Honda has announced a recall for vehicles with potentially problematic fuel tanks.

The automaker is recalling certain model year 2015 Acura MDX 2WD and MDX 4WD, 2016 Acura MDX 4WD, 2015-2016 Honda Odyssey, and 2016 Honda Pilot 2WD and 4WD vehicles. The affected vehicles have fuel tanks that were manufactured with insufficient welds which may separate and allow fuel to leak out.

A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire.

The manufacturer believes that about 40 vehicles are impacted by this issue.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel tanks, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 8, 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Honda/Acura customer service at (888) 234-2138.
