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.

  1. Failure of the low-pressure pumps cause further problems "downstream" that also cost money to repair and diminish the resale value of the vehicle.
  2. 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!).

Denso Fuel Pump Failure

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
