As many as 8,000 Isuzu D-Max units have been recalled due to fuel hose problems


Isuzu must recall the Isuzu D-Max for the Australian market due to a fuel hose problem that could potentially cause the car to catch fire.

Based on the Australian Department of Transport report, there are 8,039 affected vehicles produced between 2021 and 2023.

In this case all D-Max variants produced for Australia between 2021 and 2023 are affected. Meanwhile, throughout last year, the Isuzu D-Max sold 24,336 units in Australia.

The identification numbers for the affected vehicles are MPATFS40JPG005458 and MPATFS40JNT003915.

Launching Autoevolution, Friday (1/12/2023), Isuzu informed the authorities about the fuel hose which could rub against the engine oil level bracket.

A damaged fuel hose can leak diesel onto something hot in the engine compartment, resulting in a fire underneath the engine.

Owners are advised to contact Isuzu Ute Australia Pty Ltd customer relations department for further information.

But more importantly, owners must contact the nearest dealer to schedule an appointment to replace the fuel hose and retaining clip at no cost to the Isuzu D-Max owner.
