Baku – APA-Economics. Honda is launching a recall of approximately 167,000 Acura TSX vehicles to replace a power steering hose, Honda Motor Co. said on its website, Xinhua reported.

The affected TSX vehicles are 2004-2008 models sold in the United States with the 2.4L inline 4-cylinder engine. The repair involves installing a new power steering hose, o-ring gasket and fluid-- all done at no cost to the vehicle owner, Honda said.

The recall is being conducted due to the potential for premature deterioration of the exterior surface of the hose as a result of prolonged exposure to high under-hood temperatures. In the event of excessive deterioration, a crack in the hose could develop, which could allow power steering fluid to leak or spray on a hot exhaust component potentially generating smoke or a fire.

Honda has only received notice of one incident resulting in a fire, it said.
