AN AUTO MAKER IS RECALLING SOME VEHICLES AMID FIRE CONCERNS


AN AUTO MAKER IS RECALLING SOME VEHICLES AMID FIRE CONCERNS. MAZDA IS RECALLING SOME 237,000 CX-5 SUVS FROM THE 2014 AND 2015 BECAUSE THE FUEL FILLER PIPE CAN RUPTURE IN A REAR CRASH AND CAUSE A GAS LEAK AND POSSIBLE FIRE. THE PROBLEM WAS DISCOVERED IN CRASH TESTING WHEN THE PIPE RUPTURED AND SPILLED FUEL THAT EXCEEDED LIMITS SET BY CRASH TEST STANDARDS. ACCORDING TO DOCUMENTS FILED BY CANADIAN SAFETY REGULATORS, DEALERS WILL REMOVE A BOLT ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE PIPE, REDIRECTING THE REAR CRASH IMPACT TO PREVENT PIPE RUPTURES. MAZDA SAYS IT HAS NO REPORTS OF ANY FIRES OR INJURIES.
