Honda Recalls 2.1M Accords Due To Fire Risk
WINNIPEG, MB. — Honda is recalling 2.1-million Accord vehicles worldwide.
There’s a problem with the seals on battery sensors, which is a fire hazard.
Salt and moisture can get in, corrode the terminals, and cause an engine fire.
The recall affects nearly 52,000 vehicles in Canada.
Honda says 1.15-million Accords from 2013-2016 are affected in the United States.
The vehicle manufacturer began investigating in 2015 after an engine compartment fire in our country.
A similar report came from China in 2016.
Vehicle owners will be notified shortly and Honda plans a temporary fix by applying a sealant.
Once parts become available, Honda will replace the defective sensors.
