Mazda MPV recalls

 

For Models: Mazda MPV

Body, Interior & Misc., July 22, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Some vehicles were produced with an airbag warning label intended for the Canadian market. 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 as required by Federal standards. Owners will be provided with correct airbag caution labels and installation instructions which were mailed on July 22, 2004. The Mazda recall number is 1804C.

Body, Interior & Misc., July 16, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The tire information label may show the maximum tire pressure of 32PSI when it should be 35PSI. As a result, the load ratio for the 205/65R15 94H and the 215/60R16 95H tires exceed the levels permitted. 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 they can apply to their vehicle, or they can have a dealer install the label if desired. The Mazda recall number is 2140F.

Body, Interior & Misc., March 5, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The front passenger seat airbag may be wired incorrectly. In this case,  the airbag will not provide adequate protection if the vehicle is involved in a frontal crash. Dealers will install a new wiring harness in the front passenger seat airbag system to correct this concern. This recall began on March 5, 2004. The Mazda recall number is 1604B-A.

For Models: Mazda MPV, Mazda Mazda6, Mazda Miata MX-5

Electrical & Lights, July 14, 2003

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The heat generated by a fog light bulb can cause the socket holder to be pushed rearward in the light casing. This, in combination with the normal vibration during vehicle operation, can cause the bulb holder to separate from the light casing. Should this occur, the bulb socket and harness can drop inside the bumper and possibly result in the bumper being burned by the hot bulb. Dealers will install a spring to prevent the socket holder from separating from the lamp case. The Mazda recall number is 1103F.
