The Honda CR-V is a trendy car among drivers, which means many versions of the SUV are on the roads. With a large number of vehicles in production, recalls happen. The CR-V is not the only Honda being recalled for this issue. The full list of affected vehicles is below.
Honda CR-V fuel pump recall
In March 2021, American Honda Motor Co. recalled many vehicles due to the fuel system malfunctioning. Around 628,124 vehicles are potentially affected.
According to Consumer Reports, the cars that Honda included in the recall are 2019-2020 Acura MDX, MDX Sport Hybrid, RDX, TLX, Honda Accord, Civic Hatchback, Insight, 2019 Acura ILX, Honda Accord Hybrid, Civic Coupe, Civic Coupe Si, Civic Sedan, Civic Sedan Si, Civic Type R, Fit, HR-V, Odyssey, Passport, Pilot and Ridgeline, and the 2018-2019 CR-V.
The recall is due to the fuel pump failing, which could cause the engine to stall while the car is in motion. This could potentially cause a crash.
If you think this might impact your car, you can call the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236. In addition to that, you can also check your VIN on the NHTSA website.
Honda will replace the fuel pump assembly free of charge starting on May 18, 2021.
What are some other Honda CR-V recalls?
In 2019, Honda recalled some 2019-2020 CR-V vehicles due to rear subframe bolts coming loose. If this happened while the vehicle was in motion, it could increase the risk of a crash. Honda offered to inspect and replace the bolts free of charge.
In addition to those, there was an issue with the front passenger airbag. If the person sitting in the front seat was unaware of how airbags work, the “Passenger Airbag Off” indicator might have confused some. Honda offered to add a sticker to ease confusion.
A failed weld in the fuel system could increase the risk of a fire. Honda offered to replace the fuel tank, free of charge.
And finally, Honda recalled certain 2019 CR-V SUVs due to a disabled airbag due to damage on the harness. This could cause it to either disable the airbag or cause the airbag to deploy without warning. Honda will fix the airbag cover or harness within the system.
