(WAFB) - Mazda North American Operations is recalling approximately 14,370 model year 2016-2019 Mazda MX-5 Miatas.

Electrical noise in the automatic transmission's range signal may be detected while driving in ā€œDā€ range, causing the vehicle to unexpectedly downshift, resulting in an abrupt deceleration of the drive wheels.

A sudden decrease in the speed of the drive wheels may negatively affect the directional stability of the vehicle, increasing the risk of a loss of vehicle control and potentially resulting in a crash.

There have been no reports of accidents or injuries.

Owners may contact Mazda at (202) 431-6325 or (949) 727-6182.
