Honda will replace faulty fuel pumps on some 628,000 vehicles in the United States in a recall due to a defect that could cause the engines in these vehicles to fail and stall.
The vehicles involved are both Honda and Acura models in the 2018 to 2020 model years.
The vehicles included in the Honda fuel pump recall include the CR-V small SUV. This car is one of the auto maker’s top-selling vehicles in the U.S.
Meanwhile, the company believes the fuel pump’s impeller is defective. This is the rotating part inside the fuel pump.
While there are no reports of collisions, Honda is issuing the recall for the fuel pump to ensure public safety.
Owners of the affected vehicles will be notified in late May by Honda. The company will replace fuel pumps, but there is no charge to the owner of the vehicle.
Additionally, the Honda vehicles subject to recall are: 2018 and 2019 CR-V; 2019 and 2020 Accord; 2019 Civic Coupe, Sedan and Type R; 2019 and 2020 Civic Hatchback; 2019 Fit; 2019 HR-V; 2019 and 2020 Insight; and the 2019 Odyssey, Passport, Pilot and Ridgeline.
Also, the Acura models are: 2019 ILX; and 2019 and 2020 MDX, RDX and TLX.
