MAZDA ANNOUNCES VOLUNTARY RECALL

 MAZDA ANNOUNCES VOLUNTARY RECALL
 IRVINE, Calif., June 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Mazda today announced a


voluntary recall of all 1990 and 1991 model Mazda MPV multi-purpose vehicles sold in the United States for the inspection and, if necessary, replacement of the rear brake shoes. A total of 95,074 vehicles are affected.
 Mazda has found that on certain 1990 and 1991 Mazda MPV models, manufactured between July 1989 and June 1991, the characteristics of the rear brake linings can change over time. As the brakes wear, the coefficient of friction of the rear brake linings can increase, possibly causing inconsistent brake response which may result in the rear-wheel ABS system activating prematurely.
 Owners of the affected vehicles are being asked by mail to bring their vehicles to an authorized Mazda dealer for the inspection and, if necessary, replacement of the rear brake shoes. There will be no charge to the consumer for either the inspection or replacement of the brake shoes. The procedure should take approximately two and one-half hours.
