Isuzu D-Max ute recalled over fire risk

Isuzu has issued an urgent recall for its popular D-Max dual-cab ute after a fire risk was detected.

The Federal government Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts issued a recall for the utes on Wednesday.

More than 8,000 vehicles built between 2021 and 2023 suffered a manufacturing issue that causes the fuel hose to rub against the engine oil level bracket.

If the hose is damaged, it could cause a fuel leak and dangerous fire.

‘A vehicle fire could increase the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users or bystanders and/or damage to property,’ the recall states. 

Isuzu urged affected owners to contact their closest Isuzu dealership to have the fuel hose and retaining clips replaced, free of charge.

Owners who want to know more can contact Isuzu on 1300 147 898 or at info@iua.net.au.
