Japanese automaker Honda has recalled 65,651 vehicles in India, because of a faulty fuel pump. As per the statement put out by HCIL (Honda Cars India Ltd), certain models manufactured in 2018 may have been equipped with ‘defective impellers’, which could effectively lead to the engine stopping or not starting.
The tally of vehicles being recalled include, 32,498 units of the Amaze, 360 units of the Brio, 1,622 units of the BR-V, 16,434 units of the City, 180 CR-Vs, 7,500 units of the Jazz and 7,057 units of the WR-V. The replacement of this defective part will be carried out free of cost from the 20th of this month, at the Honda India dealerships. This process of replacement will take place in a phased manner, and owners of affected vehicles will be contacted individually. If you are a Honda vehicle owner, and would like to check if your vehicle is due to be recalled, you can do so by entering the Vehicle Identification Number / Chassis number on this website.
However, due to the current Coronavirus crisis, the staff present in the dealerships are limited. Furthermore, in order to make sure that social distancing and safety is maintained, the customers of affected vehicles have been asked to visit the dealers after making an appointment.
