Nearly 4800 examples of Isuzu's ute have been forced back to the dealership, over concerns about the leaf springs.

Isuzu Ute Australia has recalled the 2018 4x2 and 4x4 D-Max Crew Cab, over concerns about the car's rear leaf springs.

According to the company, the rear leaf spring could fracture because the front eye has a too-small diameter.

If the leaf spring fractures, there's a risk of the parking brake being applied because the rear axle is unsupported on the damaged side, putting owners and other road users at risk.

A total of 4717 units are included in the campaign – a VIN list is attached here.

Isuzu will contact owners of the affected vehicles and advise them to organise a free fix.
