Default 52,000 Mazda6 sedans recalled over... fear of spiders?!

Filed under: Sedan, Etc., Recalls, Safety, Mazda


2009 Mazda6 - Click above for high-res image galllery

Mazda and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have succumbed to a bit of arachnophobia. The Japanese automaker has issued a recall for 52,000 Mazda6 sedans due to potential obstruction in the vehicles' evaporative systems. Apparently, the evaporative canister vent line of certain 2009 and 2010 Mazda6 models is the perfect home for a species of spider. If the web clogs the line, excessive negative pressure may build up in the vehicle's fuel tank, which is likely to eventually cause a crack in the tank itself.

Needless to say, a cracked fuel tank is a bad thing.

Mazda says that it will inspect the vent line and clean it as necessary. Additionally, dealers will install a vent in the line to prevent the itsy-bitsy spider from crawling back down into the line and making a home for himself. The recall is expected to begin on or around March 25 of this year. Hit the jump for the full NHTSA notice. Thanks to all for the tips!

Yeah, I got the email from three different co-workers. Maybe I need a life...

But how nice of Mazda. They can recall for a spider, but not for defective rear diff mounts. They can recall for the Yellow Sack Spider, but not for defective fan control modules.

FUCK YOUOOUUU MAZDA!!

Will Mazda void my warranty if I run an aftermarket spider?

this is funny because the news had this story before us dealer folks did... you should see the sst(special service tool) they sent us... its a 3 ft long metal pipe cleaner to run down the breather vent to take out any cobwebs...

since when are spider webs air tight enough to crack a fuel tank?
