A couple years’ worth of Mazda6 production about 65,000 cars in all, four-cylinder models only will be recalled because of, um, spiders.
The 6 has since been completely redesigned, but eight-legged critters still like the old one:
Another recall has been issued for 42,000 more of the models built between 2010 and 2012 and equipped with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine.
According to the automaker, there have been nine confirmed sightings of spiders in vent lines since the original recall. It seems that covers were applied at the factory to keep the arachnids from entering, but it hasn’t quite exterminated the problem.
This time, they plan to reflash the car’s computer, to change the purge timing in the charcoal canister that collects fuel vapors.
