“The move is designed to prevent instances where the engines die abruptly or fail to start at all because of defective fuel pumps. The service to replace the [fuel pump] will also be done free of charge at Honda's official workshops.”
Denny added that customer participation in the product recall is vital, as it is for their safety.
"We have notified the owners of the vehicles with the defective fuel pump,” he said. “We urge them to bring their car to an official Honda garage for a check and get the part replaced.”
Denny added that Honda also provides free pickup service for the car to the nearest official dealer. Customers can contact the nearest official Honda garage or book an appointment through the Honda e-Care application on Apple App Store or Google Play Store, he said.
