Mazda is reportedly looking to issue out a recall for the Mazda3 compact in its European and Asian markets. Automotive news says that the carmaker has filed a report with the Japanese transport ministry stating that driving on rough roads for extended periods of time can cause the car's oil hose to rub against the radiator's protective panel.

In a worst case scenario, this could cause oil to leak should the hose break. Mazda is currently deciding how to repair this problem in all markets and plans to issue the official recall in the near future.
