Spider bite

While we were all busy preparing for this weekend’s exciting Final Four college basketball tourney, Mazda issued a recall on the 2010-2012 model Mazda 6 sedans…

Because of spiders in the gas tank.

I know this sounds like a headline from The Onion, but it’s actually the second time Mazda has recalled the 6 sedan because spiders “may weave a web in the evaporative canister vent line.” Apparently a spider web could create pressure and even a potential crack in the fuel tank.

Wait a minute — is this really a recall?  Or reverse movie product placement?
