Honda to Recall 165,000 Vehicles to Remedy Engine Problem

March 21, 2007

WASHINGTON, D.C. --- Honda Motor Corp. is recalling about 165,000 vehicles from the 2005-2006 model years in the U.S. in order to remedy potential engine problems. According to an Associated Press report, Honda said the recall affected 2005 models of the Acura RL, TL and TSX sedans, 2005 Honda Accord coupes, sedans and hybrids, 2005 Odyssey minivans and 2006 Ridgeline trucks. A Honda spokesman told the AP that some vehicles had seen sealer material leak into a coil wire inside the fuel pump relay. If the wire becomes brittle and snaps as a result, the engine can stall or fail to start.No injuries or crashes have been linked to the problem. Dealers will perform an inspection and replace the fuel pump relay free of charge. The recall is expected to start early next month.
