There is a cooler for the transmission that transmission fluid travels through. This cooler keeps the transmission fluid from overheating. There are tubes that carry the fluid from the transmission to this cooler. These tubes were manufactured without enough corrosion protection. If the tubes corrode, fluid may leak. Leaking transmission fluid may pose a fire hazard.
The fuel gauge may read incorrectly, showing fuel when the tank is empty. This could cause the vehicle to run out of gas and stall, increasing the risk of a crash.
The brake pedal is mounted under the driver's dash area onto a bracket. At this point of mounting, there is a pin that could slide out. This could cause the pedal to detach from the bracket. If this happens, the brake pedal would feel unusual and loose, and braking action may be compromised.
A problem with the fuel tank may cause the gas gauge never to read below a quarter tank of gas even when the tank might be empty. If the vehicle runs out of gas in traffic, you might become stranded or get into an accident.
Under severe conditions, water may enter through the driver's window and reach the window switch, causing smoke, melting, and fire.
A wiring connector under the passenger side dash board may be accessible to kicking by the front seat passenger. If this occurs, the connector may overheat and possibly short circuit, which could cause a fire.
The front door can remain in the unlatched position. As a result, a front door may open unexpectedly while the vehicle is in motion, increasing the risk of injury.
The driver may not be able to control the heating and ventilation for the vehicle. If this happens when the defrost system is needed, visibility could be reduced, which could lead to a crash.
The heated seats are made up of wiring, switches, and the element, which is the part that gets hot in order to heat the seat. Mazda has found that there is a possibility for the seat heater circuit to overheat and cause damage to the seat cushion and a risk of fire.
The air bag safety restraint system in the vehicle has a feature that deactivates the passenger side front air bag if it detects a child in the right front seat. This same feature has a programmed flaw, which erroneously illuminates the air bag warning light if a passenger over 240 pounds sits in the right front seat. When the air bag warning light is on, the air bag system is non-functional, which could result in more significant injuries in a crash.
The tire pressure label information may be incorrect. Improperly inflated tires can affect tire durability and vehicle stability, increasing the risk of a crash.
