Honda reiterated that 2020 production models are not affected by the recall, and apologizes for any inconvenience caused to its owners.
The global recall involves fuel pumps that are prone to stalling.

Honda Malaysia urges all affected customers to contact any Honda authorized dealer to make an appointment upon receipt of notification to replace the fuel pump. However, replacements subject to parts availability. The replacement stock will be available in stages.
