Honda is recalling 2.6 million Honda and Acura vehicles in the U.S. because of a fuel pump defect that could cause the engine to stall while driving. In a statement, the automaker said it hasn’t received any reports of crashes or injuries related to the issue, which is always a good thing.

Honda says that over time, the low-density impeller can deform and interfere with the fuel pump body, breaking the fuel pump. When that happens, the engine may not start or could end up stalling while driving. That could lead to an increased risk of a crash or injury if it’s not taken care of.

Unfortunately, Honda says replacement parts aren’t available in “sufficient quantities” for all 2.6 million recalled vehicles at this point, and it’ll notify vehicle owners in stages. Initial mailed notification for the recall to all owners will happen in early February of 2024, and then subsequent mailings will come as more parts become available. 

According to Automotive News, the recall may end up impacting as many as 4.5 million vehicles globally. Back in November of 2020, Toyota-affiliated parts supplier Denso added over 1.5 million fuel pumps to an earlier recall of about 2 million units because of defects that caused them to stop working. Automakers such as Honda, Ford, Subaru and Mitsubishi purchased those defective parts for their vehicles.

The outlet says that Honda has issued 19 recalls this year in the U.S., impacting over 6.3 million vehicles.

Anyway, here’s the complete list of impacted Honda products from this latest recall:
