In the days leading up to the November 1 launch of Metro cars, a series of updates to the company’s website were announced.
It’s unclear how many of the vehicles were affected, but the automaker’s Twitter account has now released a statement saying that “about 5 million of the Metro vehicles in the U.S. have been impacted” by the recall.
The statement said that the “most affected” cars have been manufactured in Japan, with more than 10 million vehicles in production.
The announcement comes days after the automaking giant recalled about half of its vehicles in October, citing “a new mold of mold in some of the body panels,” which it described as a possible cause of the mold.
The company has since recalled the remaining cars.
Metro said that “as a result of this recall, our sales, net profit and operating results have decreased” and that it expects to “be able to make significant progress in meeting our long-term business goals.”
Metro cars were introduced in 2017, but have only been on the road in limited capacity since the vehicles launched in 2020.
