TORRANCE, Calif. (WWJ/AP) – Honda Motor Co.’s luxury Acura brand is recalling 76,000 TSX sedans in 22 cold-weather states, including Michigan, because corrosion could cause them to stall.
TSX sedans from the 2004 through 2008 model years are included in the recall.
Acura says that in places where road salt is heavily used, salt and water can saturate the carpet under the dashboard that covers the vehicle’s electrical control unit. Salty water can corrode the metal case that houses the electrical unit. If that corrosion damages the wiring in the unit, the vehicle may stall.
Acura says no crashes or injuries related to the problem have been reported.
Honda will install a water-resistant cover over the electrical unit at no cost to owners who will be officially notified by the company next month.
