The mirror glass wasn’t glued to its housing well enough during manufacturing, the company said. That leaves the mirror at risk of falling out of its housing without warning, potentially leaving a driver with reduced rear visibility and an increased risk of a crash.

There haven’t been any reports of accidents or injuries caused by the defect, Mazda said.

The recall affects 22,571 vehicles, according to Mazda.

Another recall last month affecting more than 262,000 Mazda vehicles also included Mazda3 cars. The company said the recalled vehicles had a software problem that could cause the engines in some SUVs and cars to stall unexpectedly.

The company also recalled nearly 190,000 Mazda3 compact cars in April, saying an issue could cause the windshield wipers to fail.
