Honda announced today that it will recall 1,695 of its 2013 model year Accord sedans. 

The company issued the recall campaign independent of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which is the government agency behind most vehicle recalls in the U.S.

Fuel tanks in affected vehicles might not seal properly at a connection point on the top of the tank. The flaw was discovered during warranty repairs, the company said today in a statement.

An improper seal could lead to a fuel leak, but Honda said it isn’t aware of any injuries or accidents as a result of the issue. Owners with affected vehicles should expect to receive notification from Honda, at which point the maker is urging them to bring the car to a dealer for service. The repairs will be carried out free of charge.

Notification will be sent out starting August 2.
