Due to an improper manufacturing process, a component within the fuel pump could swell causing the fuel pump to become inoperative.

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.

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by mail and advised to take their vehicle to a Honda Service Centre for repair. Consumers can also contact the service department of their preferred Honda Service Centre to make a booking to have the repair conducted free of charge, subject to parts availability.
