Nissan (NSANF) and Mazda (MZDAY) are recalling over 250,000 cars between the two companies due to recently-discovered manufacturing errors.
CNN reports that over 161,000 Nissan M35 and M45 sedans of model years 2006 to 2010 are being recalled because they could have accelerator pedals that deteriorate over time. The mistake could cause the sensor to send erroneous signals to the engine which could delay the engine while the vehicle comes to a stop or is idling.
Mazda is recalling about 98,000 Mazda6 sedans from model years 2009 to 2013 because of a possible mistake with the vehicles’ door latching screws. The car company will fix the problem by using a thread-locking adhesive and replacing or tightening screws.
There have been several other massive car recalls recently including Toyota’s recall of Tacoma pickups due to a seat belt flaw and GM recalling Chevy Cruzes with faulty brakes.
