Due to a defect in the Motor Hill Assist (MHA), when the vehicle is crossing from the slippery road surface (i.e. icy condition)to a high friction surface and the driver applies the brake immediately, it is possible that the vehicle may take off suddenly after the brake is released, increasing the risk of an accident.
Furthermore, the stop lamps may illuminate when driving reverse even though the brake pedal is not depressed, due to inappropriate lighting control logic in the powertrain control module.
The Mazda MX-30 models affected by this recall were manufactured between 19 May and 4 December 2020.
