If your the orginal owner then the recall should cover you. Im not a lawyer but i was involved with a class action suite with ford some years ago. That by the way madza disigned for ford and i was the thrid owener of the vehicle. The problem had to do with the electronic ignition modelue when it got hot it would fail i had replaced two or three of them at about 140 dollars a peiceTo make a long story short i didn't have to do anything they sent me a letter i sent them recipts for parts and they sent me a check for 450 dollars that covered labor that i did in 10 minutes each time.And i olny had two of the recipts. But the vehicle was an 85 ranger and this came in 98 or 99. Things don't get recalled if there not a safty issue so if someone has demed that your saftey is in question over something that some company has disigned it should still be covered. You may need to do some investigating and mabey contact your state dep of com protuction but if its a saftey issue i don't see how you can be at fault or loose

Mazda 626 overheating fixable

Any engine issue is fixable, it comes down to how much you intend to spend based on the year and condition of the car. Until the cause of the overheating is know (at least $100 for diagnosis) the cost to repair can be from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars.

Mazda Protege - 1998 DX 1.5 automatic I got a check engine light ON with P1195 code. What do I need to fix this?

P1195 = EGR (exhaust gas recirculation valve) Boost Sensor Circuit Check the sensor and the wiring/connections to it.

Mazda's also had issues with the vacuum lines to the EGR valve and the ports in the throttle body plugging up! I think some models even had a recall so it may be worth checking with your local Mazda dealer or have your father or you check online for Tech service bulletins and recalls for Mazda!

Power steering goes out randomly

you are 100% right. I have a 2004 avalanche that they want to charge me $250 to replace the intermiediate shaft when they recalled up to 2003 avalanches for this. I was told they thought they had it fixedin 04 but didint, no recall will be issued because it is not a safety issue.

I bought a 2000 Ford and a 1998 Lincoln several years ago, No more GM for me if thats the best they can do. It sure is nice to only have to go to the shop for oil changes.
