4.5 Million Honda, Acura Vehicles Recalled Globally for Fuel Pump Issue

Published on December 21, 2023 in Recalls by Guillaume Rivard

Honda will recall an estimated 4.5 million vehicles globally, including some from its luxury brand Acura, due to a potentially faulty fuel pump that may cause the engine to stall while driving.  

This is an expansion of the June 2020 recall that involved the same issue. There are now more than 2.5 million vehicles affected in the U.S. alone. The number in Canada is 297,836 units.

Honda models that are part of the expanded recall include the 2018-2020 Accord, Civic (including the Civic Type R), CR-V (including the 2020 CR-V Hybrid), HR-V, Ridgeline and Odyssey, the 2019-2020 Insight and Passport, the 2018-2019 Fit and Clarity Plug-in Hybrid, as well as the 2017-2020 Accord Hybrid.

On the Acura side, affected models include the 2018-2020 ILX, MDX (including the MDX Sport Hybrid), RDX, RLX and TLX, plus the 2017-2020 NSX.

No crashes or injuries related to defective fuel pumps have been reported so far, the automaker said in a statement, though it has received more than 4,000 warranty claims.

The problem apparently comes from an improperly molded fuel pump impeller that can deform and interfere with the fuel pump body over time. This can cause the engine not to start or to stall while driving. The fuel pump assembly is made by Denso.

Owners will be notified by Honda starting in February and told to bring their vehicle to a dealership to have the fuel pump replaced at no cost.
