Mazda recalls cars for exhaust emission problem

Car makers Mazda has begun recalling about 6,000 cars in the US that may exceed the US Clean Air Act carbon monoxide (CO) emission standard.

The affected models are the 1995 Mazda 626 and MX-6 with 2.5-liter engines with manual transmissions. Cars built to California standards are not included in the recall. The recall follows the US EPA’s discovery of levels of carbon monoxide above US Federal limits during routine emissions testing.

The company will increase the air into the intake manifold which will reduce the carbon monoxide emissions. Mazda will notify owners by letter. The cars will be repaired free of charge. See related story )
