Vehicles need fuel pumps to function properly so those vehicles can safely transfer occupants from one point to another, but the DENSO low-pressure pumps allegedly can't handle the job.

Design flaws allegedly cause the fuel pumps to fail because the impellers crack and absorb water and fuel. This can deform the impellers which can then come into contact with the fuel pumps, damaging the components and causing the pumps to fail.

A damaged fuel pump will cause the check engine and master warning lights to illuminate, the engine will not run properly, the vehicle will stall and a driver won't be able to start the vehicle.

Customers will likely have no warning of fuel pump problems until the vehicles begin suffering problems. This can suddenly create dangerous driving conditions for occupants and all on the roads.

According to the DENSO Canadian class action, customers have suffered diminished values of their vehicles, a loss of use of the vehicles and the added expense of rental cars.

Additionally, the lawsuit alleges customers have lost money for replacement parts, towing, diagnosis and repairs. And the plaintiffs claim customers should be reimbursed for pain, suffering, trouble and inconvenience.
