Mazda Ireland Recalls Cars Due to AEB Issue


Source: Extra.ie post

DUBLIN, Ireland – Mazda Motor Ireland is recalling certain Mazda 3 and Mazda CX 30 vehicles because they may stop unexpectedly due to issues with the SBS automatic emergency braking (AEB) system.

There are 546 units affected by the recall, which warns the failure of the SBS could cause the vehicle to stop abruptly and precipitate a rear-end collision.

Late last year a similar recall covered some 35,000 Mazda 3 models in the United States.

The affected Mazda 3 vehicles were manufactured between November 2018 and October 2019, whilst the affected Mazda CX 30 vehicles were manufactured between April and October 2019.

Incorrect programming of the SBS control software may cause the vehicle to falsely detect an obstacle in front of the vehicle while driving. In certain cases, the SBS control software may automatically apply the vehicle brakes to prevent or reduce damage from a collision, even though no collision is imminent.

If the SBS automatic emergency braking system unexpectedly activates while driving, the risk of a rear-end crash from a following vehicle may increase. There is a warning alarm sound and warning message displayed in the multi-information and active driving displays when this defect occurs.
