WASHINGTON -- Honda Motor Co. is recalling new models of the Honda Civic to prevent fuel from leaking from the car's fuel tank.
The recall covers about 18,000 Civics from the 2011 model year.
Honda says a plastic case that covers a valve in the fuel pump module could break or crack. That, in turn, could lead to a fuel leak in a roll-over crash, and the leaking fuel could lead to a fire.
Honda dealers will inspect the fuel pump module and replace it if necessary at no cost to the owner. The recall is expected to begin by April 11.
For more information, owners can contact Honda at (800) 999-1009.
