Honda told to improve recall practices

TOKYO March 3, 2006; Japan Today reported that Japan's transport ministry on Thursday ordered Honda Motor Co to improve its recall practices, saying it had been slow to publicize faulty fuel pumps in some of its Accord models.

Honda reported to the ministry the same day that it will recall 21,275 of its Accord passenger cars, manufactured between October 2002 and September 2003, because the size of their fuel pumps was larger than they should be. Between May 2003 and January this year, Honda received a total of 77 complaints in connection with the defects, according to the ministry
