Two car companies, Honda and Acura, have issued two recalls for their cars due to problems with fuel pumps. The cars that have been recalled are the Acura MDX SUV, Acura TLX sedan, Honda Accord sedan, and Honda's Ridgeline pickup trucks. According to Honda, the Ridgeline pickup trucks could be at an increased risk of catching fire, and the MDX, TLX, and Accord have the chance to stall while the car is moving.

Honda has recalled around 106,683 Ridgelines. The exact reason the Ridgelines are being recalled is that the feed port in the fuel pump of the vehicle had the potential of cracking if touched by something basic, like soap. In the event of a crack, fuel could leak out and possibly catch fire. Any Honda Ridgeline that is found to have this issue will be provided with a free-of-charge replacement. If you have an Accord or TLX, then your car is being recalled because there is a defect that can put you at risk of having fuel particles sticking to crucial internal parts of the file pump.
