About 15,746 new Mazda3 units in Canada are being recalled over automatic braking errors.
The recalled vehicles are the 2019 and 2020 model years of the Mazda3, which happens to be Mazda's best-selling car. This isn't the first time Mazda is recalling its 2019 Mazda3. In July Last year, the same model was recalled over defective wheel lug nut.

Mazda said the affected vehicles can suddenly come to a halt though there're no objects in sight or risk of a crash. The automaker said the braking system software wasn't properly programmed, leading to the Mazda3 falsely detecting objects in front of it. When this happens, the braking system will automatically stop the car, thereby increasing the chance of a rear-end crash.

Defective Mazda3 owners shall, afterward, bring their cars to their car dealers where a braking system update will be done. Also, the instrument cluster of some of the affected cars will be reprogrammed or replaced.
