Spider Infestation Leads to Recall of 65,000 Mazdas

Under the heading of strangest recalls ever, Mazda is weaving the most bizarre of all: 52,000 Mazda6s in the U.S. are being recalled because of possible spider webs. The fear is that they can lead to blockages that will eventually cause fuel tanks to leak.

Another 13,000 of the cars sold in Puerto Rico, Canada and Mexico are also being recalled
