Honda Accord Recall

Japanese automaker Honda is recalling 1.5 million recent Accord models globally to prevent engine fires after discovering a defect with the vehicle's battery system. Honda stated it had linked four reports of engine fires to the defect. The recall affects 1.15 million cars in the United States from the 2013 through 2016 model-year.

Honda Recalls 1.5 Million Accord Models

On July 14, 2017, Honda announced that it is recalling 1.5 million recent Accord models globally in response to a defect with the vehicle's battery system. The Japanese automaker reached this decision after investigating four reports of engine fires and linking them to the same defect.

Honda Vehicles Recalled Due to Defective Air Bags

On October 20, 2014, Toyota Motor Corporation recalled 247,000 vehicles in the United States due to potentially defective air bags manufactured by Takata Corporation. Since 2008, more than 16 million vehicles have been recalled globally because of defective Takata air bags.

22 Million Vehicles Recalled in 2013

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released a report on Monday indicating almost 22 million vehicles were recalled in the United States last year by automakers. Of those 22 million vehicles Toyota topped the list, recalling more than 5 million of its vehicles in 15 different recalls in 2013. Chrysler Group came in a close second, with about 4.6 million vehicles recalled in 36 different recalls. Rounding out the top five spots on the list were Honda, Hyundai-Kia, and Ford. The number of vehicles involved in a 2013 safety recall increased by more than 5 million from 2012.

Honda Odyssey Minivan Recall

Honda has recently announced its decision to recall 344,000 of its 2007-2008 Odyssey minivans due to a computer malfunction that has reported to have caused heavy and unexpected braking without the driver pressing on the brake pedal. Further, it does not appear that the back brake lights come on or "illuminate" as it is described in the recall. The recall is part of a worldwide recall of 381,000 Honda vehicles and is being coordinated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) here in the United States.

Honda Recalling Another 76,000 Vehicles

According to the New York Times, Honda is recalling about 76,000 2004 to 2008 Acura TSX models in the United States because of a stalling problem. The recall covers only vehicles sold or registered in so called salt-belt states. Those states are Connecticut, Delaware, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, Vermont, Wisconsin, West Virginia, and the District of Columbia. That is what is called a regional recall, and for years consumer advocates, like the Center for Auto Safety, have objected to such limited actions. The basic criticism is that the tactic saves automakers money, but in a fluid society some vehicles could be missed. Automakers and N.H.T.S.A. have defended the strategy as practical and safe.

Honda Recalls More than 800,000 Vans and SUV's

Other vehicles also being recalled are the 230,000 Acura MDX SUVs made from 2003 to 2006.

Another Recall for Honda

According to USA Today, Honda announced that it is recalling nearly 1,500 of its 2006-model CR-V crossover SUVs. This recall is the result of a faulty part that could cause the vehicle to go out of control. The manufacturer states that the right-front lower control arm on some models was improperly welded and could potentially break. If the control arm, which is part of the suspension and steering system, breaks the vehicle could lose control causing serious injuries and even death. The official statement from Honda is below.
