Fire Risk Triggers Acura TSX Recall

May 05, 2010

WASHINGTON - Honda Motor Co. is recalling about 167,000 MY 2004-2008 Acura TSX cars because of the risk of a fire occurring under the hood. 

In certain vehicles, high temperatures under the hood could eventually cause the power steering hose to crack and leak power steering oil. The oil, in turn, could leak onto a hot exhaust pipe and pose a fire risk or cause burning, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 

The recall begins this month. 

Vehicle owners can reach Acura at (800) 382-2238.
