An auto manufacturer is issuing a recall for SUVs due to a faulty fuel system.

Mazda Motor Corporation has announced a recall and stop sale order of all model year 2014-2016 CX-5 vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the fuel filler pipe could rupture during a rear-end collision, potentially causing fuel leakage.

Leaking fuel increases the risk of a vehicle fire and injury to passengers.

Mazda is including about 265,000 vehicles in the announcement, but has not received any reports of accidents or injuries related to the recall.

If a customer has concerns about driving his or her vehicle before the repair is available, dealers will offer a free loaner, demo, or rental vehicle.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Tamara Mlynarczyk at (202) 467-5092 or Jeremy Barnes at (949)727-6844.
