2019 Mazda 3 recalled

The 2019 Mazda 3 has been recalled over concerns about the wheel studs. According to the company, the wheel studs may not have been fully seated during manufacture, leaving a small gap between the studs and hub assembly. Continued use could make the nuts come loose, or knock and clunk. Mazda says the stability of the car could be affected, increasing the risk of accident. A total of 3323 cars are included – a VIN list is attached here.
