Update: Honda Fuel Pump Recall Expands to 4.5M Vehicles Globally

by | December 21, 2023

Japanese automaker Honda’s recall of potentially faulty fuel pumps grows to nearly double. The problem has been ongoing as the company’s issued previous recalls for the same issue in 2020 and 2021.

The 2018-20 Honda Civic Sedan is one of the vehicles that are part of the recall.

The recall revealed earlier today includes 2.54 million vehicles in the U.S. However, the problem has been an ongoing one as Honda has issued two previous recalls for the problem. The first recall came in 2020 for 136,000 vehicles and a second one was issued for 628,000 U.S. vehicles in 2021.

Additionally, Honda issued recalls earlier this month in China and Japan for the same problem.

Honda said it had no reports of injuries, but 4,042 warranty claims related to the issue since 2018, Reuters reported.

What’s Impacted

The recall includes various models build for the 2018-2020 model years. Those vehicles include the Honda Accord, Civic, CR-V, HR-V, Insight, Ridgeline, Odyssey, Passport as well as various Acura models, including the ILX, MDX, RDX, RLX, TLX and NSX vehicles.

The 2018 Acura ILX is being recalled for problems for the fuel pump.

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

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.

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.
