Defective fuel pump to blame

Honda Motor Co. said Sept. 4 it will recall more than 580,000 mini-vehicles spanning six models in Japan because of a defective fuel pump that could lead to engine failure.

The 581,353 units covering six models -- the Acty, Vamos, Vamos Hobio, Life, That's and Zest -- were manufactured from January 2005 to August 2007, Japan's second-biggest automaker said in a report to the transport ministry.

Honda also reported to the ministry that it would repair defective power-steering in 1,573 station wagons of the Step WGN and CR-V models produced in February last year.
