DETROIT (AP) – Mazda is recalling nearly 190,000 compact Mazda 3 cars in the United States, with windshield wipers likely to fail.

says in documents released Saturday by US National Highway Traffic Safety that the recall concerns cars from the 2016 to 2018 model years.

The Japanese automaker attributed the problem to metal deposits that could block a wiper relay, break the wipers, and limit driver visibility. The company said it did not report any accidents or injuries because of this problem.

Dealers will replace the front wiper control module at no cost to owners starting June 3rd.
