Honda and Acura recall nearly every model for a faulty fuel pump
Honda and its luxury brand Acura are recalling nearly every 2019 model and many 2020 models to replace a faulty fuel pump, the automakers announced this week.
A defective impeller in the fuel pump could cause the affected vehicles to lose power or stall, thereby increasing the risk of a crash. Honda reported no known crashes or injuries to the NHTSA.
The recall encompasses 628,124 vehicles across the 2018-2020 model year lineup in both the Acura and Honda brands. The only vehicles of those model years not affected were the low volume Acura NSX supercar and the limited-release Honda Clarity fuel-cell and plug-in hybrid vehicles.
Owners can expect notification as early as late May, and dealers will replace the fuel pump free of charge. To check the status of your car, visit Acura's recall site or Honda's recall site or by calling 888-234-2138 during business hours.
