Vehicles Affected: Approximately 134 model-year 2019 Honda CR-V compact SUVs
The Problem: The joint weld between the fuel tank and the vapor return line may not be sufficiently welded, which could cause the weld to fail, allowing fuel to leak and increasing the risk of a fire in the presence of an ignition source
The Fix: Dealers will replace the fuel tank for free
