Mazda announces the first recall for the MX-30 electric model

Mazda has discovered two problems, which it solves with the recall of the new MX-30 model.

In Europe, 11,774 of these electric SUVs can be affected. One reason is that the brake lights come on when reversing, even when the brake pedal is not depressed.

The second problem concerns the Motor Hill Assist (MHA) control unit. “If the vehicle drives from a slippery road surface (e.g. ice) onto a surface with high friction and the driver applies the brake, it is possible that the vehicle will start moving after the brake is released. As soon as the brake is applied repeatedly, the engine torque decreases again,” emphasizes the Mazda’s German headquarters.

Both issues can occur with electric SUVs manufactured between May 19 and November 17, 2020. Vehicles that have a problem with the brake lights left the assembly line a few days longer, specifically until December 4 last year.

The internal recall code is AM001A, and according to Mazda, the software update should take approximately 20 minutes.
