Mazda Australia has recalled 130 examples of the 2020 Mazda BT-50 TF ute (MY20) as the rear seatbelt may have been installed incorrectly.
The recall notice, lodged with the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), says the pretensioner mechanism in the BT-50 could malfunction in the event of an accident, increasing the risk of injury to passengers.
Affected utes were sold between 23 September 2020 and 5 November 2020.
Mazda is getting in touch with owners to organise a free repair.
The company has been contacted and this story will be updated with its response.
A full list of vehicle identification numbers of the 130 utes involved in the recall can be found here.
