Crash Risks Tied to Mazda, Kia Recalls

Crash risks have been named in at least two auto recalls launched by major automakers over the past couple of days.

According to the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, these recalls were launched after the companies learned that the recalled vehicles may expose consumers to crash risks, which could then lead to serious consequences.

According to the first recall announcement to be launched with the help of the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Kia Motors America has launched a recall campaign that impacts all units of the 2015 and 2016 K900 vehicles. These units, reports show, come with LED headlights that could fail and end up flickering or turning off completely when the multi-function light switch is set on “Auto.” If that’s the case, the driver may end up experiencing visibility issues, increasing the risk of accidents and injuries.

In order to make sure this issue does not expose drivers to serious crash risks, the company will be having all multi-function switches replaced entirely for free. The company will begin contacting impacted vehicle owners after May 27.

The second recall consumers should not ignore impact Mazda vehicles.

The announcement published by the NHTSA shows that the 2016 CX-3, 2013 through 2015 CX-9, 2013 and 2014 Mazda2, and 2014 through 2016 CX-5 vehicles have been fitted with certain mounting nuts and bolts that keep the front strut assemblies attached to the steering knuckles that may become loose. If that occurs, the steering knuckle may come separated, and the driver may lose control over the vehicle’s steering. If that’s the case, the driver may end up being involved in an auto accident.

The lower mounting nuts and bolts impacted by this recall will be replaced as soon as consumers bring their vehicles to authorized dealers. Any repair and inspection should be performed entirely for free.

Mazda has announced that all impacted vehicle owners will be contacted directly after May 20. The recalled vehicles should be repaired promptly in order to avoid accidents. If you have any concerns associated with this recall, contact Mazda as soon as you can or click here for more details.
