Honda recalls 2 more models because of engine glitch
Reuters | 2018/9/14

BEIJING -- Honda Motor Co. is recalling 22,702 Honda Jade cars and 27,554 Acura CDX crossovers in China, market regulators said on Thursday, because of a cold-climate engine problem that has already forced the recall of hundreds of thousands of vehicles.

A Honda spokesman based in Beijing said Honda will have to recall six models, affecting 591,055 vehicles because of the same engine issue.

"The latest recalls are the last of (a) series of product call-backs," the spokesman said.

The Japanese automaker has been forced to conduct those recalls in China due to problems caused by an unusual amount of uncombusted gasoline that can collect in the engine's lubricant oil pan.

The issue, in some cases, can cause a strong odor of gasoline inside the car and in other cases the vehicle's check-engine light can come on, Honda has said.

The Honda Jade and Acura CDX are produced in China by Hondas joint ventures with local Chinese automaker partners.

Acura is Honda's premium brand of vehicles.

Honda said the problem does not affect the engine's performance and there have been no reports of accidents.
