Honda's Acura luxury division has announced the recall of nearly 53,000 TL sedans. The recall covers models from the 2007 and 2008 model years.

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.
