Mazda North American Operations is recalling 187,798 model year 2016-2018 Mazda3 vehicles.
A defective windshield wiper relay may cause the windshield wipers to become inoperative, reducing the driver's visibility.
Reduced visibility while driving can increase the risk of crash.
What to do
Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front body control module with a new module which uses an improved wiper relay design free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin June 3, 2019.
Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500, option 4. Mazda's number for this recall is 3219D.
