According to Honda, the TL sedans in the recall may have been fitted with a defective power steering hose. Over time the hose could deteriorate, potentially causing a leak. Honda warns that a leak could cause the car to lose power steering or even cause a fire.
Honda says that no crashes or injuries have been linked to the defect. The Acura TL recall campaign will begin sometime next month.
Is Honda's latest recall seems familiar, that's because it is. Honda recalled 273,000 Acura TL models in 2008 for a similar issue, according to the Detroit Free Press. That recall covered vehicles from the 2004-2008 model years.
