Denso Fuel Pump Failure
The impellers inside of Denso branded fuel pumps may have been excessively exposed to a drying agent during manufacturing. This leads to them cracking, absorbing fuel, and deforming so badly that they stop sending fuel to the engine. Honda …Continue reading article "Denso Fuel Pump Failure"

Rodents Chew Soy Wiring
Honda switched to a soy-based coating for their wiring that is more biodegradable. It sounds like a pro-Earth move by the automaker, but the real reason is probably a little less triumphant: the coating costs less than plastic. Still, less …Continue reading article "Rodents Chew Soy Wiring"

A Honda fuel pump recall has been issued for more than 708,000 vehicles because the impellers in the pumps may be defective.
The plaintiff who sued claims the vehicles place occupants at risk of injuries and death because of the fuel pump failures. The Quebec fuel pump recalls allegedly didn't include all the Honda vehicles affected by the DENSO pumps.
A Honda fuel pump recall allegedly didn't include all the affected New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania Honda and Acura vehicles equipped with DENSO low-pressure fuel pumps and fuel pump assemblies, including pumps that begin with part number 17045-T.
Over 708,000 Honda and Acura vehicles are being recalled to replace their DENSO fuel pumps.
The pumps have a defect that'll cause them to stop pumping fuel to the engine. You don't need to be a mechanic to see why that's a problem.…keep reading article "Honda Recalls More DENSO Fuel Pumps That Are Really Bad at Pumping Fuel"
Well, that didn't take long. An Illinois-based soy wiring lawsuit filed a few months ago has been dismissed.
While the case tried to assert that Honda's "rodent tape" was an admission of a problem with their soy-based wire coating attracting rodents, the judge saw it as an act of good customer service.…keep reading article "The Illinois-Based Soy Wiring Lawsuit Has Already Been Dismissed"
When Michael Preston's 2015 Accord lost its power steering, he was concerned. When he found out it was because mice had chewed through his car's wires, he was pissed.

A lawsuit says the soy-coated, environmentally friendly electrical wiring used by Honda in 2012-2015 vehicles is irresistible to rabbits, mice, and other rodents.
Soy vey. When the lead plaintiff brought his 2014 Crosstour in for service, the mechanic found a rabbit living in the engine compartment and using the wires as a chew toy. To be fair, it is a warm place to hang out with lots of free soy-based snacks.
Of course, it wasn't really free. The damage cost the owner $765 dollars. That's a lot of carrots.
We've certainly heard about this before. Honda defends itself by saying it sells anti-critter tape that can be wrapped around the wires. The tape is laced with enough capsaicin (the stuff that makes peppers hot) to melt the whiskers off anything that comes sniffing around.
The lawsuit thinks owners shouldn't get stuck paying for repairs and the red-hot-chili-tape should be available for free. What do you think?keep reading article "Rodents Just Love Honda's Soy Wiring"
