Mazda is recalling certain model-year 2018 Mazda3, Mazda6, 2019 CX-3, 2018-2019 MX-5, CX-5, CX-9, and 2019-2020 Mazda2 vehicles due to a fuel pump issue. An improperly manufactured fuel pump could develop cracks and fail, which may prevent the vehicle’s engine from starting or cause it to stall while it’s running, increasing the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on January 11, 2022. Owners may contact Mazda customer service at 800-222-5500 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will inspect and replace the fuel pump, as necessary.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
