2.6 million Honda and Acura vehicles recalled for faulty fuel pumps

Oil may be the lifeblood of an internal combustion engine, but fuel is the food that keeps it running, and for more than 2.5 million Honda and Acuras there’s a chance the fuel supply could run dry.

Of course, this has nothing to do with the world’s oil supplies drying up or the government turning off the oil so you have to drive an EV…for now. No, this is all related to a large batch of faulty Denso fuel pumps that were fitted to numerous Honda models and Acura cars between model years 2017 and 2020.

The problem centers on an improperly shaped fuel pump impeller, the defective shape of which could interfere with the fuel pump housing, which could cause a lack of fuel. And because recall notices have to revel in the absolute worst-case scenario, a bit like an eight-year-old telling you about some horrific accident they saw at school, NHTSA warns that running low on fuel can mean the engine stalls while driving, resulting in fall and/or injury.

    2.6 million Honda and Acura vehicles recalled for faulty fuel pumps

Honda and Acura say there have been no injuries or deaths from the questionable pumps (sorry, eight years old), but Honda has dealt with 4,042 warranty claims. However, that number is less than the 2.6 million vehicles affected by this week’s recall for the same problem. It covers so many cars that it can even make it Autopilot recalling 2 million Teslas appear less scary than they really are.

Here’s a rundown of the Hondas and Acuras that need a new ticker:
