Mazda to recall nearly 150,000 cars in Europe over a faulty fuel pump

Mazda is planning to recall several model lines due to fuel pump problems.

The recall affects 529,964 vehicles worldwide, 148,651 of which are registered in Europe. The model series affected are the Mazda2 (DJ/DL), Mazda3 (BM/BN), Mazda6 (GJ/GL), Mazda CX-3 (DK), Mazda CX-5 (KF), Mazda CX-8 (KG), Mazda CX-9 (TC) and Mazda MX-5 (ND), from the production period October 2017 to May 2020.

Micro-cracks can cause fuel to enter the fuel pump impeller and cause it to swell and deform. The deformed impeller could subsequently come into contact with surrounding parts and become blocked. This would lead to engine shutdown due to interruption of fuel supply.

This problem has already occurred with other Japanese manufacturers. More or less extensive recalls in various markets have already been announced by Honda, Subaru, Suzuki, and Toyota.

The fuel pump of the affected cars will be replaced. According to Mazda’s German headquarters, owners have not yet been informed. Neither the duration of the repair nor the recall code is known yet. In the U.S., letters will be mailed to owners in early 2022.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
