What’s the problem? 

The affected fuel pumps were manufactured by Denso, a parts supplier. During the manufacturing process, they were exposed to a drying solvent that may have been left for too long, which could lead to cracking and other structural issues. It can also lead them to absorb fuel at a rate that’s higher than normal. If all this were to happen, the engine could sound rough triggering the Check Engine light or actually stall.

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 late July by mail with instructions on your next steps.
