Mazda MPV Recalls

Recall # Subject Date Model
2905L Liftgate Stay Dampers and Stud Bolt Replacement 04/2005 2000-2004
Summary:

Note:: Note: This recall is applicable to Canadian vehicles only.

On certain vehicles, the liftgate stay dampers and stud bolts may rust and stick together, causing the stud bolds to break off. In the worst case, this condition may allow the liftgate to suddenly drop during opening or closing, injuring the operator. Correction: Dealers will replace the left and right dampers and stud bolts.

SSP60 Fan Control Module 08/2004 2002-2003
Summary: It is possible the soldering strength on a terminal in the fan control module may be insufficient, causing a crack during use. If this failure occurs, the cooling fans may stop operating, causing the coolant temperature to rise, or the cooling fans may continue operating and may drain the vehicle's battery. Owners of affected vehicles will be notified by first class mail beginning August 30, 2004.
2204H PCV Hose Emission Recall 08/2004 2002-2003
Summary: On some 2002-2003 MPV vehicles, the Positive Crankcase Ventilation (PCV) hose may fail, causing rough idling and/or the Malfunction Indicator Lamp (MIL) to illuminate. If this failure occurs, the vehicle may not pass applicable emissions standards. Mazda has decided to conduct an Emission Recall Campaign to replace the PCV hose with a modified hose.
2004F Actuator Cable Recall 07/2004 2000-2001
Summary:

On certain minivans equipped with cruise control, the cruise control actuator cable may be broken due to insufficient strength. Also included are certain 2000-2001 minivans equipped with cruise control built between march 31, 1999 and march 31, 2001, that have had the cruise control repaired and possibly had a defective cable installed during that repair.

It is possible that the broken actuator cable may be out of position and could interfere with the operation of the accelerator cable, preventing a decrease in engine speed while driving, increasing the risk of a crash.

Dealers will replace the actuator cable. Owner notification is expected to begin during June 2004. Owners should contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.

2104F 2004 MPV FMVSS Certification Label Recall 06/2004 2004
Summary:

The tire inflation pressure indicated on the vehicle certification label is not correct. The labels show the maximum tire pressure as 240 kPa/32 psi when it should be shown as 240 kPa/35 psi. As a result of this error, the load ratios for the 205/65R15 94H and the 215/60R16 95H tires exceed the levels permitted by FMVSS 120.

If the tire is operated in an under-inflated condition, the load carrying capacity of the vehicle may be compromised, increasing the risk of a crash.

Owners will be provided with a corrected label that they can apply to their vehicle, or they can have a dealer install the label, if desired. Owner notification began on July 16, 2004. Owners should contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500, option #4.

1804C Airbag warning labels 13/02/2004 2004
Summary:

Certain minivans fail to comply with the requirements of federal motor vehicle safety standard No. 208, occupant crash protection. Some of these vehicles were produced with air bag warning labels intended for the Canadian market. Thus, the labels contain warnings in both English and French. As a result, the area of the English warning is only 16 square centimeters, as opposed to the 30 square centimeters required by the standard.

Owners will be provided with air bag caution labels and installation instructions. Owners should contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.

1604B 2004 MPV & 2004 RX-8 Front Passenger-Side Airbag Recall 02/2004 2004
Summary: Certain 2004 MPV and 2004 RX-8 vehicles were produced with improperly wired front passenger-side airbags. The result of this problem is that the airbag will not provide adequate protection in the event of a crash. Mazda has decided to conduct a recall campaign to correct the wiring by installing a new wiring harness in the front passenger-side airbag system on all affected vehicles.
2404K Throttle Valve Freezing 2004 2000-2001
Summary:

Note: This recall is applicable to Canadian vehicles only.

On certain vehicles equipped with a 2.5L V6 Duratec engine, while driving at a constant speed on the highway, it is possible that the engine speed will not decrease when releasing the accelerator pedal due to a frozen throttle valve. This condition occurs at ambient temperatures from -30 to -40 degrees Celsius. The vehicle can be brought to a full stop by depressing the brake pedal. Correction: Dealers will replace the intake manifold and PCV hose with modified parts which will change the layout of the PCV hose system.

1103F Fog Lights (Dealer Invenory Only) 02/06/2003 2002-2003
Summary:

On certain mini vans and passenger vehicles, the socket holder in the fog lights is installed in the lamp casing using pressure. During operation of the fog light, the heat from the bulb can expand the socket holder. The expansion can force the socket holder rearward. After repeatedly being subject to this expansion, if the fog light is also subjected to vibration during vehicle operation, the socket holder with the bulb holder and the wiring harness may separate from the fog light casing.

Should this occur, the bulb socket and the harness can drop inside the bumper and in the worst case, the heat generated can cause the bumper to burn.

Dealers will install a spring to prevent the socket holder from coming off the lamp case. Owner notification is expected to begin during June 2003. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.

0903C Front Fog Lights 06/03/2003 2002-2003
Summary:

On certain mini vans equipped with front fog lights, the fog light bulb socket may have been installed improperly.

If the vehicle continues to be used with this condition, the bulb socket and the wiring harness may separate from the fog light housing if exposed to shock and/or vibration and drop inside the bumper. Should this occur, the operation of the fog light may then cause the bumper to burn.

Dealers will inspect the installation condition of the fog light bulb assembly, and repair it when necessary. Owner notification began March 31, 2003. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.

Customers can also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s auto safety hotline at 1-888-DASH-2-DOT (1-888-327-4236).

0802H Passenger air bag may not deploy in a collision 14/08/2002 2001
Summary: On certain passenger vehicles, some of the passenger air bag modules were not properly welded and may not deploy in a collision.

The seat occupant may not be properly protected in the event of a collision, increasing the risk of personal injury.

Dealers will replace the passenger air bag module. Owner notification is expected to begin during August 2002. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.
0602D Incorrect gross axle weight rating indicated on certification label 26/03/2002 2002
Summary: Certain minivans fail to comply to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety standard No. 120, "Tire Selection and Rims for Motor Vehicles Other Than Passenger Cars." An incorrect gross axle weight rating (GAWR) was indicated on the certification label.

Owners will be mailed accurate certification labels and inserts for the owner's manual. Owner notification is expected to begin during April 2002. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.
0502A Brakeline Proportioning Valve Replacement on vans NOT equipped with ABS 02/01/2002 2000-2001
Summary: Certain mini vans without anti-lock braking systems (ABS) fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety standard No. 135, "Passenger Car Brake Systems." Due to inappropriate brake pipe layout, these vehicles do not meet the brake stopping distance with partial failure requirements of the standard.

If partial failure occurred in the braking system, the stopping distance of the vehicle could increase, increasing the risk of a crash.

Dealers will modify the brake system to correct the problem.
SSP43 Front Bumper Reinforcement 09/2000 2000
Summary: As a result of tests performed on the 2000-model MPV by an independent testing facility, Mazda found that the front bumper, despite meeting Federal passenger car bumper standards, did not perform up to expectations in a low-speed impact. Mazda has redesigned the front bumper system, and MPVs with the redesigned and upgraded bumper system should begin arriving in Mazda showrooms by the end of April.
