Recall Notice

LemonFree has found some important recall information regarding 2002 Mazda Tribute vehicles

2002 Mazda Tribute (7/27/2012)  

Campaign Number: 12V357000

Component Name: ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING

Manufacturer: MAZDA MOTOR CORP

Description: Mazda is recalling certain model year 2001 through 2006, and 2008, Tribute vehicles equipped with 3.0L V6 engines and speed control. Inadequate clearance between the engine cover and the speed control cable connector could result in a stuck throttle when the accelerator pedal is fully or almost-fully depressed. This risk exists regardless of whether or not speed control (cruise control) is used.

Defect: A stuck throttle may result in very high vehicle speeds and make it difficult to stop or slow the vehicle, which could cause a crash, serious injury or death.

Corrective Action: Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will repair the vehicles by increasing the engine cover clearance, free of charge. Remedy parts are now available. The safety recall began on September 13, 2012. Owners may contact Mazda Customer Assistance Center at 1-800-222-5500, option #6.
