Honda and Acura Announce Recall of 2.6 Million Vehicles

by Pleasant View

Honda Motor’s operations in America have issued a recall of 2.6 million vehicles in the U.S. because of a problem with the fuel pumps that can cause the engine to cut out while the car is being used.

Honda and Acura have issued a recall on certain models of vehicles produced between 2017 and 2020, as reported by a statement from Honda and documents from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Affected models consist of Honda Accords, Civics, CR-Vs and more, along with Acura ILX, MDX, NSX and more.

For these cars, the molding of the fuel pump impeller was done incorrectly and can cause the impellers to be of low density. According to Honda , these can become warped and obstruct the fuel pump body, ultimately leading to the fuel pump ceasing to function.

The report indicate that when the fuel pump module does not function properly, the engine of a car could be affected, potentially leading to the vehicle not starting or stalling while in motion. This could potentially raise the risk of accidents or injuries, though Honda mentioned that there have not been any reports of either caused by this problem.

Beginning in February 2024, Honda will formally contact owners of the 2.6 million vehicles affected in stages to replace their fuel pumps at no cost due to the car owners.

To find out if their car is part of the recall, vehicle owners can visit Honda and Acura’s websites or utilize their respective recall lookup feature, both of which are available online. Honda and Acura’s recall lookup feature can help drivers determine if their model is part of the recall.
