What’s the problem?
These affected fuel pumps are the same as those from the prior recall that were manufactured by Denso, a parts supplier. In the factory, they were exposed to a drying solvent that, when left too long, could dry out the pump too much. This could cause cracks that allow excess fuel in and force the engine to either not start or stall while on the road, increasing the risk of a crash.
Honda hasn’t reported any specific incidents or injuries related to the defect in these models.
What’s the fix?
Dealers will inspect and replace the fuel pump with one that has been redesigned to address the issue. The repair will be done free of charge.
What do you do?
Honda will begin notifying affected owners starting in mid-May by mail with instructions on next steps.
