    Mazda recalls 228,000 cars because brake may not hold

    http://www.cnbc.com/2017/06/30/mazda...-not-hold.html

    Mazda is recalling nearly 228,000 cars in the U.S. because the parking brake may not fully release or could fail to hold the cars, increasing the risk of a crash.

    The recall covers certain Mazda 6 cars from the 2014 and 2015 model years and the Mazda 3 from 2014 through 2016.

    The company says water can get into the brake caliper, causing a shaft to corrode and bind. If that happens, the parking brake can get stuck in the on position or fail to fully engage. That can let the cars roll unexpectedly if parked on a slope.

    That's the handbrake? I strongly disliked the electronic brake in my Mz6.
