Honda recalls more than 2.5 million U.S. vehicles over defective fuel pumps

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) said that Honda Motor’s American division is recalling around 2.5 million cars due to a potential fuel pump failure that could result in an engine stall while driving and extend the risk of an accident.

The NHTSA stated on December 21 that dealers would replace the fuel pump module at no additional charge to resolve the problem.

The most popular models from the Japanese carmaker, including the 2018–2020 Honda Accord, Civic, CR–V, HR–V, Ridgeline, Odyssey, and the 2018-2020 ILX, MDX, MDX Sport Hybrid, RDX, and TLX Acura models, are included in the recall.

The NHTSA reports that the fuel pump inside the fuel tank may malfunction. Owner notification letters are planned to be mailed by February 2024.

The notification was made the day after the regulator recalled roughly 106,030 CR-V hybrid cars because of a potential fire hazard or harm from a short circuit or overheated battery cable in the event of a collision.

As of December 12, the automaker has not been notified of crash-related injuries involving the affected vehicles.
