Mazda Australia has initiated a recall for 8,936 units of the BT-50 utility vehicle, targeting the TF-generation models equipped with the 3.0-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine, produced between 2021 and 2023.

The recall addresses a potential safety issue where the fuel hose may chafe against the engine oil level bracket, leading to damage and possible fuel leakage. The risk associated with this defect is that it could result in a vehicle fire if an external ignition source is present.

To mitigate this risk, Mazda Australia is contacting owners of the affected vehicles to organize an inspection and necessary repairs. The remedy involves replacing the compromised fuel hose, and this service will be provided at no cost to the vehicle owners.

Additionally, Mazda has made its Customer Support line available at 1800 034 411 for owners who might need more information or have concerns regarding this recall.

It is also noted that the Isuzu D-Max, a model sharing some similarities with the BT-50, is subject to a similar recall for the same issue.

Mazda Australia urges owners of the affected BT-50 models to take this recall notice seriously and schedule an appointment with their nearest Mazda dealer as soon as possible. The company assures that the necessary steps are being taken to address this issue promptly.

Owners are encouraged to respond to the recall notice and take the necessary steps to ensure their vehicle's safety. Mazda Australia remains available for any further queries or assistance needed during this process.

Here is the original recall notice.

To check if your BT-50 is effected, here is the list of VINs.
