“2.5 Million Honda Cars at Risk: Recall Now Due to Potential Fuel Pump Issue!
Honda recently announced the recall of more than 2.5 million cars due to an issue with the fuel pump. The vehicles affected are Honda Civic, CR-V, Fit, and Insight vehicles from model years 2016 to 2021. The recall is due to a potential issue with the fuel pump, which may cause sputtering and difficulty starting, among other problems. The issue could be caused by the fuel pump failing to properly maintain pressure in the fuel system, resulting in low fuel pressure when the engine is running. The recall requires Honda dealers to replace the fuel pump with a new one, which should fix the issue. Affected vehicles should begin receiving notifications by mail in the United States and Canada beginning in April 2021. Until then, consumers may check to see if their vehicle is affected by entering the Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) on the Honda website. This is the second time in less than two years that Honda has had to recall vehicles due to a fuel pump issue. Last year, more than 500,000 Honda vehicles were recalled due to a similar issue. Fortunately, the number of recalled vehicles this time around is significantly lower. In addition to the 2.5 million Honda vehicles being recalled, over 300,000 Acura vehicles are being recalled in the U.S., Canada and Mexico due to the same issue. Honda and Acura are taking proactive measures to ensure the safety of their customers by proactively recalling the vehicles before a crash or injury have occurred. Honda urges their customers to take their vehicles to dealers to get the necessary repairs as soon as they can.
