    Mazda/MazdaSPEED3 2007

    MANUFACTURER: Mazda Motor Corp.

    NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID NUMBER: 07V295000 MFR'S REPORT DATE: July 02, 2007

    COMPONENT: Engine and Engine Cooling

    POTENTIAL NUMBER OF UNITS AFFECTED: 5700

    SUMMARY:
    On certain passenger vehicles, the No. 4 left side engine mount bolt may loosen if a sudden rapid acceleration is repeatedly performed.

    CONSEQUENCE:
    If the vehicle is continuously driven under such condition, the No. 4 engine mount bolt may loosen and pull out or break, allowing the transmission to be out of position. In extreme cases, the drive shaft may become detached. If this occurs the vehicle will lose power and will come to a stop, increasing the risk of a crash.

    REMEDY:
    Dealers will inspect and replace the No. 4 engine mount bolt with a modified one, and, if necessary, replace the No. 4 engine mount rubber and bracket with new ones free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on or about July 13, 2007. Owners may contact Mazda at 800-222-5500 .

    NOTES:
    Mazda recall No. 4607F. 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.
