1993-1994 Mazda Navajos Recalled

Washington, DC (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has published the recall of certain 1993-1994 Mazda Navajo automobiles, manufactured between April 1993 - November 1994, because the hydraulic lift cylinder bracket welds could fracture.

With a broken bracket weld, there is a potential for the lift gate bracket to gradually bend inward allowing the lift cylinder ball stud to disengage, and the liftgate to unexpectedly fall from an open position.

Approximately 7,000 vehicles are affected by this recall.  Dealers will install lift gate reinforcement brackets.

Depending upon the condition of the lift gate sheet metal in the area of the bracket, dealers may also install a larger reinforcement.

Owner notification is expected to begin during January 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.
