Honda recalls over 4 Lakh Vehicles due to fuel pump problems
Honda has decided to recall 437,000 cars including the Acura MDX SUVs, Acura TLX sedans with V6 engine and Honda Accords with V6 powertrain. The automaker has addressed that the cars manufactured in the year 2014 to 2018 have been recognized with fuel tank problems.
The problem is big enough to make a car stop while on the road risking the lives of people inside the car and outside too.
Honda, the parent organization for Acura, says they haven’t found any records of an accident or any injuries due to this but are aware that if not worked upon, it can happen.
As indicated by the automaker, the existence of sodium particles in fuels can lead to the lower reach of fuel to the engine further leading to a complete halt of the vehicle. When driven in highly humid temperatures the stream of the gasoline can get reduced which can lower the acceleration and then causing the vehicle to stall.
A speaker from Honda said that this issue was first detected in the areas where the temperature rises higher than normal.
Below are the details of the cars:
- Acura MDX (model year 2016) manufactured from 27 August 2014 to June 2016
- Acura MDX (model year 2017) manufactured from 6 August 2015 to October 2017

You can check whether your car is in the recall list or not over the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website.
You need to take your car to the company/dealers if your car is open for recalls. They will change the fuel-injection engine control unit software or if the problem still persists, they will change the fuel-pump at absolutely no cost for hassle free driving and for a good fuel economy of your car.
