Several news organizations across the country have revealed that yet another model of Honda vehicles is being recalled.
The official recall announcement has revealed that an issue with steering hoses has prompted the recall alert. According to the carmaker, 53,000 units of Acura TL sedan were equipped with these defective hoses that could experience a quick deterioration and lead to a leak, which could present a serious risk of fire to drivers and passengers. The Japanese automaker has also disclosed that these defective steering hoses could lead to a loss of power steering assistance. Another issue the luxury brand Acura and its executives would like to avoid.
The 2007 and 2008 models of these vehicles are listed under this recall notice and although no injuries or incidents have been reported, registered owners will receive letters mentioning the recall alert in mid-June. According to the firm, all recalled 2007 and 2008 Acura TL vehicles are being inspected and repaired for free at Acura dealers.
Since most recalls reportedly show a completion rate of less than 55%, the company has stressed the importance of staying alert to recall notices and to respond to the alerts by contacting the manufacturer as soon as possible.
If you own one of these recalled vehicles, do not wait until the letter arrives or until the moment you’re involved in an accident caused by these defective steering hoses. Contact a local Acura dealer to schedule a visit and to have your vehicle promptly repaired.
Stay safe and keep your loved ones away from harm by heeding recall alerts related to products or vehicles you own.
