Spider leads Mazda recall
MAZDA has a creepy crawly culprit in its new safety recall – a spider. After discovering spider webs in the vents, the Japanese automaker is recalling more than 50,000 Mazda6 cars from the 2009-2010 model years in the United States and 15,000 vehicles in Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico. The company said a spider could weave a web in a vent connected to the fuel tank system and clog up the tank’s ventilation. Pressure on the fuel tank could lead to a crack, causing fuel leakage and the risk of a fire.
