Mazda BT-50: Driveshaft issues

Asked by Darren Stendt

I have a Mazda BT-50 and, from the time it was new in 2012, I have broken four driveshafts. On the fourth occurrence, Mazda refused to cover it under warranty, claiming the break was caused by "regular use in harsh environments". The vehicle has been off-road - it is a 4WD after all - but no more than twice a year and over very short distances. In fact, for the last 100,000km the vehicle was used on highways by my wife as I spent that time deployed overseas with the ADF.

Mazda spokeswoman Karla Leach has good news: "After reviewing the customer's case, we have refunded the cost of the driveshaft."
