(Reuters) - Russia’s standards agency said on Thursday it had been informed by Mazda about a voluntary recall of 8,090 Mazda 6 cars sold between August 2002 and August 2008.

It said the reason for the recall was a possible problem with high humidity that could affect safety air bags.

“We care about the quality our cars,” said a spokeswoman at Mazda’s Russian office.

Mazda has a market share of 1.7 percent in Russia, according to the Association of European Business (AEB).

The company sold 11,638 units in January to May 2018, up 32.6 percent on January to May 2017 figures, AEB reported.
