The RX-8 has been recalled twice.

First up, the fuel pump pipes in certain 2004-2008 model years can crack due to heat from the engine and the exhaust. Considering the engine and exhaust will always be hot, this isn’t good news. Especially if you’re not a fan of gas leaking onto hot surfaces (hint: you shouldn’t be).

About 70,000 cars will need to be recalled with most having already been previously recalled for the same issue. Last time Mazda focused on busted seals rather than the pipes themselves.

A Smaller, but Still Dangerous Recall

Mazda is also recalling over 34,000 of its 2004 RX-8s with ball joint sockets in the front suspension that can crack, resulting in a sudden loss of control.

According to the automaker, a faulty caulking process is to blame and the issue is most likely to occur under heavier loads. And you thought loading all those mulch bags in your car wouldn’t be a problem.

Both recalls are expected to begin on July 30, 2017.
