The recall will include 886,815 Honda Odyssey minivans in the United States, from the 2005-2010 models years. Honda said in a statement that it plans to replace the fuel strainer free of charge.
The vehicles’ fuel strainers may be in danger of deteriorating prematurely with exposure to high temperatures and acidic chemicals, Honda said, resulting in cracks in the material. Those cracks could lead in rare cases to leaking fuel, increasing fire risks. Honda said it was unaware of any or injuries related to the issue.
Because the cars being recalled are no longer in production, replacement parts will not be available until the summer.
The recalls come as General Motors is embroiled in controversy over a recall of 1.6 million cars related to ignition issues. More than 10 deaths have been linked to the design flaw.
