In the United States, Mazda recalled more than 260,000 sport utility vehicles (SUVs) and cars, after discovering a software problem that could cause engine stall without warning.
The problem would be the mid-size sedans Mazda6 and CX-5 SUVs built between 2018 and 2019, as well as the small cars Mazda3 of 2019.
It was found in the computer that controls some of the cylinder deactivation technology to save fuel from the Japanese manufacturer. People driving would not be prevented if the engine stalls.
Mazda has not yet received reports of accidents or injuries caused by the software problem.
