Potential Number Of Units Affected: 71000


Summary:
Certain reservoir tank caps on the brake master cylinder were produced with a worn out die and lack ventilation holes. As a result, the pressure in the reservoir tank can drop gradually as the brake pad or shoe wears and ambient temperature drops. Also, the pressure could reach a point where the brake caliper and drum cylinder are pulled back by the vacuum in the reservoir tank when the vehicle is parked for a long time. This could lead to reduced brake effectiveness, which could result in a crash.

Remedy:
Dealers will inspect the reservoir cap and replace it, if necessary. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began during April 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.

Dates of Manufacture:
February 1999 - January 2000

Manufacturer Recall Number:
89004
