Faulty fuel pump prompts Honda, Acura to recall 437k cars and crossover SUVs

Honda last week recalled nearly half a million sedans and crossovers SUVs sold under both its mainstream Honda and its upmarket Acura divisions due to a defective fuel pump.

The latest recall, effective Jan. 29 and published by the NHTSA last week, includes the 2015-2019 Acura TLX sedan, 2016-2018 MDX crossover, and 2015-2017 Honda Accord. Each of the vehicles features a specific fuel pump module that could fail and cause reduced performance or even lead to the car stalling out. The recall only applies to the models equipped with the 3.5-liter V-6 engine. In total, the problem spans 437,032 vehicles.
