The fuel pumps installed in the cars "may contain defective impellers" which is the rotating part of the pump. Over time, the defective impellers could "result in a loss of engine power or vehicle stalling" which may "potentially increase the risk of a crash," Honda said in a statement.

The carmaker refused to provide further comment to FOX Business.

Honda said it isn't aware of any crashes or injuries related to this recall.

Still, the company is encouraging owners of affected vehicles to take their car to an authorized dealer as soon when they are notified by Acura or Honda, which will occur in late May, Honda said.

Owners should expect a notice in the mail regarding the recall. Honda is replacing the fuel pumps for free.
