Japanese automaker Honda has recalled 14,162 cars in Vietnam manufactured between 2017 and 2019 due to a fuel pump error.

The recall impacts models such as the Honda Jazz, Civic, CR-V, Accord, and City, which feature fuel pump impellers that were improperly molded, leading to a low density.

Over time, the low-density impeller can deform and interfere with the fuel pump body, rendering the fuel pump inoperative, Honda said in a statement.

If the fuel pump module is inoperative, the engine may not start or can stall while driving, increasing the risk of a crash or injury, it said.

Honda has not received any reports of crash or injury related to this issue in Vietnam.

The vehicles were manufactured between September 2017 and January 2019.

Honda said 68 customers who have replaced their fuel pumps in the past should bring their vehicles to a dealer for examination and replacement if necessary. Customers will receive a new fuel pump for free.

Japanese auto brands including Honda, Toyota, Lexus and Mitsubishi have been recalling their vehicles in large number in recent years for using fuel pumps from supplier Denso.
