Mazda Announces Voluntary Recall

    IRVINE, Calif., April 3 -- Mazda has announced today that it
is voluntarily recalling approximately 1,100 1999-model Miata sports cars for
the inspection and, if necessary, replacement of the fuel injection wiring
harness.
    Mazda has found that on certain 1999 Maws the fuel injection wiring
harness may come into contact with the engine manifold.  This condition could
cause the wiring harness to develop a short circuit, which could potentially
cause the engine to stall.
    Mazda is urging its dealers to inspect the vehicles at the owner homes or
places of business whenever practical and possible.  Authorized Mazda dealers
will handle the inspection and, if necessary, repair of the fuel injection
wiring harness at no cost.  While this inspection should take less than 30
minutes, some owners may have to leave their vehicles at the dealership longer
to accommodate dealer service schedules.
