    Mazda/MazdaSpeed3 2007

    MANUFACTURER: Mazda Motor Corp.

    NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID NUMBER: 07V052000 MFG'S REPORT DATE: February 14, 2007

    COMPONENT: Equipment

    POTENTIAL NUMBER OF UNITS AFFECTED: 1700

    SUMMARY:
    On certain passenger vehicles equipped with optional accessory all weather floor mats, there is insufficient clearance between the floor mat and accelerator pedal.

    CONSEQUENCE:
    In this situation it is possible that the accelerator pedal might get stuck behind the floor mat, which may prevent the vehicle from properly decelerating when the accelerator is released increasing the risk of a crash.

    REMEDY:
    Owners will be instructed to return the floor mats to dealers and will be shipped a new floor mat free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on or about March 7, 2007. Owners may contact Mazda at 1-800-222-5500.

    NOTES:
    Mazda recall No. 4407B. Customers may also contact The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
