Approximately 70,000 Mazda vehicles of previous years are being recalled in the U.S. by their manufacturer, due to concerns that they could catch fire, an article of Reuters stated on November 15.
Information coming from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) revealed that the 2004-2008 models of RX-8 sports cars may catch fire if fuel leaks in the sealing rings of the fuel pump. In a statement, the NHTSA explained that heat exposure from the exhaust pipe or engine could cause the “fuel pump sealing rings” in the vehicles to deteriorate. Though Mazda and the NHTSA have not received any complaints of accidents or injuries involving the recalled vehicles, Mazda is expected to address the problem by offering a free replacement of the pump sealing ring in the vehicles.

Automaker giant General Motors Co. (GM) issued recall to at least 51,640 new models of Sports Utility Vehicles (SUV) affected by a software issue that may fail to give accurate fuel gas reading, an article from Bloomberg said on May 4.
The recall affects the 2014 models of Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave, and GMC Acadia SUVs that may have a defect in the engine-control module. Drivers of the recalled SUVs may unexpectedly run out of gas, or experience a sudden engine stop while in motion. Sudden stalling of the engine is dangerous and may lead to accidents. GM said they will conduct a fuel system recalibration in the three affected SUV models for free.

Due to a problem with the wiring of a battery, BMW has issued an international recall of 1.3 million vehicles. In the United States, 367,000 vehicles have been recalled.
The problem stems from the battery cable connectors located in the trunks of certain models. BMW 5-and6-Series that were produced between 2004 and 2010 make up the American recall. These cable connectors could potentially have been connected improperly, and therefore pose a threat of overheating and fires.
One case of a fire has been reported so far in the United States. BMW plans on individually notifying the owners of these defective vehicles throughout the month of April.
