Mazda—Mazda2 equipped with automatic transmission—Increased Brake Pedal Effort
What are the defects?
When driving at cruising speeds with the A/C on and subjected to high ambient temperatures, the engine control system may hold the vehicle idle speed at a level higher than required when slowing down. The high idle speed may result in a reduced intake manifold vacuum value being available to provide assistance for the braking system. If the brakes are operated repeatedly when this condition is present, an increased pedal effort will be required to apply the brakes.
