2001 Honda Civic Recalled

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting certain 2001 Honda Civic sedans manufactured between August 2000 - February 2001.

On certain sedans, a small amount of water may have been left in the fuel pump electrical connector after testing. This residual water could cause the fuel pump to fail due to corrosion. If the pump stops working, the engine will stall without warning, increasing the risk of a crash..

56,269 sedans are affected by this recall.

Dealers will inspect the fuel pump. If corrosion is found, the fuel pump will be replaced.

The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began June 29, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.
