Mazda to recall 70K RX-8 sports cars for fuel pump defect, fire risk.

Automotive News (11/15, 188K) says Mazada will be issuing a recall for “about 70,000 RX-8 sports cars from the 2004-08 model years...because of an issue with fuel pump sealing rings that may leak and catch fire.” On Tuesday, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration posted on its website, “The affected vehicles have fuel pump sealing rings that may deteriorate due to exposure to heat from the engine or exhaust pipe...which in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire.”
