Honda Accord Recalls
On certain Accord models, the fuel tank may not have been manufactured correctly. The area of concern is the mounting location for the fuel pump. As a result a fuel leak may develop, increasing the risk of a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel tank and fuel pump seal to correct this concern.
A propellant with an incorrect specification may have been used during assembly of the side curtain airbags. As a result, one or both side curtain airbags may not deploy in the event of a crash. Failure of a side curtain airbag will increase the risk of injury. Dealers will inspect and replace the side curtain airbag assembly as necessary to correct this concern.
Certain driving styles can result in a broken outer race of the secondary shaft bearing inside the automatic transmission. A broken outer race may cause abnormal noise, the Check Engine Light to turn on, and contact between the transmission idle gear and an electronic sensor housing to occur. This could result in a short circuit, causing the engine to stall. Also, pieces of the outer race or ball bearing may become lodged in the parking pawl, resulting in the vehicle rolling after the driver has placed the shifter in the Park position. Dealers will update the transmission control module software to correct this concern. The Honda recall number is R89.
