Honda recalls over 500,000 Accords

| No Comments

Honda Motor Company has issued a recall for more than 500,000 of its widely-popular Accord because of a potential fire risk in the car's engine.

To recall covers roughly 572,000 Accord V6's from model years 2003-2007, reported CNN News. The power steering hoses in these models have a risk of leaking, creating smoke and potentially sparking engine fires, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

At this point, no crashes or injuries have been reported except for one documented engine fire, Honda said in a statement Friday.

This recall is an expansion of a previous recall made by Honda in May of around 53,000 2007 and 2008 Acura TL's, according to WPTV Channel 5 News. The car company is promising to replace these power steering hoses free of charge, but replacement parts won't be available until next year.

This is just one recall in a list of recalls Honda has issued, ranging from the CR-V and Acura ILX to the Odyssey minivan, reported WPTV Channel 5 News.
