The Japanese based automaker Honda has recently announced a recall for the 2007 – 2008 Acura TL sedans because of a problem with the steering hose.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 52,615 units of the 2007 – 2008 Acura TL sedan units will be affected by this recall and owners of the model will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to fix the issue with the steering hose. The NHTSA is saying that the power steering hose might burst and, if this happens, the steering will be less responsive, leading to a possible catastrophic engine failure and even a fire in the engine compartment if the fluid starts leaking
Honda says that no reports of crashes or injuries have been received until now because of this defect. Owners of the model mentioned above will be contacted by the Japanese based car manufacturer by mail soon and the recall is expected to start in mid-June. The Acura TS sedans affected by this recall are from the 2007 and 2008 model years, but the vehicles in question have also been recalled back in 2008 for a similar problem (2004-2008 model years). Owners can contact Acura Client Relations at 800-382-2238 or the NHTSA Auto Safety Hotline at (888) 327-4236.
