Mazda BT-50 2010: 4WD icon shows up on the dash
I’ve hard of this before and it usually seems the cause has something to do with the wiring that controls these warning lights. It could either be a bad earth or a broken wire, but in most cases the symptoms are the same; a flashing 4WD indicator light when the vehicle is in two-wheel-drive. I’ve also heard of dud ABS sensors triggering the same, or similar, warning lights on the dashboard.
These vehicles use servos to engage four-wheel-drive (unlike older vehicles which used a manual lever pulled on by the driver) so there’s a level of electronics involved. And that always means potential problems as the cars age, particularly a vehicle that may have seen its share of rough stuff over the years.
The best advice is to have a Mazda specialist interrogate the on-board computer, at which point the car should give up all its dirty little secrets, including why it thinks it’s in four-wheel-drive when it’s not.Show more
Mazda BT-50 2010: How reliable is it?
On average a 2010 model should have done 200-250,000 km, so you are correct in thinking it is high. The BT-50 is generally reliable, but having done almost 400,000 km you have to hope for the best and be prepared for the worst. Having a good service record is a bonus.Show more

Mazda BT-50 2010: Clutch shudder
It is a relatively common complaint with the BT-50 when towing and we get quite a lot of complaints from Navara owners as well. The answer seems to be that the clutches fitted at the factory are marginal for heavy-duty use, and the answer from mechanics we've spoken to is to fit heavy-duty aftermarket clutches.Show more
