Approximately 12,100 model-year 2020 Mazda CX-30 SUVs equipped with all-wheel drive are being recalled because the evaporative vent hose for the fuel tank may be disconnected, possibly allowing fuel to leak from the charcoal canister vent, which in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire. Also, the engine may stall while driving, increasing the risk of a crash.
Mazda will begin notifying owners on Aug. 11. Owners can call the automaker at 800-222-5500 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will inspect the evaporative vent hose in the fuel tank. If the hose is disconnected, it will be reconnected and the charcoal canister will be replaced.
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.
