Fuel Leaks From Fuel Tank

Recall Details

The fuel tank may have insufficient welds, and may leak. Dealers will replace the fuel tank free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

On a limited number of vehicles, the fuel tanks were manufactured with insufficient welds. This could lead to a fuel leak, which is a fire hazard.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Honda or Acura must be performed by a Honda or Acura dealership, respectively. American Honda will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in late July, 2016. If you do receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Honda or Acura dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
