Hi
Anyone have information on recent reported fuel pump problem requiring recall?
My CRV 2019 1.5 t model appears not to be on the Vin list of affected models. (Australian model built in Thailand)
Happy Honda motoring !

Not heard of this?

Do you have a link/news source perhaps?

FYI, I have mentioned this before.....Does NOT seem to apply to CR-Vs. This is apparently a USA recall at this time.

Vehicles Recalled

Acura

• 2018-2019 NSX
• 2019 RDX
• 2019 RLX, 2019 RLX Sport Hybrid

Honda
• 2018-2019 Accord
• 2018-2019 Civic Hatchback
• 2018-2019 Civic Type R
• 2019 Fit
• 2018-2019 HR-V
• 2019-2020 Insight

The problem: Fuel pump components in the tank could crack due to exposure to solvents during the manufacturing process. This could lead to a fuel pump failure.

The fix: Acura and Honda dealerships will replace the fuel pumps on affected models free of charge.

Amazing you cant be bothered to provide a simple link. :rolleyes:

But let me save you the trouble. The affected CR-V's you refer to but couldnt be arsed to link to are in Australia. Not the UK or USA. As for the rest of the world, I'm not concerned.

Informative.

However, the OP made it out as if all CR-V's are affected....they aren't.

Don’t you find that with a lot of “problem” topic posts here?
Indeed.

A frustrated owner often feels better if they can convince themselves it is not simply a limited production run with defective parts (which is one of the prime drivers of actual recalls and TSBs for new vehicles). They somehow feel better knowing the misery is spread around to others.

This is a common human behavior actually... and not just with motor vehicles.

Yep.

Honda's recall notice in the Philippines clearly says "select units of"... and goes on to list 8 models of Hondas.

Honda's recall notice in Australia lists the specific vehicle years, models, and actual count of possible defective units in the field by model. So this is clearly some batches of defective fuel pumps (bad impellers) that may be in the field.

Normally, once Honda isolates a part defect, they then recall a range of VINs that were supplied with that particular lot of parts and purge them all from vehicles in the field.

well I thought I was being helpful
I know one UK member with a hybrid has had a recall letter
This may well be the first.

I know a couple of folks with the Hybrid who had them literally as they were available - no issues or any sort of recall letter.

Could this be a mistake? Quite possible. Honda UK has form for it. I recall them sending me a recall letter for my 2011 Accord re ABS sensors needing to be replaced. Took the car in, logged in by the techs and examined - all was fine. It was a mistake from Honda UK - the recall notice was for Accords in Japan but had somehow made it to the UK hence letters issued here too. 🤦‍♂️
