Fuel Pump Recall coming to some newer models

:
2017 Mazda CX-5 GT, 2016 Mazda6 iGT, 2014 Mazda3 sGT hatchback
Mazda has issued fuel pump recall (weak blade) in several countries.
Not sure if US will be next, but it is very likely.
(same issue with Toyota and Honda not long ago)

Model: Date produced (check the label at the base of your B-pillar or wait for the letter)
Mazda2: 10/17 - 8/19
Mazda3: 8/18 - 2/19
Mazda6 (gas): 8/18 - 9/18
CX3 (gas): 9/18 - 10/18
CX5 (gas): 8/18 - 9/18
CX9: 8/18 - 9/18
(note: not every vehicle produced within the time frame will be recalled.)

Disappointing, but at least it looks like only 2 months of production were affected. Where did you see the date ranges?

Official announcement from Mazda Taiwan.
I double checked the dates carefully, unless the news has wrong production dates.
The announcement in US will likely come out soon.

First mention I've seen of a fuel pump issue with our newer vehicles. Didn't see any indication in the information posted of which fuel pump it is. I'm familiar with other makes having fairly early failures with the high pressure pump, so I'll place my bet on that pump for this Mazda recall as well.

It is the low pressure fuel pump inside the fuel tank, not the high pressure fuel injectors.
Toyota just had a massive recall on a similar issue (likely the same supplier of fuel pump).
Reason for this failure is weak blades inside the pump. The blade could snap off, causing pump to lose the pressure and lead to vehicle stalling while in motion ... hence, a safety recall.

Link to the Toyota one.

Thanks for the info, and it looks like I lose my bet, but not the first or last time of that happening. Good to have this heads-up, in order to be watching for further developments with our vehicles. I wonder if this fuel pump might have been the automaker's first attempt at Cylinder Deactivation.

Anyone know if this recall will apply to Mexico plant production also (Mazda3) or only production from plants in Japan? Maybe a different fuel pump supplier for the Mexico plant. IDK just asking.

VQ35DE, not sure yet.
It depends on whether Mexican plant uses the same fuel pump.
Let us wait and see.

A quick search on google will find recall news from China, Malaysia and Taiwan.
It might take some time for other parts of the world.
After all, Mazda might need to prepare enough parts for the recall.

yrwei52,
Mazda Taiwan has notified all dealers in Taiwan.
So based on the recall notice from Mazda Taiwan, the blades of the fuel pump are weak which can be deformed over time and stuck, hence the pump failure. The affected models are all gasoline engines on Mazda2 (manufactured 2017/10 ~ 2019/8)、Mazda3 (2018/8 ~ 2019/2)、Mazda6 (2018/8 ~ 2018/9)、Mazda CX-3 (2018/9 ~ 2018/10)、Mazda CX-5 (2018/8 ~ 2018/9)、Mazda CX-9 (2018/8 ~ 2018/9).

Looks like my 2018 Toyota Yaris iA, a Mazda2 in disguise, is affected. But the difference is those Mazda’s in Taiwan were all assembled in Japan, but my Yaris was assembled in Mexico.
