Vehicles Affected: Approximately 437,000 model-year 2016-18 Acura MDX SUVs, model-year 2015-19 TLX sedans and model-year 2015-17 Honda Accord sedans, all equipped with 3.5-liter V-6 engines

The Problem: Particulates in fuel may adhere to the internal components of the fuel pump, reducing its performance, which can result in an engine stall, increasing the risk of crash.

Acura manufacturer Honda said it has received no reports of crashes or injuries related to this issue.

The Fix: Dealers will update the fuel-injection engine control unit software and, if necessary, replace the fuel pump, for free.

What Owners Should Do: Honda will begin notifying owners March 25. Owners can call the automaker at 888-234-2138, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
