Honda recalls 2013 Accords over fuel tank issue

American Honda Motor Co., Inc. is recalling certain model year 2013 Accord vehicles that are Low-Emission Vehicle (LEV) II rated that were manufactured Jan. 15, 2013, through April 5, 2013. The fuel tank neck may be out of specification causing the fuel pump to not properly seal to the fuel tank.

An insufficient seal may lead to a fuel leak which increases the risk of a fire.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel tank, nut and O-ring gasket free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Aug. 1, 2013. Honda's recall number is JA9. Owners may contact Honda at 1-310-783-2000.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
