As usual, Mazda is not aggressive with the reliability of its vehicles. Also, when a possible problem is identified, the manufacturer does not hesitate to replace the entire series of components that may indicate weakness, as is the case with the low-pressure oil pumps of more than 5,000 vehicles circulating in France. The pulse of this pump can, in fact, be damaged and thus disrupt the arrival of fuel in the engine. This poor power supply can prevent startups but can also cause a car to get stuck while driving.
A large part of the variety is involved, for different periods of manufacture. The Mazda 2s that must be returned to the workshop are equipped with 1.5 SkyActiv-G 75 hp, 90 hp and 115 hp, and removed from the line between October 18, 2017 and February 21, 2020. Some CX-3, equipped. 2.0 SkyActiv- G 120 hp, 121 hp and 150 hp are responsible if manufactured between April 23, 2018 and January 26, 2019.
As for the Mazda 6, it is the 2.0 variants of SkyActiv-G 165 hp and 2.5 SkyActiv-G 194 hp, sedan and estate, which left the factory between April 6 and December 5, 2018 which are recalled. Logically, the CX-5, which uses blocks similar to a car, has also been affected, in its production period from April 3 to December 12, 2018.
Even the MX-5 road is affected by this operation. 1.5 SkyActiv-G 131 hp and 132 hp fuel pump, and 2.0 SkyActiv-G 160 hp and 184 hp manufactured between April 5 and October 30, 2018 must also be replaced.
