Mazda Australia Pty Ltd — Mazda BT-50

Identifying features

VIN (Vehicle identification number)
See attached list

What are the defects?

On the affected vehicles, the end of the return spring for the rear folding seatback latch may break, causing the seat latch mechanism to malfunction.
Under such a condition, an abnormal noise may occur and the rear seatback may not be locked in the upright position and may fall forward and down when braking.
If a child-restraint system is installed on the rear seat facing rearward, the correct clearance between the child-restraint system and the seatback will not be maintained if the rear seatback moves, potentially resulting in the child restraint system not performing as intended.

What are the hazards?

This condition may increase the risk of injury to rear seat occupants in the event of a collision.

What should consumers do?

Mazda Australia will contact all affected customers by mail as soon as parts become available. Customers will be advised to present their vehicle to their preferred Mazda Dealer for the replacement of the rear seat back latch assembly at no charge.
Consumers who require further information should contact Mazda Customer Support on 1800 034 411.
