Wipers can break down suddenly, the cause of this is a relay failure. As the expertise established, the node design and electrical circuit have a number of errors, which they hope to eliminate during the recall.
This service campaign is becoming one of the largest in respect of Mazda cars for the last time – 187,798 cars are recalled in the American market. It is noteworthy that we are talking about fairly fresh copies, which confirms the findings of the investigation about the mistakes of designers, since it is too early to talk about normal wear and tear – all cars were released from July 20, 2015 to July 18, 2017.

They burn and wear at an accelerated rate, the relay overheats, which can result, including to his refusal and, as a result, the exit of their building janitors.
