Mazda Australia has recalled 90,363 cars across seven model lines, citing a potential fault with fuel pump.

The recall notice, lodged with the Department of Infrastructure, says: “The low pressure fuel pump impeller may become deformed and cause the fuel pump to stop working. This can result in the vehicle stalling.
