The Japanese based automaker Honda has recently announced a recall for some Acura TSX models, because of a possible corrosion problem.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 76,000 units of the Acura TSX will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem fixed. The NHTSA says that the reason for this recall is to install a water-resitant cover on the ECU because in some cold-weather states, the use of salts on the road is saturating the carpet under the dashboard covering the metal case with the ECU.
If this happens, corrosion can “hit” the ECU, damaging it if it will be exposed for long periods of time. Honda says that Acura dealers have been informed of this recall and the action will be performed at no cost to the owner. No injuries or accidents have been reported because of this problem. The affected Acura TSX models are from the 2004 to 2008 model years. The recall will begin in mid-April. Owners of the above mentioned model can contact Acura at 1-800-382-2238.
