Honda Motor Co. is recalling about 8,700 copies of the 2012 Honda Pilot and Acura MDX SUVs to fix a problem in the fuel tank. The flaw is with the vent-shut-float valve case in the fuel-tank assembly. Honda says the part doesn’t meet the proper design specifications, which could result in a fuel leak and possibly a fire.
This recall comes one day after the company launched a recall to fix tailgate strut rods on the Honda Odyssey minivan. Honda will notify dealers and owners of affected vehicles. Dealers will inspect the assembly and replace it if necessary. The recall is expected to begin on March 13. Concerned owners can contact Honda Customer Service at (800) 999-1009. Owners can also go to www.safercar.gov to check out the recall or call the NHTSA vehicle safety hotline at (888) 327-4236.
