Statement by Honda Canada Regarding Fuel Tank Recall: 2012 Honda Pilot and Acura MDX

MARKHAM, ON, Feb. 23, 2012 /CNW/ - Honda Canada will voluntarily recall 385 model-year 2012 Acura MDX and 186 model-year 2012 Honda Pilot vehicles to inspect and, if necessary, replace the fuel tank.

The vent shut float (VSF) valve case, a component of the emissions-related on-board fuel vapor recovery system mounted inside the fuel tank, could detach from its mounting inside of the tank due to an incorrect VSF case material. A detached VSF case may result in fuel overflowing from the fuel tank or possibly a fuel leak, which could increase the risk of fire.

No leaks, fires nor injuries have been reported related to this issue, which was identified during internal production testing by the part supplier.

Honda Canada is announcing this recall to encourage owners of all affected vehicles to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification of this recall from Honda. Mailed notification to customers will begin next month.  In the interim, owners can determine if their vehicles will require repair by going on-line to or by calling 1-888-946-6329.
