Automotive News is reporting that Mazda has notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that it will recall over 200,000 Mazda3 and Mazda5 models due to faulty power-assist steering pumps and pipes. The recall announcement comes two months after NHTSA launched an investigation into 33 complaints of power steering failures. In three cases, the loss of steering control led to an auto accident that could have been prevented. Mazda stated that the recall affects all 2007-2009 models of Mazda3 and Mazda5 automobiles manufactured between April 2007 and November 2008.
