Under recall code AM001A, 11,774 Mazda MX-30 electric SUVs will receive a software update.
The operation would only take about twenty minutes. It concerns units built between May 19 and December 4, 2020.
The first anomaly relates to the inadvertent switching on of the brake lights. The phenomenon occurs when the vehicle is moving in reverse. And this without the driver pressing the brake pedal.
The second problem concerns the MHA hill starting device (Motor Hill Assist). In a specific case, the Mazda MX-30 starts rolling as soon as the brake pedal is released. So when this Electric SUV moves from a slippery road to a high-grip surface, and the driver brakes. For example when the road is icy.
This second defect is no longer present on the units assembled after November 17, 2020.
