Mazda has recalled 15,000 cars globally to address a flaw which could result in a fire under the passenger seat.

The brand has suspended deliveries of its medium-sized 6 because of a faulty part inside an electrical converter that “may cause overheating and in a worse case scenario, a fire”.

Mazda says two cars have caught fire, one in Europe and one in Australia. The cars were with dealers at the time, and the problems are understood to have occurred in the last week.

More than 1500 Australian owners will be affected by the recall. Mazda says it will provide them with alternative transport while repairs are performed.

The component is part of Mazda’s i-ELOOP system that recovers energy to help reduce fuel use.
