These recalls are important and should not be ignored because the factors that led to the recalls include crash and injury hazards.
To the readers who own scooters, we ask you to consider looking at auto recall news every now and then. Recently, the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that Chicago Scooter Company recalled all units of the 2016 and 2017 go. scooters that were manufactured between September 22, 2015 and May 13, 2016. These vehicles come with front wheel bearings that could fail while in use, which could end up affecting handling. If that occurs while in use, difficulties to handle the scooter may lead to a crash.
The company has stated that all impacted vehicles will be inspected entirely for free. If necessary, the entire front wheel will be replaced, also for free.
Consumers with the recalled vehicles should be contacted directly in the near future, but if they are not, they should reach out to Chicago Scooter directly by calling their customer service line.
While the scooter recall does not impact a great number of vehicles, the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced that over 580,000 Mazda vehicles have been recalled over an injury risk. This recall matters because it impacts a series of very popular vehicles.
The recall report indicates that all units of the 2016 CX-3 vehicles manufactured between June 1, 2015 and December 26, 2015, the 2013 through 2016 CX-5 vehicles manufactured between December 15, 2011 and December 26, the 2015 2010 through 2013 Mazda3 and Mazdaspeed3 vehicles that were manufactured between November 18, 2008 and June 8, 2013, and all units of the 2012 through 2015 Mazda5 vehicles manufactured between October 26, 2010 and June 22, 2015 were fitted with liftgate support struts that could corrode while in use.
If that occurs, the Mazda vehicles in question will experience issues that could cause the liftgate to drop unexpectedly, putting the user in danger of injury.
While the company has announced that all impacted vehicles will be repaired in the near future, owners will not be contacted until after November 1st. A second notice should follow once the company has enough parts to have all recalled vehicles repaired.
Consumers who are concerned about their safety should contact Mazda directly for more information on this matter.
