Honda is recalling more than 708,000 Honda and Acura vehicles with defective Denso fuel pumps that cause stalling and non-starting.

Honda issued a global recall of roughly 1.4 million vehicles with Denso fuel pumps in June 2020. This recall came after Denso recalled more than 2 million pumps in vehicles from several automakers. Honda received 583 warranty claims and 166 field reports pertaining to the Denso fuel pumps as of March 19, 2021. The recall itself affects 628,124 vehicles in the United States and more than 80,000 vehicles in Canada.
Honda will notify affected Honda and Acura owners at the end of May 2021. Owners may be eligible for reimbursements for money spent on fuel pump repairs.
