NEW YORK (NBC) – “Spider webs” prompt the recall of 42-thousand “Mazda 6 cars”. The recall covers 2010 through 2012 models with two-point-five liter engines.
The problem stems from the “yellow sac spider”, which likes to build webs in a vent hose, causing pressure to build in the fuel tank. Mazda recalled the cars in 2011 for the same problem, but the fix didn’t stick.
The automaker will update the vehicles’ software at no cost to prevent pressure from building up in the fuel tank.
