The recall affects 2015 and 2016 model Mazda 6’s in the United States and Canada.

So far, there have been no reported accidents related to the recall, but there is an increased risk of a crash if a driver loses power steering.

Wires under the front seat can short out because of welding debris, according to U.S. government documents, ABC News reported.

Warning lights in Mazda 6 sedans should alert owners to the problem.
