Honda is recalling 628,124 vehicles in the United States over fears a faulty fuel pump could cause an engine to stall, increasing the risk of crashes.
This week, Honda Motor Co announced that the recall would include some of its most popular vehicles from 2018-2020 model years, including the CR-V small SUV and various Acura and Honda vehicles. The worldwide recall reportedly covers some 700,000 or more vehicles.
Honda said affected vehicles may be equipped with a fuel pump module manufactured with low density impellers – the rotating part of the pump – which are at high risk of deformation and malfunction.
“Fuel pump inoperability could prevent an engine from starting or stall an engine while driving, increasing the risk of a crash,” the recall notice says.
Honda says it has received no reports of injuries or crashes related to this issue, but has had 583 warranty claims and 166 field reports.
