HA NOI (Biz Hub) — Local carmaker Truong Hai Automobile JSC (Thaco) is recalling 4,809 Mazda2 cars to fix a fault related to the check-engine light.

The programme will begin on November 28. All units produced by VinaMazda from August 24, 2015 to September 26, 2016 will be checked for faults and fixed.

According to reports, after running for a period, a deposit is somehow produced on the injection holes of injectors which lead to congestion and less injection amount. Based on the feedback signals from sensors of the engine control system and the check-engine light, an illumination phenomenon appears.

The main reason behind this is the deposit, which is difficult to wipe off while the engine is running by a self-cleaning mechanism. The check-engine light illumination phenomenon may cause poor engine performance, poor acceleration or engine vibration when the car is running.

The cars under the recall programme all have an engine displacement of 1,500cc, for both sedan and hatchback versions. It is estimated that the time required to fix the fault will be four and a half hours.

In June this year, VinaMazda recalled more than 10,000 Mazda3 cars for a similar fault. — VNS
