Recalls for 2019 Acura

2019 ACURA ILX
NHTSA Campaign ID:FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE:STORAGE:TANK ASSEMBLY
Manufacturer:Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)
Manufacture Dates:08/20/2018 - 11/02/2018
Potential Units Affected:4455

Defect Description:

Acura (American Honda Motor Co.) is recalling certain 2014-2019 Acura ILX vehicles. The vehicles may have a deformed fuel tank, raising the height of the fuel pump and allowing the fuel level float to stick, possibly causing the fuel gauge to display an inaccurate fuel level.

Consequence:

If the fuel gauge displays that the vehicle has more gas than it actually does, the vehicle may run out of gas and stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

Action:

Acura will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, as necessary, replace the fuel tank, free of charge. The recall began March 14, 2019. Owners may contact Acura customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Acura's number for this recall is H3U, Z3T.
2019 ACURA MDX
NHTSA Campaign ID:SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:FOUNDATION COMPONENTS:DISC:CALIPER
Manufacturer:Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)
Manufacture Dates:06/27/2018 - 09/04/2018

The rear brake caliper pistons may have an insufficient coating, causing gas pockets to form, reducing brake performance. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 135, "Light Vehicle Brake Systems."

Consequence:

A reduction of braking performance increases the risk of a crash.

Action:

Owners will be notified, and Honda or Acura dealers will bleed the brakes, free of charge. The recall began December 11, 2018. Owners may contact Honda customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Honda's numbers for this recall are C31 and L30.

Consequence:

Reduced fuel pump performance can result in an engine stall, increasing the risk of crash.

Action:

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will update the fuel injection engine control unit (FI-ECU) software and, if necessary, replace the fuel pump, free of charge. The recall began March 25, 2019. Owners may contact customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Acura's recall number for this recall is P3W. Honda's recall number for this recall is N3X.
