Hundreds of thousands of cars impacted in Honda Canada recall

Honda Canada has revealed that hundreds of thousands of its vehicles are the subject of a recall.

In total, Honda Canada is going to recall 297,836 Acura and Honda vehicles in Canada due to an issue with their fuel pumps.

Honda has revealed a full list of the vehicles that are being impacted, which are 2017-2020 models.

A statement from Honda Canada says that the fuel pump impeller in all impacted vehicles was “improperly moulded, resulting in low-density impellers.”

The risk to drivers is that over time, those low-density impellers can deform and interfere with the fuel pump body, which would render the fuel pumps inoperative.

In a worst-case scenario, Honda Canada says that this could cause the engine to not start or to cause a vehicle to stall while driving, “increasing the risk of a crash or injury.”

So far, as of the recall issue date, Honda says that it hasn’t received any reports of crashes or injuries related to the issue.

Affected owners will be notified about the recall by mail in February 2024, but owners of the impacted vehicles can also call Acura or Honda at 1-888-946-6329.
