Mazda vehicles that may catch fire recalled in the US
Japanese auto manufacturer Mazda Motor Corporation recently issued a recall to thousands of their vehicles in the U.S. to replace a component that could cause a fuel leak and lead to fire, a November 15 article of Reuters reported.
Information coming from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) revealed that the recall covers 70,000 previous models of RX-8 sports cars equipped with substandard sealing rings in the fuel pump. Federal highway safety regulators explained that the vehicles are likely to catch fire if fuel leaks from the deteriorated pump sealing rings. The automaker and federal authorities have not received any incidents of personal injuries or accidents involving the recalled vehicles. Mazda is expected to notify owners of recalled vehicles for the free pump sealing ring replacement in the vehicles.
