We have some worrying news for certain Mazda car owners now, as it has been confirmed that over 215,000 Mazda models have been recalled due to a problem involving power steering.
According to this report from KeenObservers, Mazda Motor Corporation issued the recall today, and it affects the Mazda 3 and Mazda 5 Sedan models.
A recent statement by federal safety regulators revealed that sudden loss of steering on the models mentioned above could lead to serious injuries whilst driving on the road.
If you have only just bought your Mazda 3 or 5 Sedan, then you might be unaffected, as this recall only targets models with the years 2007-2009 (Mazda 3) and the April 07 – November 08 (Mazda 5).
The good news, is that no injuries or deaths have been reported due to the power steering problems. If you have an affected model, Mazda will be in touch with you shortly.
Let us know your thoughts on this.
