Honda expands North American recall to include over 600,000 Accords | Reuters
Honda is recalling 573,147 Accords in the United States equipped with V6
engines from model years 2003 through 2007, according to documents filed with
the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In Canada, the number
of affected Accords is 30,058, a company spokesman said.
The addition of the Accords to already recalled Acura TL cars from model
years 2007 and 2008 raises the number of affected vehicles in the United States
and Canada to 660,086.
The power steering hose in the cars may deteriorate prematurely due to high
temperatures, resulting in cracks and leaks that could cause a loss of power
steering assistance or smoke and possibly a fire, Honda said.
