Last week, Toyota Motor Philippines confirmed that several of its models were included in the recall. More recently on October 23, 2020, Mazda Philippines announces its own recall, covering 1,838 Mazda units made from 2017 to 2019. The recall includes the following Mazda models:

According to Mazda PH, 2020 year models are not affected by the faulty fuel pump. Moreover, the brand has already sent out notifications to the owners of affected vehicles since October 20, 2020, and it includes a schedule for the service appointment.

As we’ve said, the part that caused the recall is a faulty fuel pump. As such, replacing the said part will only take 2.5 hours and is free of charge. It’s also worth mentioning that the replacement parts were already distributed to Mazda dealerships nationwide, ready to be installed on affected cars.

We encourage owners of the listed Mazda models to contact or visit their nearest Mazda Dealerships

Apart from sending out notices, Mazda PH is also encouraging its customers to contact their nearest service dealerships to confirm if their cars are included in the recall.

All you have to do is to provide the car’s Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN) or chassis number indicated on the official receipt/certificate of registration. On top of that, Mazda PH will also be posting a list of VIN included in the recall on its official website.
