Nasty business, these vehicle recalls, so let’s get right to it. Honda Malaysia is asking 53,354 owners to get the fuel pump fixed at the nearest authorised service centre. It’s a precautionary measure, for sure, because prevention is better than cure. Although in this case, you may not want the cure.
It’s not just Hondas in Malaysia that are affected but the world over. A faulty fuel pump could mean that you’ll experience a loss of engine power or your vehicle stalling. To date, there are no reports of car accidents or injuries related to the issue.
Ignoring the issue may bring you short term bliss. For long term happiness, do get in touch with your Honda authorised service centre as soon as you get the notification from Honda Malaysia. You only need to pay with time to get the fuel pump replaced, Honda Malaysia will foot the bill, so you can still have money for Plash Speed 5.
If you, or anyone you know, have recently bought a pre-owned Honda that falls in the table below, should also take note of this. The best thing to do here is to check with your nearest authorised Honda service centre.
