A whopping 2.3 million cars are set to be recalled by Japanese vehicle manufacturer Mazda in the coming days after two separate problems were uncovered.

Mazda 3s, CX-3s and CX-5 crossover SUVs are the models to be taken back to get the necessary modifications that will ensure the safety of the vehicle.

For more than 100,000 of the cars, the issue is a malfunctioning microchip embedded in diesel engines, that may cause them to stop working.

Mazda say this problem has not caused any accidents.

For the majority of the vehicles being recalled, however, the problem is to do with the paint on a hydraulic arm that allows the car's rear doors to extend.

It was found that the paint may allow the arm to rust and thus stop working.

In July, 30,000 Mazda vehicles were recalled in New Zealand after an ignition fault was discovered with the potential to generate a fire - just days after Mitsubishi and Toyota were forced to recall thousands of vehicles worldwide.
