Mazda is set to recall 640,000 vehicles across the globe. There is reportedly a problem with some diesel engines' valve springs. 

The company said it would recall about 230,000 vehicles in Japan and 410,000 from other markets around the globe. Mazda doesn't sell diesel vehicles in the U.S. 

It's unclear how much this recall is going to cost the automaker or what vehicles are covered under the recall. Newsy has reached out to Mazda for more information.

Reuters reports Japanese automakers are dealing with increasing costs due to issues like faulty components and testing misconduct. 

This is just the latest Mazda recall. In July, the company recalled nearly 270,000 vehicles because of defective Takata airbags. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has confirmed at least 15 people in the U.S. have died when their defective Takata airbag exploded. At least 250 people in the U.S. have been injured by the airbags that also have been known to shoot shrapnel when exploding.
