Mazda launches service activity to tackle steering fault

Mazda UK is asking owners of some Mazda3 and Mazda5 cars from October onwards to visit their local dealer for a free precautionary technical check of the power steering system.

This is part of a Special Service Programme to check for possible residual particles in the power steering pipes which could cause the hydraulic power assistance system and its electric pump to overheat and shutdown.

If the vehicle suffers a problem with the power assistance for the steering a malfunction warning lamp will be illuminated, alerting the driver. 

In the UK, Mazda is contacting the owners of 10,268 vehicles who may be affected.

Only a few specific models, manufactured between April 2007 and November 2008, could be affected. These models are Mazda3 (1.6 diesel and 2.0 petrol) and Mazda5 (1.8 and 2.0 petrol).
