Recall Details

A fuel leak may develop in the engine compartment from a fuel hose that connects to the underbody fuel line, and / or at the fuel pump. Dealers will replace the affected hose and clamp free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

A fuel hose in the engine compartment may leak fuel. A fuel leak around hot engine components or other ignition source creates a fire hazard.
