Honda Accord Recalls

Honda is recalling certain Accords due to tire valve stems that were damaged during the assembly process. This can cause the tires to lose air pressure, which can result in steering pull, tire overheating, and eventual tire failure. Dealers will inspect and replace damaged tire stems.
Honda is recalling the seat belts on 1991 Accord models because the rear outside seating position safety belts may lock up at angles that do not meet federal safety standards.
