Honda mass vehicle recall
Risk of Battery Fire Causes Honda to Recall More Than 2 Million Accords
July 18, 2017
Automaker Honda has issued a recall for about 2.1 million 2013-2016 Accords due to a possible risk of fire related to the vehicles’ battery sensors.
The recall affects vehicles in 75 countries. More than half of the affected vehicles are in the U.S., where four reports of engine fires have been filed. No injuries have been reported.
Honda will replace all battery sensors at no cost to the cars’ owners.
The reason for the recall is that one of the battery sensors may not be properly sealed, a condition which can admit moisture or other conductive materials that may then cause corrosion, electrical shorts, smoke, and/or fire.
Other Honda vehicles currently under recall include more than 350,000 2016 Civics with faulty parking brakes, as well as any and all vehicles in which potentially explosive Takata airbags had been installed.
