MAZDA ANNOUNCES VOLUNTARY RECALL

 IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Mazda today announced a voluntary recall of 1,118 of its 1990 and 1991 model turbocharged 626 sedans and MX-6 sport coupes sold in California for the inspection and, if necessary, replacement of the exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) valve in the vehicle's emission control system.
 Mazda has found that on certain 1990 and 1991 turbocharged Mazda 626 and MX-6 models manufactured between May 1989 and August 1991 and sold in California, carbon deposits on the EGR valve sensor could result in the improper illumination of the EGR warning light, even though the EGR valve is functioning properly. Vehicle emissions are not affected.
 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 EGR valve. The procedure takes approximately one-half hour and will be performed free of charge.
 Owners will be issued a "Proof of Correction" certificate upon completion of the repair. This certificate should be retained by the customer in the event that the California Department of Motor Vehicles requests proof of correction prior to renewing the registration on the vehicle.
