Recall Alert: Honda CR-V Recall

American Honda Motor Company (Honda) has issued a recall of their new SUV vehicles. The reason for the recall originates from a fire hazard risk due to an improperly manufactured fuel supply pipe, which may disconnect and even cause a leak while driving.

Recall Details

Certain Honda vehicles have been recalled due to an alleged defective fuel supply pipe. The supplier may have used an incorrect die to design the end form on the fuel feed pipe. The end form is needed to secure the connection to the fuel feed hose. A fuel leak may result from disconnecting the feed hose and the feed pipe when the fuel lines become pressurized or completely detached from the vehicle. The engine may stall if the pipe disconnects, resulting in an increased risk of an automobile accident. The disconnected pipe can cause a fuel leak and, more seriously, cause a fire in the presence of an ignition source. Unfortunately, both scenarios may increase the risk of injury to vehicle occupants.

Honda has received four field reports and seven warranty claims as of July 11, 2017. For this reason, the company was prompted to conduct a safety recall. There were no reports of crashes, fires, or injuries relating to this issue.

Which Vehicles?

The recall affects approximately 24,127 Honda vehicles in the United States today. The recall affects the following:

  • 2017 CR-V 2WD and AWD

Recall Remedy

Honda will notify owners if their vehicle is included in the recall. Owners can take their cars to their local dealers to have the fuel supply pipe replaced free of charge. The recall is expected to initiate on August 25, 2017. For more details, owners may contact the Honda customer service line at (888) 234-2138.

Recent Honda Battery Sensor Recall

Although the recall from above only affects less than 25,000 vehicles on the road today, a separate recall by Honda affects over 1.1 million of their 2013 to 2016 Accord sedans. The main concern from this recall stems from a defect in the vehicle’s battery management system. Water may enter through the gaps in the battery sensor case. If moisture-containing conductive substances are close to the battery sensor, it may cause an electrical shortage or even a fire. Thankfully, there were no reports of injuries or deaths from this automobile defect in all the documents submitted to Honda.
