Recall information provided by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

Component not known


00V210002
On certain sport utility vehicles equipped with speed control, the speed control cable may be defective and malfunction or allow water into the cable, eventually causing corrosion that could interfere with the function of the speed control. If either of these conditions occurs and the speed control is used, the speed control could prevent the throttle from returning to idle, resulting in a stuck throttle. A stuck throttle could result in a crash.
Dealers will inspect the speed control cables for the defective cables and replace those found. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Aug. 21, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.

This condition could cause loss of control of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

14V282000
Mazda North American Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2008-2011 Tribute vehicles manufactured October 5, 2006, through September 11, 2010. The affected vehicles have a steering torque sensor that may not be able to properly detect driver steering input. As a result, the system could remove the Electric Power Steering (EPS) assist.
If power steering assist is lost, greater driver effort would be required to steer the vehicle at low speeds, increasing the risk of a crash.
Mazda will notify owners and dealers will update the software for the power steering control module (PSCM) and the instrument cluster module, free of charge. If a vehicle shows a history of a loss of the torque sensor signal or fault codes relating to the PSCM when the vehicle is brought in for the recall remedy, the affected components will be replaced, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in July 2014. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 1-248-295-7859. Mazda's number for this recall is 7614E

Owners may contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500. Mazda's number for this recall is 7514D.
