A Spider-Based Recall 

Friday, March 4th, 2011

Here’s a weird one: Mazda is recalling 52,000 Mazda 6’s, due to a problem which can be caused by spiders weaving nests in the car.

Mazda dealers will inspect and clean up the canister vent line and install a spring to prevent this type of spider from entering the vent line.

I’m not exactly how that’s going to work, but I’m picturing some sort of fighter jet ejector seat thing, only sideways and much, much smaller.
