Honda recalls more than 52,000 cars in Australia

Honda Australia has recalled more than 52,000 vehicles across its CR-V, HR-V, Civic, Jazz, Odyssey, Accord, City and NSX model lines due to a fuel pump fault.

The recall is the third for this fault both in Australia and overseas, and is a part of the circa-4.5 million cars under recall worldwide for the fuel pump failure.

“Due to an improper manufacturing process, a component within the fuel pump could swell causing the fuel pump to become inoperative,” Honda said in its latest recall notice.

“If the fuel pump stops working, this could stop the engine from starting or stall the engine while driving. This may increase the risk of an accident and may result in serious injury to vehicle occupants and/or other road users.

“The hazard posed to consumers from this safety defect includes the risk of an accident resulting in serious injury or death.”

If your Honda vehicle is affected by the fault, you’ll be contacted by mail to arrange a service at a Honda service centre for repairs.

You can also contact your preferred Honda dealer to book in the repair, which will be completed free of charge – though there may be delays due to parts availability.
