first mailing of the recall notice for a full refund.
The recalls affects the Mazda 3 sedan and CX-3 compact SUV.
This is the latest in a long line of recalls for Mazda, which has been heavily affected by the recall of Takata airbag inflators.
