(CTN News) – Honda Motor’s American division has announced a global recall of approximately 4.5 million vehicles due to the potential risk of fuel pump failure.
This recall affects 2.54 million vehicles in the United States alone, and it follows previous recalls in 2021 and 2020, which involved 628,000 and 136,000 vehicles respectively, all for the same issue.
In addition to the recalls in the United States, Honda has also issued recalls in China and Japan for the same fuel pump problem.
To address this issue, dealers will replace the fuel pump module, as stated in a filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The automaker plans to notify affected owners about the recall in early February.
Although there have been no reports of injuries related to this issue, Honda has received 4,042 warranty claims since 2018.
The recall encompasses various models, including the Accord, Civic, CR-V, HR-V, Insight, Ridgeline, Odyssey, and Passport, as well as several Acura models such as the ILX, MDX, RDX, RLX, TLX, and NSX vehicles.
To address the problem, Honda has developed replacement parts with improved density and expanded clearance.
Honda’s recent recall of 106,030 CR-V hybrid vehicles due to the risk of fire or injury from an overheated battery cable or short circuit is a serious concern.
This announcement emphasizes the importance of promptly addressing safety issues. Honda’s decision to recall a significant number of vehicles demonstrates its commitment to customer well-being.
The potential dangers of fire and injury are severe, with potential property damage and loss of life.
Honda’s declaration takes responsibility for these risks and shows its dedication to maintaining high safety standards. Owners of affected vehicles should contact their local dealership immediately to address the issue and minimize the risk of accidents or injuries.
