Mazda Recall of Certain 2001 – 2002 Mazda Tribute Vehicles

Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—January 28, 2012.

Summary:  Mazda is recalling certain model year 2001-2002 Mazda tribute vehicles manufactured from April 20, 2000, through July 19, 2002.  The brake master cylinder reservoir cap can leak brake fluid.  If brake fluid leaks, it could come in contact with the antilock brake system (ABS) module wiring harness connector.

Consequence:  Corrosion may develop in the electrical connector leading melting, smoking or possible fire.

Remedy:  Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the vehicle’s brake master cylinder reservoir cap and modify the abs electrical system, free of charge.  Until the repair has been performed, vehicle owners should park their vehicles outside.  The Safety Recall is expected to begin on or about January 30, 2012.  Owners may contact Mazda at 248-393-5990.

Notes:  Mazda’s Safety Recall Campaign Number is 6712A.  Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY: 800-424-9153); or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
