Mazda North American Operations is recalling 144 2018 Mazda3 cars because they’re equipped with an incorrect exhaust valve spring that may fail and lead to engine stalling, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Mazda dealers will inspect the engines and replace any incorrect exhaust valve springs, NHTSA said. There will be no charge for this service.

The recall is expected to begin Jan. 20. Car owners can reach Mazda customer service at (800) 222-5500. Mazda’s number for this recall is 1717K.
