Honda and Acura Recall Vehicles for Fuel Pump Problem

Honda and Acura Recall Vehicles for Fuel Pump Problem

Honda has issued a recall and a stop-sale order on 136,057 Honda and Acura models mostly from the 2018 and 2019 model years to fix a fuel pump that could fail, causing the vehicle to stall. According to a report in Car and Driver, included in this recall are 2018 and 2019 Acura NSX and 2019 RDX, RLX and RLX hybrid, plus 2019 and 2019 Honda Accord, Civic hatchback, Civic Type R, and HR-V, 2019 Fit, and 2019 and 2020 Insight vehicles.

Manufacturing Defects

A recall report issued by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), states that the fuel pumps, manufactured by supplier Denso, were exposed to production solvent drying for long periods of time during manufacturing. This could cause surface cracking and excessive fuel absorption and eventually cause the impeller to become deformed and fail. The fuel pumps on the vehicles produced outside the limited dates are given on the report do not have the issue.

Honda will notify vehicle owners by the end of July. When the recall begins, dealers will replace fuel pumps on the affected vehicles. The automaker has also asked dealers with the fuel pump modules in their inventory to return them. Consumers can check NHTSA’s recall website by entering their vehicle identification number or VIN to see if their vehicle is included in the recall.

If Your Vehicle Has Been Recalled

Vehicle stalling can definitely be a serious problem. If your vehicle suddenly stalls on the freeway, it has the potential to expose you and passengers to significant hazards, including getting hit by other vehicles, which may not be able to slow down or stop in time to avoid a collision with the stalled vehicle. Such stalling can cause serious problems, especially at night when visibility can be limited.

If you or a loved one has been injured as a result of vehicle stalling or other types of auto defects, please contact an experienced auto defect lawyer, who has successfully handled auto product liability cases against large automakers. You may be able to seek compensation for damages including medical expenses, lost income, hospitalization, pain and suffering and emotional distress. If you have lost a loved one due to an auto defect, you may be able to file a wrongful death lawsuit against the automaker as well.
