Krohn & Moss, Ltd. Consumer Law Center ® has become aware that Mazda is recalling 2.2 million cars and SUVs worldwide because the rear hatches can fall on people and injure them.
The recall covers certain 2010 through 2013 Mazda 3 compact cars, as well as 2012 through 2015 Mazda 5 vans. Also included are certain 2013 to 2016 CX-5 and 2016 CX-3 SUVs. More than 759,000 vehicles in the U.S. and Canada are affected.
Mazda says the corrosion protection coating applied to the hatch lift supports at the factory wasn’t sufficient. Over time, water containing road salt can get into the supports, causing them to corrode and break. Dealers will replace both lift supports. Customers will be notified in September or October about when to bring their vehicles in for repairs.
