Honda Cars India have issued a precautionary recall for nearly 78,000 units in India to change a faulty fuel pump. The Japanese automaker has launched a service campaign to replace fuel pumps in 77,954 Honda vehicles, spanning across several models, that were manufactured between January 2019 and September 2020 in India. As per the manufacturer, the fuel pumps installed in these vehicles may contain defective impellers, which can lead to the engine stopping or not starting at all.

The recall will be carried out in a phased manner, with the first phase starting a couple of days back from April 17, 2021. Honda has released a detailed list of all the models that have been affected by the issue, including their production periods and the number of units of each model that have been fitted with the defective fuel pump. The recall has affected every Honda model in India, except for the fifth-generation City. The recall has most affected the Honda Amaze, with as many as 36,086 units having been fitted with the faulty fuel pump.

Model Production Year No of Units affected
Amaze Jan - Aug 2019 36,086
Last-Gen City Jan - Sept 2019 20,248
WR-V Jan - Aug 2019 7,871
Jazz Jan - Aug 2019 6,235
Civic Jan - Sept 2019 5,170
BR-V Jan - Oct 2019 1,737
CRV Jan 2019 - Sept 2020 607
  Total 77,954

This recall also affects 20,248 units of the fourth-generation Honda City, 7,871 units of the WR-V, 6,235 units of the Jazz, 5,170 units of the Civic, and 1,737 units of the BR-V. All these vehicles were produced within the period of January and October 2019. Furthermore, 607 units of the CR-V has also been recalled that were produced between January 2019 and September 2020. It has to be noted that the Honda Civic, CR-V and BR-V have been discontinued in India.

Vehicles manufactured before or after the mentioned time period do not have the suspected defective fuel pumps. This recall could also be a part of a global recall that Honda had initiated in March 2021. The automaker had stated earlier last month that they will recall about 761,000 vehicles worldwide to replace fuel pumps that could fail and lead to engine problems. Given the current situation with the Covid-19 pandemic in India, Honda dealers are currently operating with limited staff. Customers have been advised to visit dealerships with prior appointment to adhere to strict pandemic protocols.

Honda’s authorized dealer partners will be contacting the owners of the affected vehicles in an individual manner. The replacement of the part will be carried out free of charge to the customer. Owners can also check if their vehicles are covered under this campaign by entering the 17-digit VIN on the special microsite that has been created on the manufacturer’s official website.
