Honda Issues Recall for 24,000 CR-V Vehicles Due to Fuel Leaks

Posted By Regan Zambri Long, PLLC || 15-Aug-2017

Honda has issued a recall for 24,127 2017 CR-V crossover vehicles registered in the U.S. over a defect that may cause fuel leaks. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the fuel supply pipe in these vehicles may have been improperly manufactured. As a result, the feed pipe could disconnect from the feed hose and cause leaks while the vehicle is being driven. Fuel leaks may cause engine stalls that increase the risk of collisions and pose a significant fire risk.

Honda has received 11 reports of leaks that may be connected to this defect. However, the automaker has not received any reports of injuries, accidents or fires. If you are affected by the recall, you should receive a notice in the mail from Honda near the end of August. You can take this notice to your local Honda dealership to receive free repairs.

Is My Vehicle Part of the Honda Recall?

If you do not receive a notice in the mail by September, then you may check the recall status of your vehicle by using www.safercar.gov. However, newer recalls may not always be displayed by the website. You can also call your local dealership and provide your VIN (vehicle identification number) for more information on the recall status of your vehicle.

Honda also recently recalled 1.5 million 2013-2016 Accords due to a defect with the battery sensors that could lead to engine fires. If you or a loved one were harmed by either auto defect, an attorney can help you explore legal options against Honda or other parties.
