Honda Recalls Pickups – May Catch Fire when Washed!

Got a dirty Honda Ridgeline and some joker has scrawled “Wash me” in the dirt on your pickup?

Ignore that advice, since Honda and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have recalled some 106,683 of the vehicles, saying they could catch fire after being washed.

The 2017, 2018, and 2019 models have an issue where the acid from car wash soaps could result in the fuel pump feed line cracking. That quirk increases the odds the truck will catch fire.

While the issue was discovered last month, the recall begins on March 7.

Owners of the trucks are encouraged to bring them into the dealership beginning in early March to have the pumps and, if necessary, pump cover, replaced free of charge.
