Safety Ratings

Safety Ratings data is not currently available for the 1999 Mazda MX-5 Miata 2dr Conv 10th Anniversary Edition.


Potential Number Of Units Affected: 22,000

On certain passenger cars, the non-return valve installed at the lower end of the fuel filler pipe can stick due to insufficient clearance between the valve case and the valve shutter combined with the material properties of the fuel hose between the filler pipe and the fuel tank. This can cause a "hard to refuel" condition, and in some instances, a "fuel spit back" during refueling.

Dealers will replace the non-return valve with a modified valve. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification will begin during April 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.
