WASHINGTON — Mazda North American Operations is recalling approximately 264,463 2014-'16 Mazda CX-5 SUVs in the U.S. because the fuel filler pipe could rupture during a rear collision, potentially causing fuel leakage, the automaker said on Monday.
A stop-sale order on the affected CX-5s went into effect immediately at Mazda dealerships.
There are no reports of accidents or injuries linked to the recall, Mazda said in a statement.
There are no reports of fires, Mazda spokeswoman Tamara Mlynarczyk wrote in response to an e-mailed query from Edmunds.
A repair for the CX-5s is still in the works and a date has not been set for the recall.
"If a customer has concerns about driving their vehicle before the repair is available, dealers will offer a free loaner, demo or rental vehicle," the company said.
Owners can contact Mazda customer service at 1-800-222-5500.
No information about the recall has been posted on the website of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle safety in the U.S.
Edmunds says: Mazda dealers can help owners with any immediate concerns now. Others should wait for their official recall notice and then schedule a service appointment.
