The recall will involve RX-8 vehicles manufactured between April 14, 2005 and Feb. 15, 2008, according to the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.
The recall will begin on July 24.
The model in question may have problematic fuel feed pipes. In extreme cases, the oil leaked from the pipes may cause a fire.
Mazda will replace the defective parts free of charge.
Global and Chinese automakers recalled 4.49 million defective vehicles in the first five months of this year, in contrast to 8.8 million vehicles in the first half of 2016.[ Editor: Wang Peiyao ]
