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.
