Mazda Announces MPV Minivan Recall
    IRVINE, Calif., July 6 -- Mazda North American Operations
(MNAO) today announced it is voluntarily recalling its 2000-model-year MPV
minivan for replacement of the vehicle's lower intake manifold assembly.  Due
to the limited number of customer vehicles involved, Mazda has already
contacted owners by telephone.
    "We addressed this problem very quickly and only 87 of the affected
vehicles reached consumers and we've contacted all of them by phone," said
Duke Hale, vice president of customer service and parts operations for MNAO.
"The balance are in dealer, port or distribution inventories and are already
receiving the necessary modifications."
    Mazda has found that certain 2000-model MPV minivans were assembled with
the wrong combination of lower intake manifold, fuel injector and fuel rail
assembly, which may cause a rough idle or fuel leak.  Mazda is not aware of
any fuel leaks arising from this condition, and has been unable to cause leaks
during testing.
    Mazda is asking owners of the affected vehicles to bring them to an
authorized Mazda dealer for the inspection and, if necessary, replacement of
the lower intake manifold assembly.  The repairs should take less than two
hours.
    Mazda North American Operations is responsible for the sales and
marketing, customer parts and service support of Mazda vehicles in the United
States.  Headquartered in Irvine, Calif., MNAO has over 750 dealerships
nationwide and is owned by Mazda Motor Corporation, Hiroshima, Japan.
