Statement by Acura Regarding Power Steering Hose Recall: 2007-2008
05/17/2012 - TORRANCE, Calif.
Acura will voluntarily recall 52,615 model-year 2007-2008 TL sedans in
the United States to replace the power steering hose. Over time, the
power steering hose may deteriorate and develop a fluid leak. Leaking
power steering fluid could lead to loss of power steering assistance
or, if it leaks onto a catalytic converter it may result in smoke, or
in the worst case, fire. No crashes, injuries or fires have been
reported related to this issue.
Acura is announcing this recall to encourage owners of all affected
vehicles to take their vehicles to an authorized dealer as soon as
they receive notification of this recall from Acura. Mailed
notification to customers will begin in mid-June 2012. In addition to
contacting customers by mail, in mid-June, owners of these vehicles
will be able to determine if their vehicles require repair by going
on-line to www.recalls.acura.com or by calling (800) 382-2238, and
selecting option 4.
