New Mazda6 Recalled Due to Fire Risk
The car's electricity converter is prone to overheating and could, in some conditions, ignite the car. Fortunately, no such incident has been reported, though a mandatory global recall was issued.
The Japanese carmaker will bring some 15,000 models back to their dealers where the faulty components will be replaced free of charge. The faulty DC/DC converter is located under the driver's side seat in LHD cars and passenger seat in RHD cars. It reduces the Voltage of the current coming from the generator from 25V to the 12V used by appliances.
