Component(s):  ALTERNATOR: LOSS OF POWER
Potential Number of Units Affected: 5,700 

APRIL 2014 -- Mazda North America Operations (Mazda) is recalling certain model year 2014 Mazda3 vehicles manufactured June 12, 2013, through December 18, 2013, and model year 2014-2015 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured May 20, 2013, through December 4, 2013, and both equipped with a 2.5L engine and a regenerative engine braking system. When driving the affected vehicles in heavy rain or in deep puddles, the alternator belt may slip causing the Power Control module (PCM) to incorrectly assume failure of the charging system. Once the PCM assumes that the charging system has failed, the vehicle will stop charging and could result in poor acceleration, loss of steering assist and windshield wiper operation, and a possible engine stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the PCM with updated software, free of charge. The recall is expected to being in late April 2014. Mazda's number for this recall is 7314D.

FEBRUARY 2011 -- Mazda is recalling certain model year 2009-2010 Mazda6 vehicles manufactured from April 8, 2008, through February 8, 2010. A certain type of spider may weave a web in the evaporative canister vent line and this may cause a restriction in the line. If this occurs, the fuel tank pressure may become excessively negative when the emission control system works to purge the vapors from the canister. As the canister is purged repeatedly during normal operation, the stress on the fuel tank may eventually result in a crack, potentially leading to fuel leakage ad an increased risk of fire. Dealers will inspect and clean up the canister vent line, and install a spring to prevent this type of spider from entering the vent line. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before March 25, 2011.   11V-134


NEWS:   Wandering spider leads Mazda to recall 65,000 cars

YAHOO NEWS -- March 3,  2011 –  Mazda has a creepy crawly culprit in its new safety recall — a spider.

After discovering spider webs in the vents, the Japanese automaker is recalling more than 50,000 Mazda6 cars from the 2009-2010 model years in the United States and an additional 15,000 vehicles in Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico.

The company said Thursday a spider could weave a web in a vent connected to the fuel tank system and clog up the tank's ventilation. Pressure on the fuel tank could lead to a crack, causing fuel leakage and the risk of a fire.

Mazda said it was unaware of any fires, injuries or crashes in the vehicles.

Mazda spokesman Jeremy Barnes said dealers had identified 20 cases in which spider webs were found in the vents. The webs were linked to yellow sac spiders, Barnes said, but it was unclear why they were crawling into the Mazda6 rather than other vehicles.

Adding to the mystery, Barnes said the arachnoid attraction to the sporty cars — which the company has marketed with its "zoom-zoom" tagline — had no specific connection to a particular region of North America.

"Perhaps yellow sac spiders like to go zoom-zoom?" Barnes quipped.

The recall involves vehicles with V4 engines built from April 2008 to February 2010.

FEBRUARY 2009 --  Mazda is recalling 29,000 my 2009 Mazda6. The outer door handles may stick which may prevent the door from latching. This situation may allow the door to open while the vehicle is in motion. Driving the vehicle with the door unlatched could lead to an unbelted occupant being ejected and could result in death or injury. Dealers will inspect the door handles and if necessary repair or replace the handles free of charge. The recall began on February 13, 2009. Owners may contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.   09V-043

AUGUST 2008 -- Mazda is recalling 7,200 MY 2007-2008 Mazda6 vehicles with California emission specifications. The metal fuel tanks on the affected vehicles may have had the PVC protective coating on the outside of the fuel tank damaged during the assembly process which may result in reduced corrosion resistance. This could lead to perforation of the fuel tank, causing fuel leakage. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source could result in a fire. Dealers will inspect the bottom surface of the fuel tank for damage to the protective coating and, if necessary, repair the coating or replace the fuel tank. The recall is expected to begin during September 2008.   08V412
