Honda Australia has recalled 22,366 examples of the Jazz, City, Civic, Accord, HR-V, CR-V and NSX over an issue with their fuel pumps.
Specifically, the recall involves 2790 MY19 Jazz light hatches, 390 MY19 City light sedans, 5320 MY18 Civic small cars, 66 MY18 Accord mid-size sedans, 6438 MY18 HR-V small SUVs, 7361 MY18-MY19 CR-V mid-size SUVs and one MY19 NSX sports car sold between July 26, 2018, and May 12, 2020.
A component in the fuel pump used by these models could swell due to an improper manufacturing process.
If this were to occur, the fuel pump may become inoperative, which could prevent the engine from starting or cause it to stall while driving. Either way, the risk of an accident and therefore serious injury to vehicle occupants and/or other road users is increased.
Affected owners are being asked by Honda Australia to book their vehicle in at a preferred service centre for a free-of-charge inspection and repair.
Those looking for further information can call Honda Australia on 1800 804 954 during business hours. Alternatively, they can reach out to their preferred dealership.
