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.
Certain Honda vehicles have been recalled due to an alleged defective fuel supply pipe. An incorrect die may have been used by the supplier to design the end form on the fuel feed pipe. The end form is needed in order to secure the connection to the fuel feed hose. A fuel leak may result from the feed hose and the feed pipe disconnecting when the fuel lines become pressurized or even complete detachment 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 in more serious cases, 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.
Approximately 24,127 Honda vehicles in the United States today are affected by the recall. The recall affects the following:
- 2017 CR-V 2WD and AWD
Owners will be notified by Honda 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 25th, 2017. Owners may contact the Honda customer service line at (888) 234-2138 for more details.
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 area of concern from this recall stems from a defect in the battery management system of the vehicle. Water may enter through the gaps of the battery sensor case. If moisture containing conductive substances are within close proximity of the battery sensor, it may potentially cause an electrical shortage or even a fire. Thankfully, there were no reports of injuries or deaths from this automobile defect of all the documents submitted to Honda.
