Placing hands or fingers around a liftgate is
dangerous because the liftgate closes
automatically from the near-shut position,
which could cause hands and fingers to be
pinched and injured.
NOTE
If the electric liftgate opener is pressed

If the liftgate is opened/closed

Before Driving
Fuel and Emission
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.
Gasohol containing more than 10 % ethanol.
Gasoline or gasohol containing methanol.
Leaded fuel or leaded gasohol.
3-26
Before Driving
Fuel and Emission
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 tow-start this vehicle.
NOTE
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.
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.
3-27
Before Driving
Fuel and Emission
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, keep all windows fully open and contact an Authorized
Mazda Dealer immediately.
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.

Windows
Power Windows
The windows can be opened/closed by operating the power window switches.
WARNING
Make sure the opening is clear before closing a window:
Closing a power window is dangerous. A person's hands, head, or even neck could be caught
by the window and result in serious injury or even death. This warning applies especially to
children.
Never allow children to play with power window switches:
Power window switches that are not locked with the power window lock switch would allow
children to operate power windows unintentionally, which could result in serious injury if a
child's hands, head or neck becomes caught by the window.
Make sure nothing blocks the window just before it reaches the fully closed position or while
fully holding up the power window switch:
Blocking the power window just before it reaches the fully closed position or while fully
holding up the power window switch is dangerous.
In this case, the jam-safe function cannot prevent the window from closing all the way. If
fingers are caught, serious injuries could occur.
NOTE
When driving with only 1 of the rear windows open, your ears might experience a
resonating sound. However, this does not indicate a problem. The sound can be reduced by
slightly opening a front window or by changing the size of the rear window opening.
Opening/Closing Windows
The window opens while the switch is pressed and it closes while the switch is pulled up
with the ignition switched ON. Do not open or close 3 or more windows at the same time.

The passenger windows may be opened or closed using the master control switches on the

The power window can be operated for about 40 seconds after the ignition is switched
from ON to ACC or off with all doors closed. If any door is opened, the power window
will stop operating.
For engine-off operation of the power window, the switch must be held up firmly
throughout window closure because the auto-closing function will be inoperable.
