American Honda Lawnmower and Pressure Washer Replacement Engine Recall Class Action Lawsuit

American Honda Lawnmower and Pressure Washer Replacement Engine Recall sue liability lawyer attorney

American Honda Motor is recalling replacement engines for Honda lawnmowers and pressure washers because of defective camshafts in the engine. This can cause the starter rope to retract on its own while the user is pulling on it, which can result in a variety of injuries.

This recall is an expansion on a previous recall (September 2023) for American Honda lawnmower and power washer engines. The recall is for the GCV170/200 G5B general purpose replacement engine for power washers and for Honda HRN216 and HRX217K6 Lawnmowers. Click here for instructions on how to locate the model and serial number for your lawnmower or pressure washer.

Please note that American Honda has received more than 4,000 reports of defective camshafts in the recalled engines, starting from the original recall in September 2023. So far, we know of 38 cases where people were injured, so you should stop using your power washer or lawnmower if it was equipped with the recalled replacement engine. The manufacturer is asking consumers to contact them directly, so that a free inspection and repair service can be arranged.

On the other hand, those who have been injured by this product should contact a product recall injury attorney, who can help them file a claim for monetary damages. Our law firm is here to assist you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so call us today and schedule a free consultation.

Injuries Caused by a Defective American Honda Replacement Engine

Starting a lawnmower or power washer with a starter cord requires considerable force. As you pull on the engine, the last thing you expect is for the cord to retract on its own. When it does, you are jerked forward unexpectedly, which can cause you to fall down on the ground or on the machine. Even if you don’t fall down, you can still injure various parts of your body from the force of the rope pulling away from you. Potential injuries caused by defects in a power washer or lawnmower replacement engine may result in the following injuries:

  • Soft tissue injuries from overstretching of muscles and ligaments
  • Dislocated shoulder or elbow
  • Knee fracture
  • Cuts and abrasions
  • Broken bones
  • Wrist or ankle sprain
  • Head trauma, including traumatic brain injury
Steps to Take after an Accident

As soon as you are injured, it’s important to take the right steps and safeguard your health, as well as your right to monetary compensation from the manufacturer. Here are some recommendations on what to do if you or your loved one was hurt from the starter cord retracting on its own while you were trying to start an American Honda lawnmower or power washer:

  • Take photos of any visible injuries and the product that is responsible for the accident.
  • Go to the hospital immediately or within 72 hours, to ensure that you receive proper treatment for your injuries. You must also have proof of the harm you sustained from the accident, which can only be established by seeing a doctor right away.
  • Obtain contact information or written statements from witnesses, if any.
  • After you have seen a doctor, report your accident to the manufacturer.
  • Make sure to say no if they offer anything to remedy the situation, like a free replacement product, repair service, or refund.
  • Seek help from a lawyer with experience in lawsuits against negligent manufacturers.
