Recall Alert: 2004-08 Acura TSX

2006-acura-tsx
Honda is recalling 76,253 model-year 2004-08 versions of the Acura TSX compact sedan due to electrical problems, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Only cars originally sold in or currently registered in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia are affected. In these states, corrosive materials (like salt) are used to de-ice roads. If the material enters the car through a driver's shoe and saturates the carpet over time, it could come in contact with the car's electronic control unit and cause it to corrode. This could lead to the engine stalling.

Honda will start notifying owners on April 11, and dealers will install a waterproof cover on the electronic control unit for free. Owners can call Honda at 800-999-1009 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
