(AP) Mazda is recalling 161,400 midsize cars in the U.S. because the doors can open while they're being driven.


The recall affects Mazda 6 cars from the 2009 through 2013 model years. The company says the door latch mounting screws can loosen. That can stop the doors from latching. If the latches come loose, a door ajar light will warn drivers.


Mazda traced the problem to improper tightening at the factory or uneven door surfaces. The company will notify owners and dealers will put on a thread-locking adhesive and tighten the screws. The recall will start around Oct. 18.


Owners with questions can contact Mazda at (800) 222-5500.
