Safety agency investigates Mazda door-latch complaints

DETROIT – U.S. auto safety officials are investigating complaints that doors won’t close properly on more than 39,000 cars made by Mazda.

The probe affects Mazda 6 cars from the 2009 model year.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it has received four complaints that the doors wouldn’t latch. In one case, a passenger door opened while a car was being driven.

The agency said the owners complained that some of the door-latch mounting screws were missing.

The agency will check to see whether the problem is big enough to cause a recall. It also will determine whether the doors have caused any crashes or injuries.
