The affected vehicles are designated MY2020, and all were sold between May and July of this year.
The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says “a plastic burr may remain after the moulding process of the fuel pump's jet nozzle housing, potentially blocking the nozzle".
“A blocked nozzle can result in insufficient supply of fuel to the engine, [resulting] in the vehicle losing power or stalling."
“This could result in serious injury or death of vehicle occupants and other road users," the notice adds.
