The electronics for the hybrid system have their own unique cooling needs. The coolant pump for this system can fail resulting in overheating of the hybrid electronics. As a result the powertrian may shut down causing the vehicle to stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the Motor Electronics Coolant (MEC) Pump with an improved "brushless" pump to correct this concern.

Engine, July 26, 2012
RepairPal Expert Overview:

Mazda Tribute models equipped with a V6 engine are being recalled because inadequate clearance between the engine cover and the speed control cable connector could result in a stuck throttle when the accelerator pedal is fully or almost fully depressed. This risk exists regardless of whether or not the speed control (cruise control) is used.

A stuck throttle may result in very high vehicle speeds and make it difficult to stop or slow the vehicle, which could result in a crash. Dealers will correct this concern by increasing the engine cover clearance. Remedy parts are expected to be available in mid-August. Until then, dealers will disconnect the speed control cable as an interim remedy if parts are not available at the time of an owner's service appointment. The Mazda recall number is 6812G.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The brake master cylinder reservoir cap can leak brake fluid. Leaking brake fluid can come in contact with the antilock brake system (ABS) module wiring harness. As a result, corrosion can develop in the module electrical connector, which can cause the connector to melt, smoke, or possibly catch fire. Dealers will replace the brake master cylinder reservoir cap and modify the ABS electrical system to correct this concern. The Mazda recall number is 6712A.
