American Honda Motor Co. has recently announced a recall for several units of the Accord and CR-V because of a possible engine loss.
Two Honda models, the Accord and the CR-V, are currently the subject of a recall which has been announced by the carmaker’s American wing. The two models are suffering from an issue with the connecting rod bolts in the engine which may block and cause the engine to stall. If this happens, the risk of an accident will increase.
“The affected vehicles may have been assembled with improperly torqued connecting rod bolts, which can cause the engine to lose power or leak oil. Loss of engine power may result in a vehicle stall, increasing the risk of a crash. If the engine leaks oil in the proximity of a hot engine or exhaust components, there is an increased risk of a fire”, said the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The affected Honda Accord vehicles have been produced between the 29th of July, 2014, and the 31st of July 2014, for the 2014 model year, while the 2015 model year units have been assembled between the 14th of August, 2014, and the 30th of January, 2015. The CR-Vs have been made between September 9, 2014, and February 6, 2015. The total number of affected vehicles is 137. The recall is expected to begin on the 27th of March. Honda is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to this recall. For any extra details on the topic, owners can contact Honda at 1-888-234-2138 or the NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236.
