From AB








Vehicle Make / Model / Model Year(s):

ACURA / TL / 2007-2008
HONDA / ACCORD / 2003-2007

Manufacturer: HONDA (AMERICAN HONDA MOTOR CO.)
Report Receipt Date: MAY 17, 2012
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 12V222000
NHTSA Action Number: N/A
Component: STEERING:HYDRAULIC POWER ASSIST:HOSE, PIPING, AND
CONNECTIONS
Potential Number of Units Affected: 625,762

Summary

Honda is recalling certain model year 2007 and 2008 Acura TL and model
year 2003-2007 Accord V6 vehicles. In May 2012, Honda filed a defect
report to recall certain model year 2007 and 2008 Acura TL vehicles.
In September 2012, Honda informed the agency that it was including an
additional 573,147 vehicles including certain model year 2003 through
2007 Accord V6 vehicles. The total number of vehicles being recalled
is now 625,762. Prolonged under-hood and power steering fluid
temperatures may cause the power steering hose to deteriorate
prematurely, resulting in cracks and power steering fluid leakage.

Consequence

If this occurs, power steering fluid can leak onto a hot catalytic
converter, leading to smoke and possibly an under-hood fire.

Remedy

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will install a new heat
resistant power steering hose, free of charge. The original recall
began in June 2012, and owners of those vehicles may obtain the free
remedy. Sufficient parts are not yet available for owners of the
vehicles covered by the September 2012 expansion, but are expected to
be available in early 2013. Honda will notify owners of these vehicles
beginning on October 26, 2012, and will notify these owners again when
parts are available so those vehicles can be brought to dealers for
applications of the free remedy. Owners may contact Honda customer
service at 1-800-999-1009.
