Mazda Australia Pty Ltd — Mazda BT-50 MY2016-2018
What are the defects?
This recall is for two front brake issues:
1. Front brake hose - a front brake hose could rupture if mileage is greater than 45 000 km and the vehicle is used under conditions that require the front suspension to operate through its full range of movement e.g. off-road driving on tracks
2. Front brake caliper - the front brake caliper material may not meet specification, causing the front brake caliper to crack.
If the front brake hose fails or the front brake caliper cracks, the brake system warning lamp of the instrument cluster will illuminate.
What are the hazards?
Failure of the front brake hose or cracking of the front brake caliper could lead to a loss of brake fluid, causing increased brake pedal travel and increased stopping distances. This increases the risk of an accident.
What should consumers do?
Mazda Australia will contact all affected owners as soon as parts become available. Consumers will be advised to present their vehicle to their preferred Mazda Dealer to replace the front brake hoses with modified components and inspect the front brake caliper’s lot numbers. If a caliper is found within the affected lot range, the affected front brake calipers will be replaced. These inspections and replacements will be completed at no charge.
Consumers who require further information should contact Mazda Customer Support on 1800 034 411.
