Engine defect! Honda recalls nearly 250000 vehicles

AutoBeta( Report--

Honda will recall nearly 250000 cars made between 2015 and 2020 in the United States because of defective engines, according to a recent recall submitted by Honda to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), according to media reports today. The recalled models include the 2015-2020 Acura TLX, the 2016-2020 Acura MDX, the 2016 and 2018-2019 Pilot, the 2017 and 2019 Ridgeline and the 2018-2019 Odyssey.

As for the reasons for the recall, officials said that it was mainly because the equipment for manufacturing the engine crankshaft was improperly set up, and during the production of the crankshaft, the crank pin was improperly polished, resulting in a crown or convex shape of the crank pin, which did not meet the specifications, which could easily lead to engine connecting rod bearing wear and jam, damaging the engine. A damaged engine may malfunction or stall while the vehicle is running, increasing the risk of fire, crash or personal injury.

In addition, Honda spokesman Chris Martin also said in response to the recall that only models made in the United States with Vmur6 engines have been affected. In addition, about 30,000 cars in Canada and Mexico will be affected by the failure. Follow-up dealers will carry out free inspection and maintenance of the engine and replace the engine if necessary. The notice letter of the car owner will be sent on January 2 next year. Car owners who have completed repairs at their own expense before the recall can apply for reimbursement according to the recall reimbursement plan filed with NHTSA by Honda.

Officials say it is estimated that only 1% of vehicles may break down and need to be repaired. It said it had received 1450 warranty claims as of November 3, 2023, but none of them were reports of casualties caused by engine failure. At the same time, it is also indicated that if the problem occurs, the driver may feel abnormal engine noise, flameout or reduced output power, and the "engine failure" indicator will be lit. It is recommended that car owners should pay attention to check the engine lights and listen to the engine for abnormal sound during driving.

It is worth noting that this is not Toyota's massive recall this year. On Oct. 25, Honda will recall a total of 176410 Civic four-door and five-door Civic cars from 2022-2024 due to incorrect steering gear assembly or tire damage, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Honda will replace the electric power steering rack for car owners in this recall.

Honda recalled 1.3 million cars worldwide on June 24 because of potential problems with the rearview camera images that could prevent them from appearing on the display screen. Of these, 1.2 million vehicles were recalled in the United States, 88000 in Canada and 16000 in Mexico. The vehicles involved include some Odyssey produced in 2018-2023, Pilot in 2019-2022 and Passport in 2019-2023. For this recall, the dealer will install an improved cable harness at the existing display audio and vehicle terminal connections, as well as a correction cover on the vehicle cable connector to properly connect the audio display unit.

Judging from several Honda recalls, the number of recalls is still relatively large. Of course, there are hidden dangers in the safety of vehicles, and the official recall reflects the responsible attitude of car companies towards car owners, but frequent large-scale recalls will also cause car owners to question the quality of the brand.
