Default Acura recalling 76,000 TSX sedans in certain cold-weather states

From AB

Report Receipt Date: MAR 15, 2013

NHTSA Campaign Number: 13V093000

Component(s): ELECTRICAL SYSTEM , ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING
Potential Number of Units Affected: 76,253
Manufacturer: Honda (American Honda Motor Co.)

SUMMARY:

Honda is recalling certain model year 2004-2008 Acura TSX vehicles
originally sold in, or currently registered in, Connecticut, Delaware,
Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts,
Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York,
Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia,
Wisconsin and the District of Columbia. In states that use corrosive
materials for deicing, driver's footwear may bring in materials that
saturate the vehicle's carpeting, which is in contact with the
vehicle's engine Electronic Control Unit (ECU). As a result, the ECU
case may experience rust or corrosion. This damage may potentially
cause the engine to stall.

CONSEQUENCE:

A vehicle stall increases the risk of a crash.

REMEDY:

Honda will notify owners and Acura dealers will inspect the vehicle
and replace any damaged ECU, free of charge. All vehicles will have a
waterproof cover installed onto the ECU, free of charge. The recall is
expected to begin on April 11, 2013. Owners may contact Honda at
1-800-999-1009.
