Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—June 18, 2011
Summary: Mazda is recalling certain model year 2008 – 2009 Mazda3 and MazdaSpeed3 vehicles manufactured from January 7, 2008, through November 28, 2008. The ground terminal of the windshield wiper motor may have been inadvertently bent during assembly. If this condition exists then over time the electrical resistance of the motor circuit may increase up to a point that the windshield wipers would potentially increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Dealers will install an additional ground harness on the wiper motor free of charge. The Safety Recall is expected to begin on or before July 15, 2011. Owners may contact Mazda Customer Assistance Center at 800-222-5500.
Notes: Mazda Safety Recall No. 6411F. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.org.
