Over 2,900 Mazda BT-50 recalled

Vehicles sold between July 2015 and February 2016 could have a potential gearshift cable issue


A recall has been issued for 2,904 Mazda BT-50 vehicles sold between July 14, 2015 and February 2, 2016.

A notice on the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) website states that the "gearshift cable retaining clip may not be fully engaged, which could lead to the gearshift cables moving out of position and contacting the propeller shaft".

"Continued contact between the gearshift cables and the propeller shaft could cause damage to both, which may result in difficulty changing gears or loss of drive.

"This may pose an accident risk to the vehicle occupants and other road users."

Mazda Australia will contact all affected owners by mail.

Owners will be advised to contact their local authorised dealer to arrange for an inspection and repair of the vehicle.

The full list of affected vehicles can be found here.
