Mazda Australia has recalled the 2005-2012 RX-8 and 6 MPS to fix a problem with the fuel pump retaining rings.
“Due to improper installation of the fuel pump retaining rings they may crack and result in a fuel leak. There is an additional risk of damage due to heat exposure from the engine and exhaust pipe with the RX-8 model,” Mazda says in its recall notice.
“A fuel leak at the fuel tank may result in an underbody fire. A vehicle fire could increase the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users or bystanders.”
