US:Fires prompt Mazda5 production halt, recall

Fires prompt Mazda5 production halt, recall

By Mark Rechtin
Automotive News

LOS ANGELES -- Mazda Motor Corp. has stopped production globally of the 2006 Mazda5 minivan and has recalled 2,700 units in North America for exhaust system-related fires.

Mazda's North American auto dealers have been ordered to stop selling the minivan until the cause of the fires has been found and a solution is in place.

Three fires due to heat buildup in the system have been reported. The six-seater went on sale in June in the United States.

Customers were told to return their vehicles immediately. They will be given replacement transportation at no cost. Mazda has told customers they will be without their Mazda5s for at least 30 days.

A Mazda spokesman said the production halt affects all Mazda5 vehicles globally. But Japan and Europe have not issued recalls or stop-sale orders, as those countries' versions have different engine specifications and engine management control units. The spokesman said that the cause of the fires has not been determined.
