Honda recalling about 10,800 Accord sedans and Pilot sport
Honda Motor Co. is recalling about 10,800 Accord sedans and Pilot sport utility vehicles to prevent possible front suspension failure.
A potential problem with the machinery used to tighten the spindle nuts on the front axles of both vehicles, as well as the damper attachment bracket bolts for the Pilot, may cause the front suspension failure in a small number of vehicles, Honda said.
Owners of identified model year 2010 to 2011 Accord and model year 2011 Pilot vehicles will receive notification to bring their vehicle to a Honda dealer for inspection. After inspection of the Accord, the dealer will replace the spindle nuts; after inspection of the Pilot, the dealer will replace the spindle nuts and if necessary the front damper attachment bracket bolts.
Honda is announcing this recall to encourage all owners of affected vehicles to take their vehicle to an authorized dealer as soon as they receive notification from Honda that their vehicle requires repair. Honda owners can go to www.recalls.honda.com or call (800) 999-1009, and select option 4.
