Mazda recalls yet another vehicle...

FOR the second time in as many days Mazda has issued a recall - this time for the BT-50 ute.

The issue related to an output shaft speed sensor, which could cause an unintended shift into first gear.

It affects vehicles sold between 31 October 31, 2011, and 3 December 3, 2012.

Earlier this week Mazda also recalled certain models of the Mazda2, Mazda3 and Mazda6.

"If the failure occurs while the vehicle is in use, it could cause an abrupt wheel speed reduction. This may cause the rear tyres to slide or lock up until the vehicle speed slows, which could result in a loss of vehicle control," the recall notice said.

Mazda Australia will contact all affected customers by mail. The vehicles will need to be taken back to the dealer for inspection and repair at no charge.

Owners wanting more information can contact Mazda Customer Support on 1800 034 411.
