2018-2020 Acura and Honda Models Recalled Due to Potential Fuel Pump Failure
The fuel pump will be replaced on hundreds of thousands of cars, minivans, and SUVs

The recalled 2018-2020 cars, minivans, and SUVs may have fuel pumps with defective parts that could prevent an engine from starting or cause the engine to stall while driving, potentially increasing the risk of a crash. A serious problem may cause a warning light to illuminate in the instrument cluster.

Check to see whether your vehicle has an open recall: NHTSA’s website will tell you whether your vehicle has any open recalls that need to be addressed.
If you plug your car’s 17-digit vehicle identification number (VIN) into NHTSA’s website and a recall doesn’t appear, it means your vehicle doesn’t currently have any open recalls. Because automakers issue recalls often, and for many older vehicles, we recommend checking back regularly to see whether your vehicle has had a recall issued.
