Honda recalls 167,000 Acura TSX for possible fire hazard
Saturday 01 May 2010
Honda Motor Company's luxury vehicle division Acura announced Friday a recall of some 167,000 Acura TSX models to replace a power steering hose that could lead to a "smoke or a fire" hazard.
"Affected TSX vehicles are 2004-2008 models sold in the United States with the 2.4L inline 4-cylinder engine," a company statement said, adding that the repair "involves installing a new power steering hose, o-ring gasket and fluid."
Honda said the hose has a potential "for premature deterioration... as a result of prolonged exposure to high under-hood temperatures" and could develop cracks allowing power steering fluid to leak on the hot exhaust system "potentially generating smoke or a fire."
The repair, it added, will be "all done at no cost to the vehicle owner."
In mid-April, Honda recalled several hundred of its 2010 Acura ZDX to inspect passenger-side air bags.
