What is the Latest Honda Recall?
We expect the items we purchase to be safe for our use and consumption. Unfortunately, that is not always the case. Sometimes the products we buy pose potential risks to our health and/or safety. When a potential hazard or issue with a product becomes known, it is common for the company that produces the item to issue a recall for the item. The purpose of the recall is to help inform consumers of the potential issue associated with the item. One product that is often the subject of recalls is automobiles. Recently, the automaker, Honda, issued a recall for some of its vehicles.
The recall comes after the discovery of a problem with the fuel pump. It is possible for the fuel pumps in the recalled vehicles to fail. If the fuel pump fails, it can cause the engine of the vehicle to stall or lose power. If this were to happen, it could contribute to accidents. Thus far, the company has not received any reports of crashes or injuries related to the fuel pumps. The recall includes 1.4 million vehicles worldwide, with 136,000 vehicles in the United States. The vehicles impacted by the recall include:
- 2018 and 2019 Honda Accord
- 2018 and 2019 Civic Hatchback
- 2018 and 2019 Civic Type R and HR-V
- 2019 Fit
- 2019 and 2020 Insight
- 2019 Acura RDX, RLX, and RLX Sport Hybrid
- 2019 NSX
The company plans to notify owners of the vehicles impacted by the recall in late July. Owners of the recalled vehicles will be able to take their vehicle to a Honda dealership. At the dealership, the fuel pumps will be replaced at no cost to the owner of the vehicle.
