It appears it isn’t just Toyota and Lexus getting all the bad press. Mazda too has come under fire following the announcement that it will recall more than 90,000 compact cars, mostly in Japan and China.

The recall affects customers of the Mazda3 compact sedan and hatchback, currently the company’s most popular model, and includes those vehicles that were produced from January 2006 to March 2009.

The issue is in regards to an oil hose being placed too close to a radiator shroud panel, which because of friction when travelling on bumpy roads can cause the hose to leak.

"The company has received two cases of complaints due to the problem, both in China," a company spokesman revealed to the AFP. "No accident because of it has been reported."

Mazda is yet to confirm if the recall on its Mazda3 will lead to other markets, including the U.S. Stay tuned for an update.

  3. Well, we can be sure that if it DOES spread to the U.S., it'll be absolutely all over the media. "Will Your Mazda Kill You? Recall Of Deadly Compacts. News at 11." Sheesh. Stuff gets recalled all the time, the hype is ridiculous now.
