There may be inadequate clearance between the engine cover and the cruise control cable, which could allow the throttle to stick in the fully open position when the accelerator pedal is fully or almost-fully depressed. If this occurs, it would be difficult to stop or to decelerate, which could lead to an accident. This risk exists regardless of whether or not the cruise control is used.
The recall affects vehicles with 3.0L engine and cruise control. LHD vehicles: Production date range: 30 May 2000 to 10 December 2004; RHD vehicles: Production date range: 09 February 2001 to 09 January 2004.

What the owner should do?
If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a Mazda dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.
This notification is purely informative for the vehicle type you have selected. As these deficiencies often relate to specific components (engine type, bodywork, equipment), the recall may not apply to all vehicles of this type. First published in the Weekly overview reports of RAPEX notifications.
UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
