Recall Alert: Acura TSX

Posted: May. 03, 2010

Acura is recalling more than 160,000 TSX sedans from model years 2004 through 2008 in order to replace power steering hoses that can crack due to engine heat, which could lead to a vehicle fire.

In a recall alert filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the automaker explains, “Prolonged high under hood temperatures may cause the power steering hose to deteriorate prematurely and may cause the hose to crack and leak power steering oil. Oil leaking onto a hot exhaust pipe will generate smoke and a burning smell, and could potentially result in an under hood fire.”

Acura dealers will replace the hoses free of charge. Dealers will begin contacting owners in late May, but those who wish to make their own repair arrangements may contact Acura at 1-800-382-2238.
