Mazda is forced to recall 200,000 units of their vehicle after an issue with the parking brake was pointed out. While 200,000 might not seem like much, it is for Mazda since they only sold about 300,000 units last year.
The recall will affect two of the most popular Mazda vehicles, the Mazda 3 and Mazda 6. According to the report, the Mazda 3 and Mazda 6 will both be recalled after it was reported that the parking brake might have some corrosion issue.
Mazda explains the water could have entered the brake calliper causing the actuator shaft to corrode and in some cases bind. If that happens, the vehicles might roll away unexpectedly when it is on a slope.
Models that will be affected include the 2014 to 2015 Mazda 6 as well as the 2014 to 2016 Mazda 3. Inspections will start on the 21st of August so owners should be hearing from Mazda soon.
