Recall of more than 18,000 popular Aussie vehicles

THREE Mazda models less than a year old have been recalled.

More than 18,000 Mazdas have engine faults which could cause the vehicle to lose power and stall.

The recall affects the 2018-2019 Mazda6 (GL), the 2018-2019 Mazda CX-5 (KF), and the 2019 model year Mazda3 (BP) with the 2.5-litre petrol engine.

According to the recall notice, the engine's powertrain control module (PCM) software which controls the cylinder deactivation function may not operate correctly, and may cause an intake valve rocker arm to move out of position and make contact with other internal engine parts.

"The malfunction indicator light may illuminate, the engine may lose power and may stall without the ability to restart, increasing the risk of an accident and injury to vehicle occupants and other road users," the recall notice said.

Mazda Australia will contact all affected owners.

Fixes will be made for free at the owner's preferred Mazda dealership..
