Mazda Recalling 4.9 Million vehicles; ignition switches can cause fire

Mazda is joining Toyota in a worldwide recall today, saying that they are recalling 4.9 million older vehicles, including 1.36 million in the U.S., because ignition switches could overheat and catch fire.

Mazda models affected are:

  • 1990-1996 323 and Protégé
  • 1993-1998 626
  • 1993-1995 929
  • 1993-1997 MX-6
  • 1989 to 1998 MPV
  • 1992-1993 MX-3.

Mazda says it put too much grease on electrical contact points in the switches when the cars were manufactured. The grease can carbonize and reduce electrical insulation. The company says continuous use can cause electricity to flow between the points and make the switches overheat. That can cause smoke and possible fire.
