Four Mazda recalls for Mazda3, CX-30, CX-5 and B-Series pickup (week 23/20)



This week’s recalls:
– Mazda3 + CX-30 – engine stall
– Mazda CX-5 – headlights
– Toyota RAV4 – lower arms
– Mercedes V-Class – fuel laek


12 recalls for 15 models were issued by eight carmakers in the 23rd week of 2020 through the Rapex system. Four recalls were announced by Mazda, while three by Ford and two by Mercedes-Benz. Audi, Bentley, Hyundai, Suzuki, and Toyota issued one recall each.

Mazda is recalling the Mazda3 and CX-30 models due to problems with the powertrain control module (PCM) software, which may cause the engine to stall. With the CX-5, the LED daytime running lights can flicker, while the 1999 Mazda Serie B is being recalled for the Takata airbag. For the same reason, Ford is recalling over twenty-year-old Everest and Ranger models produced between 1998 and 1999 and Suzuki its Grand Vitara model from the same period.

Toyota RAV4 made in September and October 2019 may have cracks on the front lower arms. With the Mercedes Vito/V-Class, the fuel return line may be damaged by contact with the underbody paneling.

The adhesive bond between the sunroof and the vehicle body does not meet the specifications with the Ford Transit Connect but also with the Bentley Continental GT and the Flying Spur.
