According to an article on CNN.com, Honda has recalled about 572,000 Accord V6 models from 2003-2007 due to a potential engine fire risk.
The power steering hoses in these cars are at risk for leaking, creating smoke, and possibly sparking engire fires. No crashes or injuries have been reported so far. Only one engine fire has been documented.
Honda is also expanding on an earlier recall of over 50,000 Acura TL’s from 2007 and 2008 for the same problem.
Power steering hoses will be replaced at dealerships free of charge, but not until early next year. Honda said it will notify owners when the parts become available. If you think your vehicle may be affected, Honda dealerships are able to make interim repairs at this time.
