Check if you’re affected

To find out if your vehicle is affected, you can search your car’s Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) on the Product Recall page. If you don’t have the VIN or chassis number, you can find the 17-digit code in your JPJ registration card or service booklet. Alternatively, you can find it on the passenger’s side centre pillar or in the engine bay firewall.

If your vehicle is listed, you may contact any Honda authorised dealer to make an appointment when you receive a notification to replace the fuel pump subject to parts availability. It is reported that stocks for the fuel pump replacement will come in stages and the cost for the replacement is completely free of charge for affected customers.

Honda Malaysia assures that all of its 2020 production models are not affected by this recall and apologises for the inconvenience caused to affected customers. At the moment, there have been no incidences of crashes or injuries caused by this issue in Malaysia.
