Statement by American Honda Regarding Fuel Pump Recall: 2017-2020 Acura and Honda Models

  • Approximately 2.6 million vehicles are affected in the United States
  • Fuel pumps will be replaced, for free
  • No reported crashes/injuries related to this issue

American Honda will voluntarily recall approximately 2.6 million 2017-2020 Acura and Honda vehicles in the United States to replace their fuel pumps, for free. The fuel pump impeller was improperly molded, resulting in low density impellers. Over time, the low-density impeller can deform and interfere with the fuel pump body, rendering the fuel pump inoperative. If the fuel pump module is inoperative, the engine may not start or can stall while driving, increasing the risk of a crash or injury. Honda has not received any reports of crash or injury related to this issue.

Countermeasure replacement parts are not available in sufficient quantities for all recalled vehicles at the time of this announcement, and American Honda intends to notify vehicle owners in stages. Initial mailed notification of the recall to all owners will occur in early-Feb. 2024 with subsequent mailings to occur as parts become available. Owners of these models can also determine if their specific vehicles will require the recall repair by visiting, or by calling (888) 234-2138.
