(CNN) -- Mazda recalled nearly 90,000 vehicles in Japan and China because of a problem with the transmission, a company spokesman said Thursday.
The recall was for about 35,000 of a passenger car called the Axela in Japan, the spokesman said.
The company also recalled in China about 55,000 of the same model that is called the Mazda 3 there.
This comes after Mazda recalled 12,300 CX-9 crossover SUVs over potentially overheating seats in March.
Many car companies have recalled vehicles this year. However, none have come close to Toyota, which recalled more than 8 million cars because of multiple problems.
