The Problem: The fuel tank in certain Honda Accords
with the Low-Emission Vehicle (LEV) II rating may leak fuel and increase
the risk of a fire. The fuel tank neck may not have been assembled
correctly, causing the fuel pump to not properly seal to the fuel tank.
The Fix: Honda will replace the fuel tank, nut, and
O-ring gasket for free. Notifications will be sent out to affected
owners beginning August 1, and Honda can be reached at 1-310-783-2000.
The recall number is JA9.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 1659 Accords manufactured between January 15, 2013 and April 5, 2013.
