Canadian Lawsuit Wants More Transparency with the Denso Fuel Pump Recall

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!).

Have a complaint about your vehicle?

The best way to find out what's wrong with a vehicle is from the people who drive them. Not only do owner complaints help us rank vehicles by reliability, but they're often used to spark class-action lawsuits and warranty extensions. Plus, they're a great way to vent.
