Mazda, Toyota, Cadillac and Chrysler Lead This Month's Recall Announcements
Several large automakers have announced automotive recalls over the past few weeks, with hundreds of thousands of vehicles affected by the resulting various safety campaigns. Perhaps the largest issue is the windshield wiper problem that has prompted Mazda to write letters to the owners of just under half a million owners of the popular Mazda Mazda3 sedan and hatchback. Versions of the compact Mazda MAZDA3 produced between 2008 and 2010 have demonstrated a problem with an electronic component which controls their wiper systems, which in the worst case scenario can cause the windshield wipers to stop working completely. If this were to occur while driving in rainy or snowing conditions, the results could range from inconvenient to disastrous, particularly if traveling at highway speeds.
