Not all vehicles within the affected VIN ranges are affected by this campaign. To verify vehicle eligibility, you must check for at least one of these items:

The customer has a notification letter.
The vehicle is shown as eligible on a VIN status inquiry.

In addition, check for a punch mark above the third character of the engine compartment VIN. A punch mark in that location means this campaign has already been completed.

Some vehicles affected by this campaign may be in your new or used vehicle inventory. As a matter of federal law, these vehicles must be repaired before they are sold.

Should a dealership sell an unrepaired vehicle that subsequently causes an injury or damage because of the recalled item, the dealership will be solely responsible to the damaged party, and will be required to defend and indemnify American Honda for any resulting claims. To see if a vehicle in inventory is affected by this campaign, do a VIN status inquiry before selling it.

CUSTOMER NOTIFICATION
Owners of affected vehicles will receive a notification of this campaign. An example of the customer notification is included at the end of this service bulletin.

CORRECTIVE ACTION
Replace the fuel line.
