Honda has recalled 2001-2002 Civic, Civic SI, and Accord vehicles and 2002-2003 Acura TL vehicles because the driver's side air bag inflator could produce excessive internal pressure. This may cause the inflator to rupture if the air bag deploys. Metal fragments may pass through the air bag material and cause injury to vehicle occupants. Dealers will replace the driver's side air bag inflator.
Acura has recalled certain 2004-2007 TL models because the power steering hose may leak onto the extremely hot catalytic converter, which may cause a fire hazard. Dealers will replace the power steering hose with a new heat-resistant design.
Acura has recalled 2004-2005 TL vehicles because the wiper motor may stop working. Water may enter the wiper motor breather port and cause corrosion, which may cause the electrical circuit in the wiper motor to fail. Dealers will replace corroded wiper motors and modifications will be made to prevent water from entering the existing or new wiper motor.
The inappropriate certification label may be present at the driver's door jam area. This will provide improper tire and wheel information. Dealers will remove the incorrect label and install the proper label. The Acura recall number is Q54. This recall began on August 20, 2007.
Honda has recalled 2005 Accord, Odyssey, Acura RL, TL, TSX, and 2006 Ridgeline models because the fuel pump relay may fail. This can prevent the fuel pump from operating, which may cause the engine to stall or not start. Dealers will replace the fuel pump relay.
Some optional trailer hitches may not have been properly welded during installation. The hitch may separate from the vehicle while in use, which could result in a crash. The recall began November 29, 2006. The Honda recall number is Q29.
Honda has recalled 2006 Accord, Civic, CR-V, Element, Insight, Odyssey, Pilot, Ridgeline, Acura MDX, RL, RSX, TL, TSX, and 2007 Honda Fit vehicles because the contact information for the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is listed incorrectly in the owner's manual. Honda is contacting dealers and customers to provide them with a postcard containing the correct information.
Acura has recalled 2006 TL vehicles because the bolts that mount the front air bag external impact sensors may be loose. If the sensor bolts fall out, the sensor may not function properly, which may prevent air bag deployment in the event of an accident. Dealers will inspect and re-torque the front air bag external impact sensor bolts.
