The ACCC recall notice advises that the fuel suction plate located within the fuel tank may develop a crack which could expand over time.
In this condition, fuel may eventually leak when the vehicle has a full tank of fuel.
Fuel or fuel vapour in the presence of an ignition source could increase the risk of a vehicle fire.
