Last month Denso announced that nearly 2 million of its low-pressure fuel pumps will need to be recalled before they cause the engine to stall. The recall will replace the pumps in certain vehicles but a new Canadian lawsuit says that doesn't go far enough.
- Failure of the low-pressure pumps cause further problems "downstream" that also cost money to repair and diminish the resale value of the vehicle.
- The recalls don't go far enough to warn drivers that they should stop driving their vehicles until they are fixed.
The lawsuit references recalls in the US and covers class-members in all Candian provinces except, oddly, Quebec (tant pis pour toi!).More information on carcomplaints.com
The impellers inside of Denso branded fuel pumps may have been excessively exposed to a drying agent during manufacturing. This leads to them cracking, absorbing fuel, and deforming so badly that they stop sending fuel to the engine. Subaru
