PhotoAmerican Honda Motor Co., is recalling 4,445 model year 2014-2019 Acura ILXs.

The vehicles may have a deformed fuel tank, raising the height of the fuel pump and allowing the fuel level float to stick, possibly causing the fuel gauge to display an inaccurate fuel level.

If the fuel gauge indicates that the vehicle has more gas than it actually does, the vehicle may run out of gas and stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Acura will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and -- as necessary -- replace the fuel tank, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin on March 8, 2019.

Owners may contact Acura customer service at 1-888-234-2138. Acura's number for this recall is H3U, Z3T.
