Honda Recall: Replacement of Fuel Tanks

The recall affects certain 2015-2016 Acura MDX, 2015-2016 Honda Odyssey and 2016 Honda Pilot vehicles, requiring free repairs as a result of this action. Manufacturing errors during the welding process used to manufacture the fuel tanks may have resulted in insufficient welds on the fuel tank components. Over time, the insufficient welds may separate and allow for fuel leakage. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source may increase the risk of a fire. American Honda has received no reports of fires or injuries related to this condition.
