Honda to Recall Over 5 Million Vehicles Worldwide

Honda is recalling nearly 5 million cars worldwide that are at risk of fuel pump failure — with more than half of those in the United States. About 2.6 million vehicles in the USA are being recalled to replace fuel pumps and address a defect that increases crash risk, according to the Japanese automaker.

The U.S. recall affects a broad slate of Honda and Acura models made between 2017 and 2020 including the Honda Accord, Honda Civic, and Acura TLX. A Honda press release described a problem with the fuel pump impeller, which can cause the fuel pump to become inoperative. It reads:

“If the fuel pump module is inoperative, the engine may not start or can stall while driving, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.”

The company added that it had not received any crash or injury reports related to fuel pump impeller issues, but 4,042 warranty claims related to the issue since 2018. Honda’s US subsidiary plans to notify vehicle owners in stages as replacement parts become available, the automaker said. Dealers will be notified between December 2023 and February 2024, the company said in a federal recall report.

Honda has also issued recalls over the same issue in China and Japan. It covers various models including the 2018-2020 model year Honda Accord, Civic, CR-V, HR-V, Insight, Ridgeline, Odyssey, Passport, and various Acura models, including the ILX, MDX, RDX, RLX, TLX, and NSX vehicles.
