I did think there were any recalls or service bulletins regarding the fan belts but I checked any way. It is wise to check the fan belts periodically. It is simple to visual inspect them. Serpentine belts especially the original equipment Mazda belts usually last at least until the timing belt is due. Usually the belts will last 90,000 to 100,000 miles.
