NEW YORK - Automakers Nissan and Mazda have announced separate recalls that total nearly 260,000 cars.
Mazda warned that doors in up to 98,000 Mazda6 sedans could open while the cars are in motion. The company blamed door latching screws used in model years 2009 through 2013. The company said dealers would apply a thread-locking adhesive, replace any missing screws and tighten them.
Nissan said two of its Infiniti model cars could stall while in motion. The M35 and M45 sedans of model years 2006 to 2010 -- over 161,000 cars -- could have accelerator pedal sensors that deteriorate. The sensor could send incorrect signals to the engine, causing it to stall while the vehicle comes to a stop or is idling, Nissan said.
Nissan has previously recalled vehicles, including some Infiniti series models from 2005 and 2006, for stalling issues.
Both automakers said they would notify vehicle owners this fall. Neither reported any injuries as a result of the issues.
Toyota also announced a recall this week of 615,000 Sienna minivans, saying a mechanism issue could allow some vehicles to roll away when parked.
