Honda CR-V and Civic Oil Dilution Class Action Investigation

Migliaccio & Rathod LLP is investigating potential claims of fuel dilution and buildup in the engine oil of 2017-2018 Honda CR-V and Civic vehicles with the 1.5L Turbo engine. Under normal circumstances, un-combusted gasoline accumulates in the lubricant oil pan and evaporates under heat from the engine, that then ends up back in the engine combustion chamber as fuel. In cold temperatures, however, the engine may not warm up enough to evaporate the un-combusted gasoline. Honda owners are reporting that this leads to gasoline diluting the engine oil which manifests in a strong smell of gasoline inside the cabin, in the short term, and gasoline in the oil that may lead to engine damage in the long term. Some drivers have reported that the car’s check-engine light has switched on as result. Honda has already issued a recall in China for the same 2017-2018 CR-V’s and Civics, but has yet to issue a recall here in the US.
