RepairPal Expert Overview
Our Quick Take:
A fuel leak may develop form the area of the fuel tank were the fuel pump cover is located.
What Should You Do?
Honda will notify owners of affected vehicles beginning in April, 2014. If you don't receive notification you feel you should have, please contact your dealer for further instruction. They may ask for your vehicle identification number (VIN), so please have it handy when you call. The Honda recall number are JD9 for inspection and preliminary part replacement and JE0 for final part replacement.
The affected vehicles are being recalled because a fuel leak can develop from the area of the fuel pump strainer cover. Parts to permanently repair this concern are not yet available. Honda will first send owners an interim letter, followed by a second letter when the remedy parts become available. Parts are expected to be available beginning in the summer of 2014. Vehicles currently leaking fuel from the pump cover will get a replacement using the part currently available. All recalled vehicles will receive a revised cover once the part becomes available.
