Washington, DC—(ENEWSPF)—May 24, 2012.
Summary: Honda is recalling certain model year 2007-2008 Acura TL vehicles. 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 Safety Recall is expected to begin on, or about, June 15, 2012. Owners may contact Honda Customer Service at 1-800-999-1009.
Notes: Honda's Recall Campaign Number is S39. Customers may contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY: 1-800-424-9153); or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
