Recall roundup: 15.080 Mazda vehicles image

The Japanese based automaker Mazda has recently announced a recall which will affect 15.080 vehicles of the Bongo, patient Vanette and Delica models, because of a problem with the gas pedal which might lead to a crash if ignored.

According to the Japanese car manufacturer, 15.080 vehicles of the Bongo, Vanette and Delica will be affected by the recall and their owners will have to make a trip back to the dealerships because of the accelerator pedals which might crack and snap because of lacking strength when pressure is put on them laterally.

Mazda says that it hasn’t received any reports regarding accidents or injuries because of the gas pedals problem and the affected models are the Bongo, Vanette and Delica, made between August 2012 and August 2011. The Vanette and Delica vehicles were supplied to Nissan Motor Co. and Mitsubishi Motors Corp. under their original equipment manufacturing agreements.

The Japanese car manufacturer didn’t officially announce when the recall will begin but owners of the above mentioned models will be notified by Mazda and they will have to make a trip back to the dealership to fix the gas pedals problem free of charge.

Besides the three Mazda models, Mitsubishi Motors will also recall 17.613 RVR units made between February 2012 and August 2011 because of an electrical wiring problem which might cause the power assisted steering system to fail, according to the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism.
