Recall 14V170000

Fuel Tank May Be Overfilled

Recall Details

The fuel tank may allow too much fuel to be filled, which can cause evaporative emissions system contamination and a possible fuel leak. Dealers will inspect and add an adapter to the shut off valve in the fuel tank, along with inspecting the charcoal canister in the evaporative emissions system for fuel contamination free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The fuel tank may allow filling beyond its capacity. This can cause a possible fuel leak, which can risk fire.

Mazda notified owners of affected vehicles starting in May 2014. You can check with your dealer to see if your vehicle is involved in this program. It is helpful to have your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on hand when you contact them. The Mazda recall number is 7414D.
