Mazda recalls 190,000 CX-7 vehicles in U.S.

by SpeedLux

Mazda Motor Corp is going to recall 190,000 of its CX-7 sport utility vehicles from the model years from 2007 to 2012 in the United States due to a concern that may trigger a loss of steering control, U.S. security regulators stated on Friday.

“In the affected automobiles, water may enter the front suspension ball joint fittings,” the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) stated in a declaration on its site.

“If the water is infected with salt, such as from driving on snowy roads that have been treated, the ball joint might rust and separate from the lower control arm, leading to a loss of steering control.”

Mazda informed regulators it will work to repair CX-7s in cold-weather U.S. states first.

In July 2015, Mazda had recalled about 193,000 of its larger CX-9 SUVs from model years 2007 to 2014, for a similar problem.

No reports of injuries or crashes in the CX-7 SUVs have been made yet.
