Earlier, Honda announced the recall of more than 106,000 2020-2022 CR-V hybrid vehicles.

The Canadian Press< p class="StyledBodyHtmlParagraph-sc-48221190-4 hnvfyV">Honda's North American arm is recalling more than 2.5 million vehicles in the United States and approximately 300,000 vehicles in Canada due to a fault in the fuel pump which can increase the risk of engine failure or stalling while driving.

According to documents released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the fuel pump impeller used in 2017 to 2020 Acura and Honda vehicles has been poorly molded. This causes the impellers to warp and interfere with the fuel pump over time, rendering the fuel pump inoperable, regulators said.

Honda said 297,837 Canadian vehicles are affected by this recall, but no crashes or injuries related to this issue have been reported.

If the fuel pump module is not working, the car's engine may not start or stall while driving, NHTSA said, increasing the risk of crashes and injuries. Honda says it has not received any reports of accidents or injuries related to this recall to date.

The automaker announced Thursday that it will replace the fuel pumps of all vehicles affected by the recall free of charge, in separate phases. The first batch of landlord notification letters will be sent to Canada and the United States in February.

Earlier this week, NHTSA and Honda also announced the recall of more than 106,000 2020-2022 CR-V hybrid vehicles due to a missing fuse on the 12-volt battery exterior cable power circuit. This can cause the battery cable to short circuit or overheat in a crash, regulators said.
