Inside Trunk Release

Lever (4-door)

*

Inside Trunk Release Lever

Your vehicle is equipped with an inside
trunk release lever that provides a
means of escape for children and
adults in the event they become locked
inside the trunk.

No matter how careful adults might be
with keys and locking their cars,
parents should be aware that children
may be tempted to play around
vehicles and use the trunk as a hiding
place.

Adults are advised to familiarize
themselves with the operation and
location of the inside trunk release
lever so that all children can be told
about it in an appropriate way, keeping
in mind that most vehicles do not have
such levers.

WARNING

Close the trunk lid, be sure the seat
backs are latched and do not allow
children to play inside the vehicle:

Leaving the trunk lid open or leaving
children in the vehicle with the keys is
dangerous. Children could open the
trunk lid and climb inside resulting in
possible injury or death from heat
exposure.

Before Driving

Doors and Locks

3-24

*Some models.

Always keep the car from being a
tempting place to play by latching the
rear seats, doors and the trunk, and
keeping the keys where children can
not play with them:

Leaving children or animals unattended
in a parked vehicle is dangerous.
Babies left sleeping and children who
lock themselves in cars or trunks can
die very quickly from heat prostration.
Do not leave your children or pets
alone in a car at any time. Do not leave
the car, the rear folding seats or the
trunk unlocked.

Opening the Trunk Lid from the

Fuel and Engine Exhaust Precautions

Fuel Requirements

Vehicles with catalytic converters or oxygen sensors must use ONLY UNLEADED
FUEL, which will reduce exhaust emissions and keep spark plug fouling to a
minimum.

To achieve maximum engine performance, use the specified fuel.

Fuel

Octane Rating

*1

 (Anti-knock index)

Regular unleaded fuel

87 [(R+M)/2 method] or above (91 RON or above)

*

1

U.S. federal law requires that octane ratings be posted on gas station pumps.

Fuel with a rating lower than 87 octane (91 RON) will negatively affect the emission
control system performance and could also cause engine knocking and serious
engine damage.

CAUTION

¾

USE ONLY UNLEADED FUEL.
Leaded fuel is harmful to the catalytic converter and oxygen sensors and will lead
to deterioration of the emission control system and or failures.

¾

This vehicle can only use oxygenated fuels containing no more than 10 % ethanol
by volume. Damage to the vehicle may occur when ethanol exceeds this
recommendation, or if the gasoline contains any methanol. Stop using gasohol of
any kind if your vehicle engine is performing poorly.

¾

Never add fuel system additives other than a Mazda genuine product, otherwise
the emission control system could be damaged. Consult an Authorized Mazda
Dealer for details.

Gasoline blended with oxygenates such as alcohol or ether compounds are generally
referred to as oxygenated fuels. The common gasoline blend that can be used with
your vehicle is ethanol blended at no more than 10 %. Gasoline containing alcohol,
such as ethanol or methanol, may be marketed under the name "Gasohol".

Vehicle damage and drivability problems resulting from the use of the following may
not be covered by the warranty.

x

Gasohol containing more than 10 % ethanol.

x

Gasoline or gasohol containing methanol.

x

Leaded fuel or leaded gasohol.

Before Driving

Emission Control System

This vehicle is equipped with an
emission control system (the catalytic
converter is part of this system) that
enables the vehicle to comply with
existing exhaust emissions
requirements.

WARNING

Never park over or near anything
flammable:

Parking over or near anything
flammable, such as dry grass, is
dangerous. Even with the engine
turned off, the exhaust system remains
very hot after normal use and could
ignite anything flammable. A resulting
fire could cause serious injury or death.

CAUTION

Ignoring the following precautions
could cause lead to accumulate on the
catalyst inside the converter or cause
the converter to get very hot. Either
condition will damage the converter
and cause poor performance.

¾

USE ONLY UNLEADED FUEL.

¾

Do not drive your Mazda with any
sign of engine malfunction.

¾

Do not coast with the ignition
switched off.

¾

Do not descend steep grades in gear
with the ignition switched off.

¾

Do not operate the engine at high
idle for more than 2 minutes.

¾

Do not tamper with the emission
control system. All inspections and
adjustments must be made by a
qualified technician.

¾

Do not push-start or pull-start this
vehicle.

NOTE

x

Under U.S. federal law, any
modification to the
original-equipment emission control
system before the first sale and
registration of a vehicle is subject to
penalties. In some states, such
modification made on a used vehicle
is also subject to penalties.

x

While the engine is off, the sound of
a valve opening and closing can be
heard at the rear of the vehicle,
however this does not indicate an
abnormality. The vehicle has a
self-checking device and it operates
while the engine is off.

Engine Exhaust (Carbon
monoxide)

WARNING

Do not drive your vehicle if you smell
exhaust gas inside the vehicle:

Engine exhaust gas is dangerous. This
gas contains carbon monoxide (CO),
which is colorless, odorless, and
poisonous. When inhaled, it can cause
loss of consciousness and death. If you
smell exhaust gas inside the vehicle,

Fuel and Emission

3-27

Do not run the engine when inside an
enclosed area:

Running the engine inside an enclosed
area, such as a garage, is dangerous.
Exhaust gas, which contains poisonous
carbon monoxide, could easily enter
the cabin. Loss of consciousness or
even death could occur.

Open the windows or adjust the
heating or cooling system to draw
fresh air when idling the engine:

Exhaust gas is dangerous. When the
vehicle is stopped with the windows
closed and the engine running for a
long time even in an open area,
exhaust gas, which contains poisonous
carbon monoxide, could enter the
cabin. Loss of consciousness or even
death could occur.

Clear snow from underneath and
around your vehicle, particularly the
tail pipe, before starting the engine:

Running the engine when a vehicle is
stopped in deep snow is dangerous.
The exhaust pipe could be blocked by
the snow, allowing exhaust gas to
enter the cabin. Because exhaust gas
contains poisonous carbon monoxide,
it could cause loss of consciousness or
even death to occupants in the cabin.

Fuel-Filler Lid and Cap

Fuel-Filler Lid and Cap

WARNING

When removing the fuel-filler cap,
loosen the cap slightly and wait for
any hissing to stop, then remove it:

Fuel spray is dangerous. Fuel can burn
skin and eyes and cause illness if
ingested. Fuel spray is released when
there is pressure in the fuel tank and
the fuel-filler cap is removed too
quickly.

Before refueling, stop the engine, and
always keep sparks and flames away
from the filler neck:

Fuel vapor is dangerous. It could be
ignited by sparks or flames causing
serious burns and injuries.
Additionally, use of the incorrect
fuel-filler cap or not using a fuel-filler
cap may result in a fuel leak, which
could result in serious burns or death
in an accident.

Do not continue refueling after the
fuel pump nozzle shuts off
automatically:

Continuing to add fuel after the fuel
pump nozzle has shut off automatically
is dangerous because overfilling the
fuel tank may cause fuel overflow or
leakage. Fuel overflow and leakage
could damage the vehicle and if the
fuel ignites it could cause a fire and
explosion resulting in serious injury or
death.
