Acura has recently announced a recall for some units of the TSX because of a possible problem with the ECU, which might lead to an engine stall.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a total of 76,253 units of the Acura TSX across the United States will be affected by this problem and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers, because of a problem with the ECU. The NHTSA says that in states where corrosive materials are being used for deicing, the road salt and the water from the drivers’ shoes might saturate the carpet under the dashboard.
If this happens, the ECU (engine control unit) might be damaged and it might lead to an engine stall. The company’s dealers will inspect and replace the damaged ECUs and also install waterproof covers on the ECU. The affected Acura TSXs are from the 2004-2008 model years and they have been sold and registered in many states. Owners of the cars will be notified by Acura or Honda soon and the recall is expected to begin on the 11th of April. Meanwhile, if you own an Acura TSX from the 2004-2008 model year in the U.S., you should contact the carmaker at (800) 382-2238.
