  1. 2002 Mazda MPV VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL:CABLES NHTSA Campaign #04V234000

    • Date Announced: MAY 19, 2004
    • Vehicles Affected: 10,200

    Summary: On certain minivans equipped with cruise control, the cruise control actuator cable may be broken due to insufficient strength (group 1). Also included are certain 2000-2001 minivans equipped with cruise control built between March 31, 1999 and March 31, 2001, that have had the cruise control repaired and possibly had a defective cable installed during that repair (group 2).

    Consequence: It is possible that the broken actuator cable may be out of position and could interfere with the operation of the accelerator cable, preventing a decrease in engine speed while driving, increasing the risk of a crash.

    Actions: Dealers will replace the actuator cable. Owner notification for vehicles involved in group 1 began on July 7, 2004. Owner notification for vehicles involved in group 2 began on September 10, 2004. Owners should contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.

  2. 2002 Mazda MPV EXTERIOR LIGHTING:FOG LIGHTS NHTSA Campaign #03V206000

    • Date Announced: JUNE 05, 2003
    • Vehicles Affected: 64,000

    Summary: On certain mini vans and passenger vehicles, the socket holder in the fog lights is installed in the lamp casing using pressure. During operation of the fog light, the heat from the bulb can expand the socket holder. The expansion can force the socket holder rearward. After repeatedly being subject to this expansion, if the fog light is also subjected to vibration during vehicle operation, the socket holder with the bulb holder and the wiring harness may separate from the fog light casing.

    Consequence: Should this occur, the bulb socket and the harness can drop inside the bumper and possibly but rarely, the heat generated by the bulb can cause the bumper to burn.

    Actions: Dealers will install a spring to prevent the socket holder from separating from the lamp case. Owner notification began on July 14, 2003. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.

    Summary: On certain mini vans equipped with front fog lights, the fog light bulb socket may have been installed improperly.

    Consequence: If the vehicle continues to be used with this condition, the bulb socket and the wiring harness may separate from the fog light housing if exposed to shock and/or vibration and drop inside the bumper. Should this occur, the operation of the fog light may then cause the bumper to burn.

    Actions: Dealers will inspect the installation condition of the fog light bulb assembly, and repair it when necessary. Owner notification began March 31, 2003. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.
