Honda Recalls 2.6 Million 2017-2020 Honda and Acura Models

by | December 21, 2023

2017 Honda Civic Sedan

American Honda issued a recall Thursday involving more than 2.6 million Acura and Honda automobiles built in the U.S. between 2017 and 2020.

The affected vehicles have fuel pumps with an improperly molded impeller, which moves fuel from the fuel tank into the engine.

The manufacturing defect resulted in low-density impellers, which can deform, interfering with the fuel pump body and rendering the fuel pump inoperative. If this occurs, the engine can stall while driving or may fail to start.

Honda has not received any reports of crash or injury related to this issue.

Compounding the problem is Honda revealed it does not have sufficient quantities of replacement parts for all of the recalled vehicles. It will begin notifying owners in stages in early February 2024. Once it does, dealers will swap out the fuel pump module at no charge.

The recall is the second one by Honda in as many days. On Wednesday, American Honda announced the recall of 106,030 CR-V hybrid crossover utility vehicles built between Aug. 8, 2019 and June 9, 2022.

Those vehicles have a 12-volt battery cable that could overheat or short-circuit in a crash, increasing the risk of a fire and/or injury.

Owners will be contacted by mail by Honda. Authorized Honda dealers will replace the battery cable with an improved part.
