Mazda Motor Corp. is recalling 215,000 Mazda3 and Mazda5 vehicles to fix problems with the power-steering system that could lead to a crash. The Japanese automaker told the government the recall involved model year s2007-2009 Mazda3 and Mazda5 vehicles built from April 2007 through November 2008.
According to Mazda the vehicles could have a sudden loss of power-steering assist, making it more difficult for the driver to steer the vehicle. The automaker says that could increase the risk of a crash. The government had opened an investigation into steering problems in the vehicles in June. At the time, NHTSA had 33 complaints alleging steering problems, including three crashes.
