Thousands more Mazdas recalled

RACQ has warned Mazda drivers thousands more vehicles had been recalled after due to a malfunction which could lead them to unexpectedly stall.

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) issued the recall for more than 18,000 vehicles affected by faulty software which could see the engine stop.

It followed mass recalls of the 2019 Mazda 3 Hatchback earlier this month, which could cause loss of control of the vehicle and could see wheels fall off.

RACQ’s Lauren Ritchie said affected owners would be contacted directly by manufacturers.

“If you receive a notice, please don’t ignore it. Schedule an appointment at your nearest dealership who will make the necessary repairs at no cost,” Ms Ritchie said.

  • Mazda6 (GL) – Model Years 2018-2019
  • Mazda CX-5 (KF) – Model Years 2018-2019
  • Mazda3 (BP) with 2.5 litre (PY) petrol engine – Model Year 2019.
