Mazda MPV Recalled

• Mazda (North America), Inc.

• Models: Mazda MPV Years: 2000-2001

• Number Involved: 19,000

• Dates of Manufacture: April 1999 - November 2001

• Noncompliance: Certain minivans without anti-lock braking systems (ABS) fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 135, "Passenger Car Brake Systems." Due to inappropriate brake pipe layout, these vehicles do not meet the partial failure brake stopping distance requirements of the standard. If partial failure occurred in the braking system, the stopping distance of the vehicle could increase, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy: Dealers will modify the brake system. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin during January 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500, Option #4

(NHTSA Recall No. 01V382/Mazda Recall No. 0502A)
