Mazda Motor Corp. says it will recall 42,000 units of its ’04 Mazda3 due to problems with airbag deployment. A crack in the airbag housing unit could allow water to seep into the sensor that activates the bag, resulting in a short circuit, the auto maker says. The problem could result in the airbag failing to deploy.
