MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Honda is recalling nearly 900-thousand Odyssey minivans due to a fuel pump cover which could cause a leak.
According to documents posted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the cover on the fuel pump strainer can wear down from exposure to high temperatures and acidic chemicals, like those found in fertilizers. Fuel leaks can cause a vehicle fire.
The Odyssey models 2005 through 2010 are impacted by the recall. The recalled minivans were made between June 23, 2004, and September 4, 2010.
Honda says no fires or injuries have been reported.
Honda dealers will repair the vehicles for free, but the company says replacement parts may not be available until this summer. It will notify owners of the recall next month.
