WASHINGTON, DC (June 7, 2017) – Mazda North America Operations announced today that it is recalling certain model year 2004-2008 RX-8 vehicles.

Heat from the engine and the exhaust may cause the main fuel pump pipe to crack. If the fuel pump pipe cracks, fuel may leak, increasing the risk of a fire.

There have been no reports of accidents or injuries.

Approximately 69,447 vehicles are affected.
