DUBAI – Mazda distributor Galadari Automobile said more than 2,400 Mazda cars are being recalled in the UAE due to faulty windscreen wipers.
The distributor said that the latest recall affects model 3 cars built between 2015 and 2017. Repairs of the defective vehicles will be free of charge, according to Galadari Automobile.
Officials said that the faulty windscreen wipers, blamed on an electrical switch, may pose as a potential safety hazard by hindering the driver’s visibility.
“We regret to say that wipers may become inoperative in affected vehicles due to a defective relay [switch] that disrupts electrical power to the wiper motor,” Galadari Automobile said in a statement.
“The relay becomes defective when metal deposits form due to heat generated during normal operation which causes eventual sticking of the relay contacts,” it added.
