Mazda Announces Fuel Pump Recall On Malaysian Models

The models affected include the Mazda2, Mazda3, Mazda6, CX-3, CX-5 and CX-9 that are made between 2017 and 2019. 

Mazda has recently announced a product recall regarding the replacement of its fuel delivery module, also known as the fuel pump. 

A total of 19,685 Malaysian Mazda vehicles are affected by this recall, with the models affected including the Mazda2, Mazda3, Mazda6, CX-3, CX-5 and CX-9 that are made between 2017 and 2019. 2020 model year Mazda vehicles are also not affected by this recall.

Owners of vehicles affected by the recall will be informed by Mazda via ‘notification letters and mobile SMS, which will include further details on the product recall’. Bermaz Motor, the sole distributor of Mazda vehicles in Malaysia, urge all customers affected by the recall to make an appointment with any authorised Mazda service centre upon receiving the notification. 

The recall of the fuel pump is performed as a preventative precaution ‘to address the possibility of loss of engine power or vehicle stalling’ due to the lack of fuel delivery as caused by the potentially defective fuel pump module. Moreover, this product recall is also being carried out on other Mazda vehicles in affected countries, not just Malaysia. 

Bermaz assures its customers that the fuel pump replacement will be performed free of charge, with all costs related to the recall procedure to be borne by Bermaz Motor. The replacement of the fuel pump is stated to take roughly 1.5 hours, depending on model and service centre availability. Fuel pump replacements are also coming in stages, so customers are urged to make an appointment to ensure parts and service availability.
