Thousands of Mazda vehicles in the US with fire risks recalled
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.
