Honda Recall: 2.6M vehicles in US to swap out fuel pumps of Honda and Acura models produced between 2017 and 2020 to rectify flaw.
Honda is recalling approximately 2.6 million vehicles in the United States to swap out fuel pumps and rectify a flaw that heightens the risk of accidents, as reported by the Japanese automaker. This Honda recall encompasses a wide range of Honda and Acura models produced between 2017 and 2020, including popular ones like the Honda Accord, Honda Civic, and Acura TLX.
A press release from Honda on Thursday elucidates an issue with the fuel pump impeller, capable of rendering the fuel pump non-functional. The release warns, “If the fuel pump module is inoperative, the engine may not start or can stall while driving, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.”
Importantly, the company asserts that it has not received any reports of crashes or injuries associated with fuel pump impeller issues. Honda’s U.S. subsidiary plans to inform vehicle owners in a phased manner as replacement parts become available, spanning from December 2023 to February 2024, as outlined in a federal recall report.
