Several hundred thousand Mazda vehicles are being recalled in China.
The recall, which has been made by Mazda’s Chinese partner FAW, is due to concerns over potentially unsafe airbags.
These were supplied by Japanese company Takata, who have been at the centre of global concerns about the safety of some of their products.
Over 680,000 Mazda 6 cars will be impacted by the recall. These have all been made in China between 2008 and last year.
There have been several high profile recalls in China over recent months.
In May, we reported that a fuse fault had forced the recall of more than 600,000 vehicles for China FAW Group, Volkswagen’s joint venture partner in China.
Amongst the recalled vehicles were Golfs produced between 2009 and 2014, and Sagitars manufactured between 2010 and 2012.
It is believed that the fuse issue could potentially lead to headlight failure on these models.
Then, in late June, Aston Martin recalled cars around the world as a result of problems with its Vantage model in China.
The recall is of nearly 1,700 Vantages globally, following a number of incidents in which the vehicles lost power after stalling at speed.
News agency Reuters reported that the problem could impact models which are fitted with Sportshift I and Sportshift II gearboxes.
Speaking to Reuters, Aston Martin Chief executive Andy Palmer said that the fact that the recall started in China…
“…demonstrates the importance of China, the sophistication of the customer and the diligence of the authority there.”
