Mazda is recalling over 176,000 vehicles across the 3 and CX-3 lines due to a defect with their reversing camera.

“If the rear-view camera display does not clearly display the rear-view image as intended, it could increase the risk of an accident, causing serious injury or death to any persons located behind the vehicle.”
