The American division of Honda Motor is issuing a recall for 2.54 million cars in the US due to concerns about fuel pump failure.
In a report filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Honda said that the issue is the fuel pump, mainly with the impeller. If it were to bend and obstruct the fuel pump body, the pump would no longer function.
If the fuel pump component isn’t working, the engine cannot start or stall while driving, leading to an increased risk of accidents and injuries.
In February, Honda will start sending out notices to car owners.
For the same problem, Honda recalled 136,000 cars in 2020 and 628,000 in 2021. According to a document filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Honda dealers will be responsible for replacing the fuel pump module.
Although no injuries were reported, 4,042 warranty claims have been linked to the problem since 2018, according to Honda.
The Acura NSX, ILX, MDX, RDX, RLX, and TLX, as well as the Honda Accord, Insight, Civic, CR-V, HR-V, Odyssey, Ridgeline, and Passport from 2018 to 2020 are all part of the recall.
According to Honda’s announcement, the company recalled the affected vehicles in China and Japan on December 1st. The new parts, The new pieces are more robust and have more space between them.
Reports show this announcement follows another large recall involving almost 1 million cars from Toyota and Lexus, this time involving the passenger-side airbags.
Problems have been identified with the sensors in these cars’ front passenger seat systems. Toyota said there may have been instances when the sensors were built incorrectly, leading to short circuits. This raises the possibility that the airbag won’t deploy in a collision because the occupant identification system misjudged the passenger’s weight.
