July 2, 2019—Mazda has issued a recall for approximately 25,000 examples of the 2019 Mazda3 in both hatchback and sedan form, reported CNET.

The vehicles were produced between Sept. 25, 2018 and April 19, 2019.

According to the automaker, a manufacturing error caused a gap between the hub bolt head and a flange in the hub bearing assembly, which might lead to an eventual loosening of the lug nuts. If no action is taken, the wheel might fall off. Mazda says that a rattling noise will occur before the wheel falls off, and drivers will possibly feel some shuddering in the steering wheel.
