2019 Honda CR-V: Recall Alert

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 134 model-year 2019 Honda CR-V compact SUVs

The Problem: The joint weld between the fuel tank and the vapor return line may not be sufficiently welded, which could cause the weld to fail, allowing fuel to leak and increasing the risk of a fire in the presence of an ignition source

The Fix: Dealers will replace the fuel tank for free

What Owners Should Do: Honda will begin notifying owners Sep. 16. Owners can call the automaker at 888-234-2138, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
