Honda Fury Recall 2017: Fuel Tank Problems!
Got A 2010, 2016 Or 2017 Honda Fry? This May Concern You
Updated August 24, 2018
If you’ve ever had your fuel tank replaced on your Honda Fury, then you might want to pay attention: it’s recall time! While this isn’t exactly the biggest or most important recall of the year, if you’re one of the 20 affected units, then this is big deal. And because only 20 units are affected, if you know anyone with a Honda Fury, you might want to let them know that there’s a recall coming.
Honda Fury Problems: The Reason
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the recall is happening because of a fuel tank problem. Namely, the fuel tank is actually missing necessary welds that secure the tank to stay brackets. There are a welds there, but only tack welds. The error was caused thanks to a disruption at a factory which saw the tanks waved through the final welding process.
While the tack welds have worked so far, the problem needs fixing properly. Road and engine vibrations and slight shocks could very well disrupt the tank’s seating and cause the welds to break, leading to a fuel leak which could turn into a pretty big problem, as you can imagine.
Naturally, Honda are going to rectify the problem and the firm has promised to get in touch with all affected owners and will inspect the fuel tank welds, and even replace the fuel tank if needs be – all free of charge, of course. If you’re wondering whether your Honda Fury is affected or not, then get in touch with American Honda by calling 1-888-234-2138. If your Honda Fury is a 2010, 2016 or 2017 model that received a replacement fuel tank, you could be affected. No replacement fuel tank? Then you’re probably fine.
The recall is expected to begin in December 2017. If you want more information, feel free to contact the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236, and check the latest information at safercar.gov.
