Mazda Recalls 2001-2002 Miatas for Emissions Fix

Mazda Motor Corporation is voluntarily recalling its 2001 and 2002 Miata models to lower vehicle emission levels. Many of these cars could exceed federal emission standards because of inadequate emission control when the vehicle is started cold. EPA discovered the potential emission compliance problem in the 2001 and 2002 models after testing at its National Vehicle and Fuel Emissions Laboratory in Ann Arbor, Mich. Mazda will replace the vehicle's central processing unit with one that has different engine calibrations to reduce emissions that come from cold starts. The calibrations will not have an effect on vehicle performance or fuel economy. The repairs will be made at no cost to vehicle owners.

Mazda will phase in the recall by region to assure availability of the replacement part. Owners with questions about this recall can contact Mazda Customer Service at 800-222-5500, or e-mail customerassistance@mazdausa.com [ mailto:customerassistance@mazdausa.com ] For additional information, visit EPA's Web site at:http://www.epa.gov/otaq/recall.htm
