Honda recalls 2.5 million vehicles


Honda recalls 2.5 million vehicles over fuel pump issue

00:21

Honda is recalling more than 2.5 million cars in the U.S. because the fuel pump inside the fuel tank may fail, causing the vehicles to stall while driving and increasing the risk of a crash, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Another roughly 2 million Honda vehicles were recalled internationally for the same issue, bringing the total recall to 4.5 million cars, according to Reuters.

The fuel pump module in the recalled vehicles will be replaced by dealers at no charge, NHTSA said on Wednesday. Owners can also contact Honda customer service at (888) 234-2138. The automaker will start notifying owners of the recall by mail on February 5, the government agency said. 

The recall comes only one day after Honda recalled about 106,000 CR-V hybrid sport utility vehicles because of a battery cable problem that can raise the risk of a fire during an accident. In the latest recall, some CR-V hybrids are also affected by the fuel pump issue.
