Mazda Has Recalled the 2002-2003 Mazda MPV

(SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released the following information.

Models: Mazda MPV Years: 2002-2003

Number Potentially Involved: 5,400

Dates of Manufacture: November 2001 – January 2003

Defect: On certain minivans equipped with front fog lights, the fog light bulb socket may have been installed improperly. The bulb socket and the wiring harness may separate from the fog light housing and drop inside the bumper. Should this occur, the heat from the fog light may cause a fire.

Remedy: Dealers will inspect the installation condition of the fog light bulb assembly and repair it when necessary. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during March 2003. Owners may contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.

affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA 
If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
