Mazda is issuing a global recall of about 2.2 million vehicles due to potential problems with rear gates, the company says.

Japan's fifth-largest carmaker is recalling 394,000 units in Japan and about 1.8 million overseas. The recall affects six models, including the CX-5 and the Mazda 3 sedan, it said.

The carmaker wants to fix a problem that could lead to corrosion on the tailgate, it said.

Separately, the carmaker is recalling 107,000 vehicles in Japan because of a computer problem with diesel engines.

A spokeswoman said the carmaker was not aware of any injuries or fatalities related to the latest recalls.
