Mazda3 & Mazda5 to Be Recalled

August 18, 2010

WASHINGTON - Mazda Motor Corp. is recalling MY 2007-2009 Mazda3 and Mazda5 vehicles because of reports of sudden failure of the power steering assist, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

Some drivers have reported that they've suddenly lost power steering assist while driving, making steering the vehicle more difficult. This poses a safety risk. 

Because of a short supply of parts, the first phase of recall notification will begin around Sept. 15. The second phase is expected to begin in September as well but may extend into February 2011. 

Owners can reach Mazda at (800) 222-5500.
