Honda "Recall" in Aussie Accord

Honda car stumbled a problem in Australia. Minimum 45,524 Honda Accord Euro models problematic and should be withdrawn for repair (recall) across Australia. The cause is suspected leaks in power steering hose. This has the potential to trigger a fire.

"The temperature in the heat under the hood can make a power steering hose expands and leaks occur prematurely. Oli also has the potential to get out, and produce smoke, burning smell, and could trigger the most severe fires,"writes Honda Australia as reported by caradvice, Wednesday (30 / 3 / 2011).

Honda will contact all customers by mail, ask them immediately to the authorized repair shop to check the vehicle. Until this news was revealed, Honda admitted that he had noted several reports related to the problem at the dealership.
