Honda recalls Civic, CR-V, Insight and Legend

May 30, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The reason is a defective fuel pump, which can fail at any time during operation. The review covers models assembled in Japan and the UK.

Honda Motor has announced a relatively small recall in Japan regarding the CR-V, Insight and Legend models produced between June 4, 2018 and June 28, 2019. in the amount of 12,427 units, as well as Civic, issued from August 21, 2018 to September 13, 2019. There are 7,572 such cars in Japan.

It is established that in the production of these cars low-quality fuel pumps were used. This applies to models released both in Japan and in the UK. The rubber gasket of the fuel pump is made of rubber having insufficient gas resistance. As a result, during operation, it can deform and collapse prematurely. As a result, the impeller will come into contact with the pump casing, and it will cease to function. The engine will stop and cannot be started without replacing the pump.

21 cases of pump failure were recorded in relation to Japanese-made cars and 64 cases regarding cars assembled in England. The automaker cites separate statistics, because formally it relates to cars manufactured by different companies (Honda Motor Co., Ltd. and Honda of the UK Manufacturing, Ltd.) and applies to locally produced and imported cars.

During the service campaign, the pump will be replaced as an assembly. All work will be free for car owners.

It is very likely that similar reviews will be conducted by the automaker and outside of Japan in relation to models, since all of them, with the exception of Legend, are present in markets.
